Fodor's Expert Review Crooked Billet
It's worth negotiating the maze of lanes leading to this cozy 17th-century country pub 6 miles west of Henley-on-Thames. Choices could include John Dory with anchovy beignet, and duck leg and lardons cooked in red wine. British cheeses and filling desserts round out the meal. There's a garden for open-air dining and live music on many evenings. Fixed-price lunches are a good deal. The restaurant is popular, so book ahead.
