Gastropubs are the fashionable way to spend your entire weekend at the pub.

With incredible gourmet food just two feet from the bar, it’s difficult to understand why we would spend time anywhere else.

Oxfordshire has even made the list of the Top 50 Gastropubs in the UK, not once, not twice but four times!

Surely, it would be wrong to not at least try them?

The best Gastropubs in Oxfordshire

Sir Charles Napier Inn – Chinnor


In 50th place, the Sir Charles Napier Inn just makes the cut and we're so glad it did.

This 19th century inn transports you back in time with its historic red brick, wooden beams and beautiful flowering gardens.

It's the perfect place to relax after exploring the Oxfordshire countryside.

And the menu doesn't disappoint either.

We recommend the Cornish lobster with courgette flower or opt for the tender rare roast rib of Irish beef.

Magdalen Arms - Oxford


Looking for a little home away from home? Then look no further.

The Magdalen Arms is the perfect homey pub to while away the weekend in.

You could spend the whole day here as they open every morning for toasted sandwiches, toast and cakes, teas and coffees.

Their menu changes twice a day and you can expect delicious dishes like a roast bavette steak with blue cheese butter.

It is definitely going to be difficult to tear ourselves away from that menu.

Killingworth Castle – Wootton


‘The Killy’, as it’s locally known, made 38th place on the UK list.

And we can see way since it has gone from strength to strength since it was refurbished a few years back.

This 17th-century coaching inn is ideal for a weekend country escape with stunning barn bedrooms.

The kitchen prides itself on mostly organic ingredients to compliment their ownner's own craft beer.

The Wild Rabbit – Cotswold


This modern British inn won third place in the UK list and we think its exactly what a British inn should be.

The Wild Rabbit prides itself on sourcing the best ingredients from its own market garden at Daylesford farm. 

They have struck the perfect balance of the comfort food you want without sacrificing their contemporary style.

We recommend the South Devon beef ribeye with Bledington Blue cheese and pickled walnut, with one of the tempting seasonal soufflés for dessert.
