The Chequers, Chipping Norton

I've always like Fuller's pubs and this is a little gem. I particularly like slipping off for a swifty here while the kids are off doing their stuff in Chippy. The Times crossword and a couple of ales in a decent pub - heaven!

The White Horse, Duns Tew

The White Horse benefits from being a beautiful building in a very attractive village. Slightly off the beaten track (or at least the dual carriageway from Deddington) it is worth a visit.

A new landlord and a new menu have spruced things up and on the glorious Sunday afternoon of our visit we enjoyed a straightforward and most enjoyable roast lunch. We haven't had the opportunity to try any of the rest of the menu yet but we will sometime in the not too distant future. The menu changes regularly. At the time of our visit it was Polish Week, which is not a cuisine I would normally seek out. However, judging from the noises of approval from a number of nearby tables it can't have been bad.

The usual range of keg beers are available as are some unusual real ales. Given the weather I would have liked to see a decent cider on offer but that is a quibble rather than a major issue (for me anyway). I wouldn't recommend making a special journey for the White Horse but, if you're in the area, you could do a lot worse.

The Oxford Arms, Kirtlington

My last visit was on Rememberance Sunday, which proved a very busy day for The Oxford Arms; service was consequently a trifle slow (but not unforgivably so). The food however was of the usual high standard at this excellent country pub. Several well-kept ales were available. Worth a journey.
