Crowd-pleasing pub dining in the Cotswolds: The Wychwood Inn

The Cotswolds is the spiritual home of the cosy dining pub – and The Wychwood Inn a fine example of type.

Head chef Joe McCarthy honours the Shipton-under-Wychwood inn’s heritage with a menu of quality modern British dishes, adding bespoke contemporary touches via precise plating and creative interventions.

Tried-and-tested classics such as chicken kiev made with garlic and parsley cultured butter, or The Wychwood burger (served simply, with coleslaw and skin-on fries) are the kind of dishes you could revisit every week, so it’s no surprise they’re menu stalwarts.

A new heated and covered dining area in the spacious garden offers alfresco drinking and dining year-round (well-behaved dogs are welcome) so this is a fabulous spot for a post-walk pint and plate of beer-battered fish and chips.

Five comfortable guestrooms above the inn plus good cooking, an atmospheric interior and lush countryside gives The Wychwood all the credentials required for an excellent weekend away in rural Oxfordshire.
