Eat and drink by the riverside, at The Trout pub, Wolvercote
Sample local Oxfordshire food at this famously good pub on the banks of the River Thames.
Inspector Morse fans might recognise The Trout, which sits in a picturesque spot by the River Thames, featuring as it did in Colin Dexter’s TV series. In fact, the historic patronage of this 17th Century pub reads like a Who’s Who of the great and good: Lewis Carroll and C.S Lewis regularly popped in for a pint during their years at Oxford University, and even King Henry II used it as a place to meet his mistress back in the day.
The stories within its walls are matched by its extensive menu, which prides itself on using local ingredients from the Oxfordshire area. With patio seating outside in the summer, and cosy dining rooms inside for the winter, that’s Sunday afternoon sorted.
