Over the past 17 years, Michael and Imogen North have turned The Nut Tree Inn into a pub with a formidable reputation for great food, beer and wine. Classic cooking techniques, the best produce possible and treating the ingredients with integrity is the key to balanced dishes full of flavour with a keen eye for presentation. Expect lots of local produce, including veg from the garden. Fillet of turbot, Oscietra caviar, celery, bacon, preserved lemon, poultry jus and fish velouté might lead to dessert of Valrhona chocolate mousse, caramel sauce, praline Chantilly and sea salt. Service is friendly and upbeat.

About the area

Discover Oxfordshire

Located at the heart of England, Oxfordshire enjoys a rich heritage and surprisingly varied scenery. Its landscape encompasses open chalk downland and glorious beechwoods, picturesque rivers and attractive villages set in peaceful farmland. The countryside in the northwest of Oxfordshire seems isolated by comparison, more redolent of the north of England, with its broad views, undulating landscape and dry-stone walls. The sleepy backwaters of Abingdon, Wallingford, Wantage, Watlington and Witney reveal how Oxfordshire’s old towns evolved over the centuries, while Oxford’s imposing streets reflect the beauty and elegance of ‘that sweet city with her dreaming spires.’ Fans of the fictional sleuth Inspector Morse will recognise many Oxford landmarks described in the books and used in the television series.

The county demonstrates how the strong influence of humans has shaped this part of England over the centuries. The Romans built villas in the pretty river valleys that thread their way through Oxfordshire, the Saxons constructed royal palaces here, and the Normans left an impressive legacy of castles and churches. The philanthropic wool merchants made their mark too, and many of their fine buildings serve as a long-lasting testimony to what they did for the good of the local community.
