OXFORDSHIREClick to switch between Inns and Places to Visit

xfordshire is primarily an agricultural county where wheat, barley and oats are grown. For many, the city of Oxford, with its ancient university and golden spires, provides the focal point. Its historic buildings, museums and peaceful courtyards can be explored on guided walking tours. To the north is the village of Woodstock, site of Blenheim Palace and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill in 1874. Relics of prehistoric and Roman habitation are preserved in different areas of the county.Click Here For a List of Links to Inns with Websites

The 18th Century Queens Head has had only four landlords since the second World War and the current friendly landlord has been in residence since 1983. The pub has been a regular in Camra's "Good Beer Guide" for years, even over three changes of brewery (Courage, Morlands and Greene King). Something that the Landlord takes great pride in. It is a testimony to the very high standard of beer served.

The Trout however, is blessed with a stunning location on the banks of the Thames.
