Fishes (The)

North Hinksey Village, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX2 0NA
Find this good and deservedly-popular gastro-pub set in 3 acres of wooded grounds leading down to the Seacourt Stream.

Although still a local, selling real ales, the reason most customers visit is because of the good food on offer. While the menu's follow the seasons, a late Spring version included 'Grilled Halloumi, Artichoke, Spring Green & Olive Salad, Shallot & Balsamic Dressing'; 'Whole Tiger Prawns, Garlic & Parsley Butter, Milwaukee Rye'; 'Cornish Sardines on Toast, Tomato Salsa, Watercress & Pea Shoot Salad' and 'Caesar Salad, Anchovies, Free-Range Chicken & Bacon' among the starters.

Some, such as the last two, are also offered in main course helpings.

Dishes such as 'Char-grilled 28 day-aged Aberdeen Rump or Sirloin with Chips, Charcutier Sauce or Café de Paris Butter'; 'Free-range Sausage & Mash'; 'Organic Salmon & Spring Onion Fishcake, Mixed Leaves, Lemon Crème Fraiche' and 'Pan-Fried Sea Bass Fillet, Marinated Potato, Green Bean, Orange & Almond Salad' typified the mains.

Desserts, such as 'Apple & Cinnamon Bavarois, Apple Crisp'; 'Crème Brulée' and 'Chocolate & Coffee Mousse with Biscotti' might be too tempting to resist.

For those not wanted a fully meal, a Bar Menu offers filled Ciabatta's, Club Sandwiches and the like.

They have won National awards for their Sunday lunches – so expect this service to be particularly popular.

In far weather, you can eat in their riverside garden.
