Oxford eats | A country pub with style

I love the Spring time. The flowers and trees are blooming, the temperature increases (slightly!) and the sun shines. Everything just looks prettier. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a drive out into the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, and discover a new pub!

The Seven Stars pub is in the perfect location. Right in the middle of a village with lots of space and greenery to admire. I don’t live that far away, so I’d heard about the Seven Stars, however I’d never gotten round to going.

Good Friday seemed like the perfect opportunity to embrace the sunshine and get some good ol’ fish and chips, country style.

I was really surprised when I entered the Seven Stars because it was so fresh and modern inside, without losing it’s traditional pub feel. The decor was light and fresh pink flowers has been placed on every table.

We took a look at the lunch menu, knowing exactly what we wanted to order. There’s a nice variety of traditional pub food available – gutted I didn’t get to take a look at the dinner menu.

With a glass of ice cold rosé, I was already a very happy lady.

The food arrived and the portions were perfect. The fish had clearly been freshly cooked to order and tasted amazing. The chunky chips and mushy peas (which I’m not usually a fan of) were the perfect accompaniment.

I was pretty full after my meal, however the desserts just looked too good to pass up, especially their selection of chocolate brownies. Joe opted for the peanut butter chocolate brownie and I went for the dark chocolate.

The brownies were served warm with a little chocolate sauce, pieces of honeycomb and a gorgeous vanilla ice-cream (honestly, it was amazing!)

I am quite well known for making good brownies, but even I had to admit these beat my own. OMG it was the best brownie I’d ever eaten in a restaurant. I’m so glad I didn’t listen to my full stomach and decline dessert.

The service matched everything else – perfect. For a good price and happy faces (and stomachs), I will definitely be returning the Seven Stars for dinner.
