A sprint from London: a Cotswolds pub modernised with sympathy and care. Happy staff, top local ales, and set lunch a steal

The family behind the Ebrington Arms has renovated this 17th-century inn, around the corner from Blenheim Palace, to its former glory. Wood floors sweep from side bar to main bar to dining room, burners in brick fireplaces belt out heat and the set menu is a steal. Smiling staff ferry own-brewed Yubby Bitter, Goldie and Yawnie to locals, dog walkers and drinkers; the rest are here for the food: roast venison and faggot croquette with beetroot dauphinoise, kale and juniper; blackberry and frangipane tart. And the best chips in Oxfordshire! Sunday roasts are an unmissable indulgence. Famous for their real ales, the focus is on small brewers; wines showcase independent makers; there's a nifty selection of malt whiskies, or try a pint of their home-brewed in the big beer garden. Glorious.
