Review on Falkland Arms
An archetypal Cotswold hostelry in an archetypal Oxfordshire village 5 miles from Chipping Norton, the Falkland Arms is a real treasure: the building itself is a creeper-clad sixteenth-century stone gem, with parts of the original thatch still intact.
Visitors marvel at its extraordinary interior – a time warp of beamed rooms filled with high-backed settles, flagstone floors, inglenooks and all manner of curios festooned around the place. The pub is famed for its real ales, cider and English country wines – and you can also buy snuff over the counter.
The kitchen naturally takes a traditional view of things, providing lunchtime sustenance in the form of soup, ploughman's, hand-raised pork pies, and local sausages with mash and cider gravy. Evening meals are only served in the separate dining room, where the menu advertises gastro pub offerings such as grilled goats' cheese with pesto croûtes, slow-cooked lamb shank with rosemary and garlic, poached fillet of smoked haddock with crushed new potatoes and a poached egg, plus desserts ranging from warm sticky toffee pudding to lemon and thyme crème brûlée.
