Review of Cherwell Boathouse, Oxford

Cherwell Boathouse

The Verdin family set up shop at the Cherwell Boathouse almost 40 years ago and their long-serving riverside venue in Oxford continues to go from strength to strength. In recent times it's undergone something of a renaissance, with a brightly lit conservatory now tacked onto the original premises – although most people are still drawn to the glorious terrace by the banks of the Cherwell as well as the prospect of punting.

The kitchen shows off its English allegiance with dishes such as mallard duck breast and pheasant terrine or rump of salt marsh lamb with parsnip, salsify and potato purée, although French influences are never far away. Saffron-marinated scallops might be served with crushed celeriac and balsamic jus, roast free-range chicken comes with herb potatoes, wilted spinach and morel sauce, while desserts span everything from chocolate rice pudding to cherry soup with rose sorbet.

The wine list is a rare treat for anyone visiting the Boathouse: there are pages of pedigree selections spanning the globe, mouth-watering possibilities from the French regions and ample choice by the glass.
