Zizzi’s or Nandos in Windsor or just head to the King and Castle pub as you walk up to the castle.

Lulu’s Ethiopian in Oxford.

Only grabbed sandwiches to go from a deli in Chipping Camden for a hike to the Broadway Tower.

A number of years ago we ate at the restaurant at the Lygon Arms hotel in Chipping Campden. It was fine. No idea what it’s like now.

Hi Yvette!

We love Chipping Campden and stayed several days there in April of 2019. Our accommodations were at the Lygon Arms and we had a tasty lunch there on our arrival day as well as an enjoyable dinner there one evening. We considered it to be our local pub on that trip. My wife still raves about the ham and cheese toastie she had at lunch.

Just down the street and around the corner from the Lygon Arms is Eight Bells Inn. It is a pub but I remember the focus being on the food and it was a wonderful dinner. The dining room was dimly lit and it was very crowded. Fantastic atmosphere.

Our favorite dinner was at a small pub just outside Chipping Campden called The Ebrington Arms. It was about a 10 minute drive if you don't count time lost having to turn around and retrace out route. They are very well regarded for their food and we still think back fondly on that dinner.

BTW - this is my first post. I was browsing topics and felt compelled to sign up and offer our experience. We love England and are currently planning a return this June. Back to the Cotswolds!

I hope this information is helpful.

Hey Johnny Boy,

Thanks for signing up and making recommendations. I have taken note of these for my personal files.

While I was in Oxford in 2017, a local recommended the Thai restaurant Chiang Mai Kitchen to me. I thought it was quite good, but I confess to not being an expert on Thai food. CMK's address is 130A High Street. As I recall, it's down a sort of alley; there was some sort of sign pointing the way--maybe a sandwich-board sort of thing. The seating area is up a flight of stairs. Don't expect the prices to be super cheap just because of the location.

In Oxford, I recommend the Turl Street Kitchen. This offers good food at a reasonable price in the very centre of the City. I have been there many times. Booking is advisable.

If you are looking for something with a bit of 1920s-ish atmosphere in Central Oxford there is the branch of The Ivy. Located in a former NatWest Bank the Hall has been renovated. If the fixed menu suits for lunch it is not that expensive.

If you are interested in C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, check out the Eagle and Child pub in Oxford. it was the regular drinking spot for the Inklings and is very atmospheric. Supposedly when Tolkien began reading them the rough draft of LOTR, one of the other members comment was, "Oh lord, not more F**king Elves!" Definitely a spot to enjoy a pint....

Try the Coconut Tree in Oxford. It’s Sri Lankan food, but served with explanation to us Westerners. Casually nice and welcoming. A fun experience.

Johnny Boy mentioned many restaurants in Chipping Campden.

I add another. We stayed at the Volunteer Inn and they have the best pub in town. ALSO, there is a great Indian restaurant there.
If you go to Bath, go to The Scallop Shell, they have the best fish and chips in England.

We had excellent Chinese food at The One on Botley Road in Oxford. As an aside, if you continue a bit further along Botley, just after the road crosses the Thames there are steps down to a small road (eventually a pedestrian walk) along the river. We often saw canal boats along the way.

Thank you! Based on these replies, I made reservations at the volunteer inn for a few nights. Thanks again! This community is very helpful!
