"The Eagle is no ordinary local" so expect "accomplished cooking" and "excellent local produce" in a "revamped village inn", says The AA Restaurant Guide 2014.
Why we love it
- You pay less than £20 a head for a 3-course dinner and bubbly
- The Eagle Tavern in rural Oxfordshire comes recommended -- it has a 4-star rating from VisitEngland, two AA Rosettes from the AA and a mention in the Michelin Guide 2014
- Marcel Nerpas is a "knock-out French chef whose food could charm the birds out of the trees" -- The Oxford Times
Lunch or dinner, Tue-Sat until 31 Mar, 2014; not available 10-28 and 31 Dec.
