The Malet, Newton Tony. Have the burger, rare. It’s not like other burgers, but I’ve been eating them for 20+ years and keep going back! Noel, the landlord, is also involved with local deer farming, so if there’s venison on the menu, it’s always excellent. Bit out of the city, but worth the trip.
The Wyndham Arms, for a pint or seven of the mighty, mighty Hopback.
Haunch of Venison for a bit of a historical visit.
Not pub suggestions,
Anokaa, in Fisherton Street. Just up the road from a rather excellent bike shop, is great for a modern take on curry.
Coffee Culture, opposite the aforementioned bike shop. Really good coffee, tasty sarnies and good cake.
Reeves the Baker. A city institution. Cheese straws all round!
