A proper country pub in Henley-on-Thames, The Crooked Billet is a far cry from gastro chains, it’s rustic, made up of lots of little rooms and has charm by the bucket load. One thing we’re sure of, it serves (probably) the best Yorkshire puddings in the area.

Possibly the cosiest dining room and lounge area in the centre of the Capital, visiting The Grazing Goat’s roaring fireplace is a must-do during the colder months. Expect traditional English food with a welcome Mediterranean and French influence.

The Crown Hotel is an old coaching inn where parts of Four Weddings And a Funeral were filmed. Since its screen debut back in the ‘90s it’s been done up by interior designer Ilse Crawford, who’s famed for the likes of Stockholm’s Ett Hem. You can get there on the Metropolitan line making it perfect for a weekend escape from London.

The patron saint of cosy London pubs, the Dickensian Holly Bush has it all: a gorgeous, tucked-away location, the nicest fires this side of Narnia, and incredible pub food. Getting in can be a bun fight, but it’s the perfect place to cozy up for an Autumn afternoon. Fun fact: it’s opposite where Jamie Oliver used to live when he started out as The Naked Chef. It’s rumoured punters used to bang on his door to request bacon sandwiches after close. Yep, he moved shortly after…
