Sir Charles Napier: Michelin Star Lunch in Oxfordshire

The boy and I wanted to escape the craziness of London for a change so we decided to head for Sunday lunch somewhere in the beautiful English countryside. Sir Charles Napier is a very cozy, and yes a bit posh, gastropub in a beautiful area of Oxfordshire surrounded by green hills with only a few houses around. The only way to get there is by following a very narrow road by car but once you get there it`s definitely worth the drive and the views are amazing.
The food was lovely although the portions were quite small and definitely more on the pricey side even for a one Michelin Star restaurant. I recommend going for all 3 courses otherwise you probably won`t feel full by the end of the meal.
We started off with rabbit ravioli which was beautiful and one of the best raviolis I`ve had. Very delicate with beautiful flavours, I could have had 5 more of these. A must to try if you`re going there!

Onto the mains, the boy had the chicken which was very tender and beautifully cooked. We were pleasantly surprised by this as ordering chicken in a restaurant can sometimes be a bit disappointing.

My main was fish with morels,  artichokes, and white beans. All the ingredients complemented each other really well and I pretty much cleaned the plate in 2 minutes. :)

The desserts were my favourites of the whole meal, really one of the best desserts I`ve had since coming back from Australia. We got two of them to share: banana parfait with pecan praline, rum and raisins (out of this world delicious!), and the salted caramel with chocolate and peanut terrine which was beautiful as well. It took me a lot of control to wait to take pictures before diving right into them.

If you`re looking for a gourmet getaway not too far from London I definitely recommend you give a try to this wonderful pub.
