Owned by some friends of ours, this relaxed pub in the heart of the village is lovely just to pop in for a drink at, especially in the Summer where they have lots of tables outside, or to sit fireside in the winter. Great food and wine.

Owned by some American friends, Jess and Andrew, this place sells delicious and hearty salads, savoury tray bakes and slow cooked meats that save you heaps of time when you'd like a special dinner for yourselves or with friends but don't want to cook. Their cookies are amazing too and they stock lots of Italian and American ingredients as well as fresh flowers.

This is such a new little gem in the heart of Moreton-in-Marsh. Walk thought the door and it appears that it's just a lovely wine shop but go in further and you will find a bar serving wines by the glass, a little courtyard garden with outdoor heaters and a room with a lovely long dining table as well as little tables dotted about the place. You can enjoy wines by the glass and a platter of deicious local cheeses and cured meats as well as some specials including my favourite - Potted Shrimp on toast. The whole thing is just YUM!
