The River Thames has pubs which are tested daily by walkers ready for really good refreshment.
In today’s Mail on Sunday Tom Parker Bowles and Olly Smith publish their list of the 100 cosiest pubs in Britain.
Tom highlights The Trout Inn at Wolvercote, upstream of Oxford which he describes as “a beautiful 17th-century pub sitting on the Thames”.
He adds: “One of those pubs that is as cosy in winter as it is bucolic in summer.”
At Cricklade The Red Lion gets a mention for being “a 16th-century pub with a flower-strewn façade that brews its own beer”.
Indeed it is the home of Liquid Highway brewed exclusively for the Thames Path.
There is also bed and breakfast.
