Tasting the New Spring Menu at The Perch, Oxford

Tasting the New Spring Menu at The Perch, Oxford

Set amongst the meadows of Binsey, The Perch is a quintessentially British gastropub, that has beautifully preserved it’s 17th century heritage. It’s traditional thatched roof, with smoke bellowing from the chimney is charming. There’s a rustic feel, as the log fire burns, making it all rather cosy. The Perch’s new Spring Menu is worth venturing out for and it’s clearly popular amongst locals, with a full house mid week.

The Butchers Board starter was a hearty platter exploding with smoked goose, home corned beef, Kelmscott salami, country pork pate,and served with a warm, rustic, homemade bread.

The meaty Chargrilled 8oz Burger,came fully loaded with farmhouse cheddar, bacon & tomato relish. Triple cooked chips are a guilty pleasure that we can never resist and were cooked to perfection.

One cannot visit a pub without trying their homemade dessert, especially when there is crumble on the menu. Even if it means loosening a belt, or popping a button, it is well worth it. This was no ordinary crumble. The Binsey Apple & Ginger crumble was fragrant and heart warming. The unique ginger and apple combination was unusual yet complementary. This is a dessert we will be back for.
