You're going to be in "Donnington Brewery" territory, - this link may be useful: http://www.donnington-brewery.com/pubs.php

There are loads of pubs in Moreton in Marsh which is very near, - most used by locals, and good for food. (also in Stow on the Wold) Village wise, would recommend The Horse & Groom at Bourton on the Hill for nice food, (although maybe not necessary for traditional "pub grub" - The Eight Bells in Chipping Campden is brilliant for experiencing the "locals" thing, - food exceptionally good too! - would also recommend if youre out and about, - The Plough Inn (Ford), The Bakers Arms in Broad Campden. - and for a 100% "locals" thing combined with great cooking The Plough Inn at Stretton on Fosse (just down from Moreton in Marsh into Warwickshire slightly) a tiny little place but full of charm!

If youre a fan of Lord of The Rings, - you mustn't miss The Bell in Moreton in Marsh.

- To be honest, the area is generously scattered with wonderful pubs which is one of the reasons I live here!

In my view overwhelmingly the best eating place within 15 miles is the Kingham Plough (www.thekinghamplough.co.uk)

Then the Churchill arms at Paxford. I'm fond of the Chequers at Chipping Norton, which you'll more or less pass on the way from and to London. Hardly refined eating - but it's a proper boozer with tasty, if a bit overambitious, food and nice staff.

There's no point getting snobbish about "where locals eat". Most people who've lived in the area all their lives rarely eat out at all, and when they do it'll be an Indian in a town or a carvery somewhere. Recent (ie in the past 20 years) incomers don't eat out that much either: the bulk of demand for eating in pubs within 20 miles of Longborough comes from weekenders or genuine tourists.

The Churchiil Arms at Paxford is very expensive and we've never been there when the service wasn't terrible... Likewise we think all pubs in Moreton are to be avoided for food (and we used to live in Moreton...).

Don't forget the Longborough farm shop - not open in the evening, but on the top of the hill, interesting prduce, nice cafe with tables outside at the back wth a great view. You an take a lovely walk from behind there too.

Horse and Groom & 8 Bells are excellent as is the Kings' Head at Bledington.

Isn't there an old fashioned, locals boozer on the main road that goes past Longborough from Stow?

Moreton pubs are best avoided for food.

A bit further afield try the Royal Oak (Ronnie's) in Whatcote for Sunday lunch. That's a real country pub.
