Trading since 1784, The Turnpike proudly uses Cotswold Stone for its eye-catching slate roof, and serves traditional British pub cuisine in the Oxfordshire countryside. It boasts comfortable seating in the al fresco beer garden or by the classic hearth, and other rustic features include oak beams, old tankards and cosy candles.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Turnpike Yarnton menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Turnpike ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

While in the pretty countryside, The Turnpike, in Kidlington, is just 12 minutes' drive from Oxford.

    It was a very enjoyable experience thank you. Our table was booked for 12 noon and it would have been nice if we could have got in just a few minutes before to have a pre meal drink, however, the table we were given was ideal.
