Discover, Buscot Park, a magnificent stately mansion and intimate family home

Part owed by the National Trust and part owned by Lord Faringdon, Buscot House in Oxfordshire has fabulous grounds to explore across the seasons. The gardens are split into very different areas - a particular favourite with horticultural fans is the walled garden with its pleached hop hornbeam central avenue with a fountain and surrounding quadrants planted up to reflect the four seasons. We love the glorious Italian style Peto Water Gardens leading down to the lake – stunning on a summer’s day with its wealth of trees. Don’t miss the Swinging Garden (with swings for adults – a nice little quirky surprise) and the lovely Citrus Garden. Wander down a variety of avenues - they vary in style from formal to natural – and then head to the tea rooms for afternoon cakes and refreshment.

Buscot Park also has a Historic House:

Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurants in Oxfordshire by Adrian Mourby

"Recently, in a rather splendid hotel restaurant in Italy, I asked for the vegetarian option. I am not a vegetarian but I rarely eat meat because my wife is, and she does the cooking at home. I’m happy to eat fish, but at this hotel fish was a €15 surcharge. What came to the table - after what I imagine was inelegant rummage in the kitchen - was a plate of sautéed peppers and mushrooms topped with a fried egg. I was disappointed. I suppose I’m used to more thought being put into vegetarian dishes, certainly in the land that invented pasta and risotto.

It wasn’t always the case in Britain. When I married my first wife (back in the 1980s) she was a vegetarian and was often given a lame salad of lettuce, cucumber and tomato as a main course while the rest of us tucked into roast beef or lamb.

By the time my second wife began eschewing meat (in the early 2000s) British restaurants had become much more veggie-friendly. I showed solidarity as far as I could by giving up meat -anything with eyelashes stays alive in our house- and I’ve come to enjoy being meat-free. But I still consume fish and seafood. These are flavours that I wouldn’t want to lose, so that means that when we go out to eat we need a restaurant that looks after vegetarians and pescatarians equally well.

Neither of us wanted to find ourselves only eating in vegetarian restaurants – there are so few around - so I’ve started drawing up a list of vegetarian-friendly restaurants near us in Oxfordshire where we live. My idea of a veggie-friendly restaurant is one where omnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and even vegans can all eat together and not be disappointed by the choices. There are enough people in each dining camp that it’s worthwhile for restaurants to appeal to a variety of diets. I have had some great vegan dishes at restaurants that also do a splendid steak tartare. As Mrs Thatcher famously remarked all those years ago, what people want is choice.

So here are my ten top vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Oxfordshire. Wherever you live, I encourage you to find yours."
