The gastropub, which maintained its Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand for a second year for offering value for money, has also also been awarded the Editor’s Choice in the Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards 2013. The Quince Tree, on the site of the former Stonor Arms, opened in April 2012.

Business co-ordinator Amy Yardley said: “It was great news. Trade has been really good. In the first year we kept a lot of our marketing local, and our main client-base is in this area. But this year we have also noticed a lot of people coming from further afield.”

The pub was also nominated in the gastropub/brasserie category, together with the Plowden Arms in Shiplake.

Quince Tree owner Bobby Yerburgh said: “It is very exciting but, more importantly, it is recognition for all the hard work and dedication of all the team at The Quince Tree. We have had plenty of challenges both before and since we opened and they have all worked tirelessly.”

Head chef, Peter Eaton, who trained at the Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, has just written a new menu.

with starters from £7 to £11 and mains from £12 to £26 for steaks.
