This friendly, family-run Italian restaurant makes it clear that Italians are passionate about being generous with friends and even strangers. La Fontana in East Hanley introduces customers to Italian hospitality and the country's flavour full, robust cooking styles and delicious wines.
The bright and cosy dining area, with dark brown wooden chairs, potted plants and beige walls dotted with paintings, is full with the chatter of happy diners. They serve a number of tasty specialties that capture the rich, robust flavours of Italy.
Begin your gastronomic journey with bresaola, dry cured beef; exotic frog legs in a chilli, garlic and tomato sauce or a simpler plate of smoked salmon. Pastas can be ordered as a starter or main course and could include homemade gnocchi with mozzarella cheese, spaghetti with bacon and egg; and prawn risotto. Specials consist of beef rolled with pine nuts, parsley and a hint of garlic, and fillet of sea bass with olive oil and lemon zest.
Fifteen striking, refurbished bedrooms are all ensuite.
Church Street, Ardington, Wantage, OX12 8QA [Map]
A homely, half-timbered little place with a reputation for good, straightforward pub food from a deceptively small menu which, probably because the dishes are cleverly chosen, seems to please everyone. A simple grilled spiced mackerel or poached egg salad with black pudding and bacon should get the meal well under way. I would be seriously tempted by the spiced rump of English lamb Nicoise; the roast Cornish monkfish, chickpeas with sun dried tomatoes or the stuffed fillet of sea bass with scallop mousse, followed by a banana and caramel tatin. And let me tell you, they know how to make a good cup of coffee there, and, they are not mean on the chocolate truffles. A sturdy little wine list with house wine by the glass or bottle. They also have an interesting bar menu, which is available all week, except Saturday night and Sunday lunch.
