Move over Worrall-Thompson

Celebrity chef Antony Worrall-Thompson may know a thing or two about cooking steaks and indeed, his Windsor Grill restaurant offers (mostly) good food at a price… but watch out, the local pub is sneaking up behind and is setting new standards in cuisine.

Situated in the picturesque Buckinghamshire village of Taplow not far from Windsor, is former spit & sawdust pub The Oak & Saw. This establishment was taken over by Karen & Ian about five years ago and what a great job they have done in transforming it into the “foodies” paradise we now behold. Whether you are just dropping in for a quick drink or are planning to have a meal, you can always expect a warm and friendly welcome and a place where you can relax and get away from the stresses and strains of daily life.

The food is somewhere between traditional English and modern European, but there’s no way you can pigeon-hole it. My personal favourite is the fillet steak, cooked to perfection and exactly to your requirements by their in-house chef affectionately known as Boris. The food at The Oak & Saw is unpretentious, reasonably priced, very high quality and is easily streets ahead of other restaurants, including AWT’s Windsor Grill.

But what of the pub? The Oak & Saw carries a good selection of real ales, lagers and wines and I find the Argentinian Malbec a perfect accompaniment to my steak. The staff are very accommodating and helpful; if you want to vary your meal that’s never a problem and it’s always served with a smile by the bubbly Tracey.

Summing up,  The Oak & Saw is one of the most under-stated treasures of the Thames Valley and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

So all you regular readers of my blog must be thinking, “where’s the photography element in this post?” Well, it’s this – I’m giving one of my favourite eateries some “exposure”!!
