Lunch in a country pub | The Small Desk

On Saturday me and the boyf headed up to his hometown of Banbury to see his parents. The train ride from London to Banbury is only an hour and, as long as you get your tickets early, it is very affordable. I always like to see his parents before Christmas so that we can exchange gifts plus their home is really Christmassy with a perfectly dressed tree. This time they decided to take us out to one of the oldest pubs in the country in Oxfordshire. It's called The Falkland Arms and dates back to the sixteenth century. It is situated in a really quaint little village where all the houses have that classic Cotswold stone. Here are some photos from our lunch and around the village. I had a lovely day and we even visited a local brewery too. Hope you like the photos, sorry they were just taken with my iPhone as I forgot my camera.



  1. I had to have a quick Google to work out where Banbury actually was (I'm super far up North), is that bad? haha
    Sounds like you guys had a lovely time away, I don't drink but love old little country pubs - just look how amazing the outside of the building looks. I could live there!
    I couldn't even tell the photos had been taken on your phone either by the way.

    Best wishes, Danielle xo

    1. Haha, I didn't know where it was until I met my boyf almost 7 years ago now! Thank you for reading :) x

  2. Mmm I haven't had a good fish and chips in ages! You just can't get it here in Belgium. There's a really nice pub here that does good Belgian food that the bf and I have been mean to go together.

    I love that first photo!

    1. I didn't realise you were in Belgium! Well at least you can get the best chocolate! Thanks for reading x
