Gastro Pub in North Hinksey - The Fishes


Peach is a collection of really great pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England. The Fishes is an imposing Victorian building set in acres of wooded grounds leading down to the banks of Seacourt Stream. As a quality gastropub, we serve great ingredients and fresh, honest food in relaxed, welcoming surroundings, always with a kind word and a sense of fun. Today we have twenty two pubs in lovely towns and villages, and an undimmed devotion to Making life Peachy. We have always been passionate about giving back and as we’ve developed and grown over the years, our ability and motivation to make the world a little better, a little peachier, has grown with us. The Bigger Peach shows our efforts to improve communities, equality in the workplace, and the future sustainability of our world. Our achievements were recognised in 2022, when we won Best Sustainable Pub Company at the Publican Awards, and we’re also three star accredited by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. 

Soak up the sun, atmosphere and beautiful views from the deck whilst enjoying a bite to eat, a cocktail, or a glass of award-winning wine from our drinks list. We serve food all day and children are welcome to enjoy smaller portions of any of our dishes, or ask to see our children’s menu. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. We’re dog friendly in our bar and outdoor areas, bring your furry friend and stop by soon. On our bar you’ll find a great range of spirits, beers and softs, so whether you pop in for a drink, a business lunch or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. Find us here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Fishes Team

Laura Cottrell, General Manager

A Lincolnshire ‘Yellowbelly’, Laura now currently lives in Witney with her family, including her husband who is head chef at on of our sister pubs, The Fleece. Laura started her career with Peach at The Fleece as a member of the team, before moving over to The Fishes where she worked her way up to become General Manager.

When not in the pub, you can find Laura out on a Sunday morning coaching the Witney Wasps rugby team and watching her own sons play rugby after. Laura comes from a music loving family and gets out to as many gigs as she can with her family, Biffy Clyro being her favourite. When not on the pitch or at a music venue Laura loves to spend her time with her family in Cornwall, including getting fish and chips from the famous Rick Stein in Padstow, a family tradition of hers.

Laura’s goal is to make The Fishes the best pub it can be. Stop by and say hello soon!

Roger Hayward, Head Chef

Roger grew up in Sudbury, a small town in the Derbyshire Dales. Aged nine, Roger discovered his love for cooking, spending weekends getting creative in the kitchen with his family. From that point on, Roger knew he was destined for a career in the kitchen. Since then, Roger has progressed very successfully as a Chef and says one of his biggest career highlights was working in the kitchens at the 2012 London Olympics. Since then, Roger has settled very well within Peach. He loves how invested Peach are in their teams both front and back of house, and sees the company as a great way to progress his career even further.

On his days off, you’ll find Roger spending quality time with his kids who are both big foodies and love to help out in the kitchen. Sounds like we’ve got future Peach chefs in the making!

Sian Lewis, POD Director

Hospitality, and making sure everyone is really well looked after, are in Sian’s genes. From helping her grandfather run the family B&B in the glorious Pembrokeshire countryside where she grew up to studying travel and tourism at Pembrokeshire College. She moved on to manage the two Rosette restaurant at The Maynard, a beautiful boutique hotel in the Peak District National Park, and laying on fantastic foodie events.

Her next home was The Ferry Inn, a fine watering hole, and then its lovely sister pub The Boar’s Head in Narbeth, offering good food and hospitality in equal measure. When it was time for a change, Sian went to Hampshire to become deputy at our own sister pub The Chequers in Eversley Cross, quickly helping this gorgeous village local make its mark, before taking on The Duke of Wellington to make it the best for miles around. Acorn Award winner, Sian, has now been appointed from General Manager to Pod Director for our Surrey and Oxfordshire pubs.
