The Blowing Stone, Kingston Lisle - Now closed during Covid19 3rd wave

on Fri, 11/12/2015 - 9:09am

The Blowing Stone in Kingston Lisle has new owners and reopened in December 2020, but is currently closed, during the Covid 3rd wave.

To our loyal customers,
First of all we want to say thank you very much for all your support since our re-opening at the beginning of December. Unfortunately due to the current lockdown we are having to shut our doors for the time being due to our take away business being unpredictable and not sustainable. We are going to weather this storm with our doors shut and we hope to see you all soon.
Thank you once again,
The Blowing Stone Inn Team.


Contact details:


The Blowing Stone Inn is a comfy country Pub and Restaurant with letting rooms, set in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Kingston Lisle, near Wantage and surrounded by stunning countryside steeped in history.

Offering a warm welcome, freshly prepared food, fine cask ales and quality wines.

We are a small family team with a drive to provide a local pub for villagers and a destination for people of the wider local area. We have taken the time to refurbish this wonderful building creating the perfect setting to enjoy either a simple pint of our delicious selection of beers with a scrummy bar snack or a full 3 course meal to suit all occasions.

Our food is very important indeed and we are very lucky and proud to have added Chef Valentine Molokwu to our team. Having worked both at home here in the UK and abroad he has a breadth of knowledge learning from a number of high-end establishments. One of the highlights being Head Chef at the Brompton Club, a private members club in South Kensington. Having lived in Norway for a number of years he thoroughly enjoyed learning about the cuisine and broadening his horizons. Now he’s excited to bring his tasty eats to rural Oxfordshire utilising seasonal and local produce.

Children are welcome to eat with their parents, either in the bar or the restaurant. Dogs are welcome in the bar.
