Cothill is about a mile down Honeybottom Lane, or through Dry Sandford 
from Wootton, which is the nearest settlement of any size. The Merry 
Miller has a huge car park and on the inside seems to be all recently 
redone exposed but not varnished wood and rafters.

The choice of beer was Marstons Pedigree, Greene King IPA or Abbot Ale, so 
I wouldn't intend coming here if you're only having a drink. No.

But the food. Ooh. Good soups for a starter, excellent duck, fine lump of 
cow in peppery sauce. I was at a loss for which main course to have, and 
rather hoping that the waitress would tell me that X, Y, Z and J all had 
peanuts in them, but none of the dishes contain nuts apart from one of the 
crumbles. The manager and one of the waitresses are both your actual 

And an absolutely glorious summer pudding. It's rare that I have a good 
dessert when I'm eating out, but this was. Yes. What a shame it's so 
inaccessible. (7.vii.1999)
