Friends old and new were at The Ox House Wine Bar in Northleach to commemorate the retirement of long-standing inn-keeper Roger Finlay and celebrate his cheerfully idiosyncratic tenure. It was in the mid-nineties that Mr Finlay set up the bar with Mark and Annabel Savage of Savage Selection and from its quiet beginnings it has grown into a favoured watering hole of the county, while also supplying wines to hotels and restaurants throughout the country. Roger Finlay is moving to Shrewsbury but threatens to return with frequency.
