Gonna do an oil change today as the previous owner said she'd not done one and had done 4K.

What oil is best to use / recommended?

Oh dear - this always starts an argument!

I would say a good 15/40 Multigrade - eg Quantum, Fuchs, Castrol, Duckhams.

If the engine is worn and uses a lot of oil, try a good 20/50.

Some will swear by cheap multigrade, some will insist it has to be straight SAE 30. I'm not saying they are wrong, just telling you what I use!

I`ve just started using Morris 15 w50 Multivis in my 1600 bug, recommended for older engines, and seems really good so far. Usually after long road trips and a good thrashing the engine sounds like a bag of nails as the oil got very thin, with this it still sounded pretty sweet. :)
