But why do people feel that it is ok to sit fully across the bar and block all access? Stops people being even close to being able to order a beer. Sadly the garden was closed but we sat by the canal and watched the barges chug by. Might have got bitten.

We went to visit the canal shop in Aynho so parked in the Great Western Arms pub carpark planning to nip next door to the Narrow Boats shop and enquire about canal boating next summer. However, we felt self- conscious parking at the pub without being a customer so we decided to validate our visit and ventured in for a... More

This is my second stay at the Great Western Arms, and it lived up to expectations. The room was comfortable and warm. Food and service in the evening was excellent and the breakfast? What can I say other than superb, lots of choices, a very cheerful and helpful waitress. No complaints and no doubt will be staying again in the... More

We visited the Great Western for lunch with friends having not been for a year or so. It is a lovely old rustic inn set by a canal which is usually very popular and has a good atmosphere. There is a very good menu choice and the standard of food is very good.

we booked the Great Western Arms which looked lovely for a romantic much needed night away. Our "deluxe" room number 1 was next to the kitchen. It was so noisy from the moment we got there 7pm it sounded as if we were in the kitchen! We spoke to a member of staff who assured us there would be peace... More

We called in for lunch without a reservation. The staff very welcoming and although the restaurant was busy a table was found straightaway. Food was delicious and piping hot. (The chips were amazing). Try the Pheasant Pie, absolutely full to the pastry top with meat and so tender. We will call in again.
