We met some friends today and decided we would have a nice lunch. We all decided to go for a baguette p, 2 portions of chips and a side of garlic bread. We ordered and paid and went to sit outside. The waitress came out with our cutlery to then tell us that they only had 2 baguettes left would... More

Second attempt to eat here. Recommended by a local. Though now wish I had wifi to read the reviews. Tried to eat here before but they were having a balti night and wouldn't serve anything from the normal menu so we ended up at the Jolly Boatman. This time it was the normal (tatty, laminated) menu. I had fish in... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at The Highwayman, as was the case some 2 years ago some of the reviews were very bad. We specifically asked for the same room as before [room 1 downstairs] which appeared to be in good condition and as such we have no adverse comments. Obviously, with a downstairs... More

I hate giving this a poor review as most of the staff seem lovely, especially who I assume to be the manager/owner who greeted us, showed us to our room etc. The room was very, very tired for a start, we asked for a double room but were given a twin room, we were only staying for one night though...

This seemed a great place for me to stay for business - close to work, cheap, and with a pub downstairs so easy access to food. And it could have been good, but the room was awful. Aside from the terrible decor (which I'm not marking it down for), the bed was extremely uncomfortable (like a 10 year old cheap... More

Not an easy one to sum up this place, some staff were great why others could not be bothered, cleaning was lack in place and service varied due to staff. Breakfast plentiful and ok, the food was nothing special but was good enough for daily fare. The thing is this place could be great and I guess that falls to... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Oxford. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and well equipped, some may think them slightly dated but I felt this helped retain the historical character of the pub.The pub is lovely, breakfast and evening meals were excellent, especially the curry. The staff were very helpful. It is a delightful setting next to... More

We stayed here for one night in order to visit Oxford. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's got really pretty surroundings with a Canal and a few chickens and ducks roaming around. There is free parking and also a little caravan park next to the pub/hotel. We went into Oxford which cost us £15 there and £20 back... More

The welcome we received at The Highwayman was lovely. Very friendly staff. The room was clean, the shower very good, beds very comfortable. We have two not so goods:- If you don't like Indian food, you have to eat very early in the evening. We were offered English food but only as we were being seated for an Indian meal.... More
