Stayed here for two night with my husband.the room was ok but the bed seemed very small and was against a wall. The bathroom was on a mezzanine level.the building is very old but interesting being so old. We were at the back of the hotel so no road noise, but as soon as the first guests were up before...

After a long stroll around the Adderbury circular walk we decided that a bite to eat was in order. Many people at work had told me good things about the Red Lion so a visit was in order. We were quickly ushered in, sat down and promptly had a wonderful meal. The food was tasty, fresh and the service was... More

Visited here on a beautiful evening when the pub was very busy indeed.24 of us sat down, to a pre-ordered meal, which, after an initial wait while earlier choices were checked, came reasonably quickly. Everything was well organised, the food was ample and tasty and there were no complaints. Quite an achievement on a very busy night. Staff were friendly... More

We stayed for 2 nights recently in room 1 which was on the top floor. The room was quite small with not a lot of space around the bed but we managed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room nice and bright. The bathroom was a little disappointing as we both love a shower especially in the morning and... More

This is a pleasant country pub with rooms in a picturesque part of 'village' England. The staff are all extremely, friendly and couldn't be more helpful and the food at breakfast and in the evening, if you eat in their pleasant restaurant are excellent. Our superior room was simple and slightly disappointing, with a slightly less than comfortable bed. The... More

A welcoming small hotel, all the staff were very friendly.The Menu was varied and all our various choices were excellent. As it was an old coaching inn we were aware that the rooms would reflect the age of the building. We found our room although very clean a tad small for a four night stay. But our overall experience was... More

The room is fantastic. The bed is very comfy and my wife even found herself lounging in the big bath. The late check out means you can have a proper rest. The Inn is traditional with small rooms and wooden beams giving a lovely atmosphere. There is even an intriguing old well in the Carpark. The food was fantastic and... More

Very old (500 years plus) coaching inn in a pretty village very near to Banbury (famous for its Cross). Food good and plentiful and staff extremely helpful. This is an Old English Inn and their breakfasts are second to none.
