In the morning we had a lovely full english breakfast and were offered a hot drinks... More

Very welcoming and helpful. The room was compact but clean with all the facilities you needed. The bathroom was clean though the shower was lacking in power. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. I would stay again.

I would recommend the inn if you want a real ale pub with good food and a quiet nights sleep. We hope to return. My only criticism would be the quality of the baked beans at breakfast. The evening dinner was very enjoyable and the starter of melted goats cheese with pink peppercorns was one of the tastiest versions of... More

My partner and I stayed here in March as we were attending a friend's wedding in Oxfordshire. On approaching the Inn we were pleasantly surprised. However, unfortunately this feeling did not last. The owners were very unfriendly and we were made to feel very unwelcome and this would probably explain why the place was empty! We decided to stay for... More

I took friends for Sunday Lunch at the Inn at Emmington on February 16th. We were greeted by Jerry from behind the bar and enjoyed a quick drink before being shown to our table. Thereafter we enjoyed a 3 course lunch, the quality of which you would struggle to receive in rather more expensive restaurants elsewhere. Following starters, the beef... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we approached the Inn as its lovely. Was greeted with a smiley face and shown to our rooms. Very simple rooms but the bed was very very comfortable and we had access to free wifi and had freeview available on the tv. Tea and coffee available also. The gentleman in the bar was extremely helpful... More

We arranged to go to The Inn at Emmington for a couple of nights with friends to visit Oxford and for a walk in the Chilterns. The Inn at Emmington lies about 20 minutes outside Oxford but is an easy journey in. We arrived late afternoon on Friday after a stop start journey on the M25, M40. The rooms were... More

For just under £100 I stayed overnight, had a very good three course meal & a sound night's sleep. The rooms aren't up to much, reminded me of staying at an old aunt's house when I was younger, however I slept well, are well, the service was great

I had to stay here for work a few times. The beds are really really hard and you can hear the person in the next room snore and move around the room, clearly. Whatever they are doing you will hear it. Friendly people though and my first visit included a game of Aunt Sally in the garden.

We stopped here yesterday for sunday lunch with relatives without having been in before (under 10 mins from M40). We did book as there were eight of us but the restaurant was not busy. Loved the easy chairs and the book case. We'd expected the usual pork, lamb, turkey roast but the only 'typical' roast was the delicious roast beef... More
