Have eaten here a couple of times now and on both occasions, I have to say the food was very good indeed. I can, in particular recommend the ploughman's lunch, which I feel is good value and worth adding the gammon for very little extra! The Sunday lunch was also very tasty, well presented with the cheese board excellent and... More

The menu looked great well presented. We both had a starter, Hubby had Ham Hock Terrine and I had Smoked Mackerel on a bed of beetrout -... More

My wife, myself and also three friends had heard “good things “about The Sun, so we decided to see for ourselves. We went last Tuesday 15th in the evening and decided to have a two course meal each. We could only describe the food as being excellent, all five of us had no complaints what so ever and all washed... More

Having recently been refurbished the interior is as you would expect from a bistro pub ....typical fashionable paint scheme and shabby chic interior. This is very pleasant and comfortable but it has lost some of the charm and individualism that you would expect from Hook Norton. The food is tasty but the portions are far too small. The males in...

We have just returned to our home in Oxford having had lunch at the SUN. My wife and I arranged to meet our daughter, son in law and three of their children at the SUN after they had been for a long walk near Hook Norton. The exterior is not very prepossessing, but the inside has been completely refurbished and... More

As well as being locals and often having eaten here, we had our engagement party in the function room last month. It was a beautiful occasion thanks to the attentive service and gorgeous food. We had a wonderful night with plenty to eat and a lovely selection of wines at the bar. The chef is the best around- the best... More

Stayed here whilst visiting the well known local brewery. Two nights beginning of August 2014. very friendly staff, food was good and the rooms were clean. A good 4 out if 5. Any moans are tiny so enjoy your stay. The locals like dogs, plenty of walks if you like that. Bus stop right outside too.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Nice room right opposite the church. Nice size room, bathroom recently refurbished . Had a lovely meal in the bar . The food here is recommended all vegetables freshly sourced. Excellent location and Hook Norton real ales.
