The Pub is located on a main road , a little way out from Hook Norton village. A brisk walk gets you there in about 20 minutes (or a 2 minute car ride.) We were met on arrival by the friendly bar staff and shown to our twin room which was located in the rear courtyard, so no noise issues.... More

Lovely pub, be prepared to want to stay all day. Warm natural welcome not overwhelming from all staff and gorgeous resident dog. Always on the hunt for a good roast and this one is one of the best I've had. It's was fresh delicious, hot and lovely crispy roasts. It's pricey but good. Desert looked basic but it was also...

My friend and myself stayed over at this pub for a night as we were attending a relative's birthday on the following Sunday in nearby Chipping Norton. The staff at this pub could not be more welcoming or friendly and I have to agree that the food was excellent - both for dinner on the Saturday evening and at breakfast... More

Just got back in our motor home from a Great Bank Holiday on the campsite at the Gate Hangs High, Excellent food and a nice pint of Old Hooky. Made most welcome in the pub , even with our dogs and the lovely pub dog Sky greeted us each evening . We'll be back .

Stopped here overnight with friends, 2 couples. Staff and owner very friendly, couldn't do enough for you. Food very tasty, would recommend anything off the menu really, we all had 3 course and all of the plates were well presented, tasty and well cooked. The room was quite spacious and located in a courtyard out of the back of the... More

Great location as it was central to where we wanted to visit on the Saturday and Sunday. Food was excellent and service was good. The room was of a good size but bed a bit too uncomfortable for us. Would definately stay here again.

Visited this pub and stayed for one night over Valentine's weekend and it was perfect. The rooms are at the back of the pub in the courtyard and were very cosy, clean and quiet. The bathroom could do with updating but we didn't go away to sit in a bathroom so it didn't bother us at all. The country pub... More

The chef is one of the best in the area - do yourself a favour and have something off the specials menu rather than a sandwich. Really worth the extra and the foos is really good. Loads of parking, great pub garden.

We visited as a family group with two caravans, as a pre-Christmas get together, staying in the small site to the rear. Pitching is not easy due to the slope in both directions but we managed it! We did not eat in the pub but visited twice, sampling all the Hook Norton beers on both occasions. The beers were all... More

We've eaten at this lovely country pub a few times in the past, and were lucky enough to get the last table of four for Christmas Lunch this year. The food was plentiful, delicious, and served piping hot on plates hot enough to warrant a warning from the server. In past (with other management), we have had amazing roast dinners... More
