We had a fabulous sunday lunch last time we visited the gate hangs high, we were very impressed and gave a great revue.......... BUT this time it wasn't even half as good. Yorkshire puddings solid as a rock, over cooked veg were the low lights. meat was cold. The Starter of prawns in garlic butter was a very disappointing quantity... More

Despite 26 of us invading the pub to eat - when i had only estimated 12-16 and all arriving with 20 minutes of each other - it was the usual lovely warm friendly welcome, delicious food and cosy festive atmosphere. Well done to the team - see you again soon!

Lovely pub, we arrived late but they were fine and even asked if we had eaten which was sweet. The bedroom was lovely and spacious, my partner and I had the best nights sleep ever! Breakfast was amazing. We will definitely be staying again!

I picked this pub at random to debug our new caravan. Being November It was wet and windy and the slope on the boggy field was a challenge, but overall we had no problems. As for the pub itself it's one of the friendliest, best food and beer pubs I've ever been to - and I've been to a few.... More

We have used this pub a number of times whilst on our way to Spain by car. It is very pet friendly and offers a satisfying breakfast. The evening meals are generous and tasty. The rooms are a bit dated but OK. Nice friendly staff.

Good selection of food, especially the fish specials. Large starters - ended up sharing the potato skins between 3!! Disappointing that although we booked for Sunday lunch a few days before for 12 people they had run out of beef as they had another large party prior to ours (but they were also aware of their visit several days before)....

The caravan site didn't fill us with hope at first. How does a field run downhill in 3 directions at the same time? However the pub & restaurant has redeemed the situation. Ten guests ordered a good variety of starters and mains from the standard menu and the specials board. The food quality was very good as were the quantities.... More

Spent 2 very comfortable nights here; glad the room was in the annexe out back as the road oout front seems busy and noisy. Staff were very welcoming (including the lovely dog!) the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast very prompt and delicious. We ate dinner here both nights and were delighted with our meals on both occasions. We will... More

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
