We booked here from Sunday to Tuesday starting off with a fabulously Sunday lunch. There's a relaxed feel when you walk in and the service is all you can wish for. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is the bathroom could do with updating. I would definitely stay here again.

Friendly welcome and nice meal in the evening, had to leave to early for breakfast so they made me a BLT to take with me, next time I will make sure I can try the breakfast as well. Room a little cold in the morning but an extra heater in the room soon sorted that out.

We needed somewhere to stay on our last night in the Witney area and my wife found this place. The Royal Oak has a great little bar and the barman is very friendly with bags of local knowledge. If you are new to this area then he can point you in the right direction for some must see sights. As... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our visit. Lovely rooms and we had an evening meal on one of the nights. We both had pies and they were very good indeed with really rich red wine gravy. When we dined out of the town we came back to the bar so we could have a drink. Breakfast was... More

Very pleasant stay at this BnB. Only 2 rooms available,so you'd need to book early, especially during the summer season. John is a friendly and helpful host. Our room was large with adequate storage. We were in the Cotswolds for 4 nights to attend a wedding and the large room was very welcome. The room was clean. There was always... More

My friend and I stayed here for a wedding and it was exactly what we needed. I didn't really know what to expect as I'd never been to Burford before but it's a gorgeous little village. We didn't eat at the hotel as we were going to a friends wedding but the service when we arrived was fantastic. It's also... More

Arrived a busy two days at RIAT and a warm welcome, room comfortable and nice and clean. Room at the back and nice and quiet. Hosts were very welcoming and a good cooked breakfast. The location and price both excellent so many thanks.

We had a great time at The Royal Oak. The inn and pub were both just what we were hoping for. Authentic. Just the experience we wanted. Please remember that staying in the Cotswolds is to enjoy the traditional English countryside, so it is not going to be the Ritz Carlton in the city. I think people confuse their wishes.... More
