Visited with my wife, son and his fiance for a meal and to check out before booking for an evening do. Seemed okay on the preliminary visit, and we took photos of the occasion, but when we returned we were refused food just after 8 pm despite 6 of us having sat at a table, looked at the menu, and...

Terrible food - a real shame as this place used to be such a gem. Our food tasted like it was all microwaved and the vegetables were like something from 1970's school food. The service was fine, but the whole experience was very disappointing and something that we will be telling our friends to avoid. Go the The Black Boy... More

We spent the afternoon at the talk house with friends and decided to eat.the pub was busy so we thought there would be a delay on food but it was within time which is a surprise when the place was rammed. The food was absolutely delicious and well worth the money.at the end of our meal the manager spoke to... More

I recently attended a wedding where the evening function was based at The Talkhouse, set in an excellent location featuring a great character building- shame this was all ruined as soon as you meet the owners and staff, not greeted by an outstanding service unfortunately graced with an exceptionally abrupt and poor service ruining the whole experience. The staff and... More

I stayed in this pub with my fiancé on a Saturday night, half hour in to our stay there was a power cut that did not relent until after we left! There was no apology or offer of compensation/refund for our troubles! This in itself is not the issue, the main issue arose when being charged for my stay and... More

I chose the Talkhouse due to it's very convenient location to where I was working in Marston. On arrival I was shown to my room which was clean and well appointed. Unfortunately the WiFi doesn't cover the bedrooms - a roaring log fire in the bar was a much better option anyway! Dinner in the restaurant was served quickly with... More

The TalkHouse is a fantastic pub. The food is great, the drink selection is brilliant and the staff are lovely. Open fire makes it even more cosy! 100% recommend to all. The owners are very welcoming and the bar staff are very inviting. Thank you and well done :)

Very good value - rooms are in a converted stable block at the back of the courtyard. We had a comfortable couple of nights. The bathrooms are in the process of being renovated but everything was very clean. The pub is delightful and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. Will definitely use again - it's a short... More

These are nice comfy en suite cabins behind a really nice country pub with a garden which also serves great food. Great for a one or two night stay and handy access for Oxford. Staff are also friendly and welcoming. Loses a point though for the bathroom - althtough very clean there were water marks and the ceiling was in... More

We organised the wake for my sister at the Talkhouse. John was so helpful and put on a really good lunch. Nothing was too much trouble and he did exactly what I asked. On the day everything went to plan and all our guests were very complimentary.
