We stayed for 1 night at this lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Room 5. The room was spacious with beautiful decor. The bathroom was large with nice fittings. We ate in the restaurant, the service was excellent as was the food. Breakfast was very nice and again the staff and service was good.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying there. We had room 5 which was fantastic and had dinner and breakfast both of which were very good. Great wine selection and very pleasant staff. I would definitely recommend. The room is the old pub landlords quarters so has its own entry behind the bar and the bed is very comfortable. Nice little touches like proper... More

Stayed here last weekend for one night and just loved it. We wanted a short break from London and it couldn't have been a more perfect choice. Situated in a beautiful village surrounded by thatched cottages, a duck pond and a choice of local walks, yet only a few miles from Oxford. We drove to the nearby park and ride... More

We stayed for one night in room 8 which is a family room in the old part of the building. The place generally and certainly the old part has lots of character with exposed beams and low ceilings etc. Our room which was essentially a suite with 2 bedrooms and was well appointed with no less than 3 flat screen...

we were lucky enough to be given the suite instead of a normal which made it very special having a sitting area separate from the bedroom both with larger than usual TVs for hotels. We ate here on two evenings and one lunch time and all the dishes were interesting and full of flavour. If you want quantity rather than... More

We based ourselves here for one night whilst doing Christmas shopping at Bicester. We stayed in room 5 which was a charming and comfortable room. The room had some lovely touches (glass bottles with milk and water in the fridge) and was impressed for a county inn. We had dinner and as it was the Christmas party season, the restaurant... More
