Far from friendly welcome - tired small rooms and pretty noisy with fire doors slamming until the early hours. Entrance to Boycott room up rusty staircase to a very tired looking door (looked like a cheap American motel). Nice evening meal in restaurant and reasonable breakfast. Stayed for two nights and would not return.

A charming, English Inn on the countryside with very friendly staff, good food, comfortable beds and a nice 'beer-garden'. Very convenient for meals at Le Manoir, which is 5 min down the road. All in all, a very pleasant stay in beautiful surroundings.

Had a very relaxed sunny lunch in the garden few days ago. Good variety on the menu; very friendly and polite staff. Panninis were good, large sized portions - tad too much fat on the bacon in mine if you want a fussy comment. Tables and benches were the combined pub table with long built in bench either side -...

We stayed here for one night on a business trip as it was much better value than anything closer and nicer than the motorway hotel options. Travelled down on the Sunday morning and enjoyed an afternoon in the beer garden, had a lovely evening meal and some more drinks, and then stayed in one of the small but suitable double... More

We had a really nice stay at the Bat and the Ball Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and we really slept soundly. All was beautifully done. It was handy for dinner at nearby Le Manoir but I can also say that the menu in the pub that night was quite attractive too. Wish... More

Great little place to stay in Oxford. The rooms are clean and spacious. Free WiFi are available in rooms. There is a little pub downstairs and breakfast is good! Price is reasonable too. There is a parking space behind the hotel.

My partner and I booked and paid for this B&B (one night) over two weeks before we intended to arrive. Roughly five days before our arrival, they called us twice to re-confirm our already confirmed booking, which we thought odd... then, roughly a day before our stay we were informed that a leak had damaged the mattress and as there...

Although the price was fair, the experience was totally underwhelming. The service was far from warm. The room size was nothing like what we were led to believe from the photos which were obviously shot with a very wide-angle lens. We stayed in the Boycott room which is a small annexe above the pub. The room was a bit grimy,... More

Had a lovely weekend break at this cosy pub. Traditional setting with a modern twist wooden tables, flagstones and fairy lights. Friendly staff, lovely setting and convenient to visit Oxford. The room was clean and comfortable, well worth a visit.
