I stayed at The Kite Inn due to the relatively high rating on TripAdvisor coupled with a low price. I can't really recommend this place. The room was cold, the floor slanted noticeably so that the door did not properly align with the door frame. No complimentary soap was provided for the communal bathroom. The table lamp did not work.... More

In all the years I've been going to pubs, I've never witnessed a member of bar staff 'front up' to a customer, insisting that they ordered something that they didn't and forcing them to pay for it, yet this is exactly what happened last night in this pub. Absolutely outrageous! At first I really thought they were joshing my friend... More

This back-street pub in a residential street, recently renovated and now run by friendly Australians, is well worth a visit. There are usually three ciders and half a dozen real ales on, and the food is worth a detour. It's basically a local's pub which is very welcoming. I've been in twice this week - the first time on my... More

Recently taken over by a lovely Australian family. The decor is great and very tastefully done. A very good range of well kept beers and an excellent range of wine and ciders. A great welcome when you walk in and a very fairly priced menu. The food was well cooked and promptly served. Excellent value for money. Better than other... More

I happened to be at the Kite for an overnight stay when the person who posted a review "avoid at all costs" caused a stink. he was the most obnoxious guest, loud, rude and abusive not only to the manager, but fellow guests and patrons, so I think it is fair to put the record straight. As fay as I'm... More

Revisited on my annual pilgrimage to Oxford. New management and a fresh refurb - Still an excellent friendly locals pub with 5 ales and 3 ciders on draught in good condition (Cask Marque). Food menu with lots of choice at good prices (I had the mixed grill at 8.95). BT wifi worked well. Worth seeking out. Handy for boaters on... More

We stayed at the Kite Inn for one night for a concert in Oxford. We were able to park outside using a parking permit for £10 which was very helpful. The staff were all very friendly and we enjoyed a couple of drinks before checking in. We were shown up to our room and had a lovely chat with the... More

I've stayed in many guesthouses, BnBs and hotels and in all my time I have never come across such a rude and unwelcoming hotelier as the lady in charge of this place. I booked a twin room - the room was made up of a double and single bed. I returned in the wee hours after a meal with friends... More

2nd visit to this great little pub. Food drink and service was excellent on both occasions and very good value. Beer battered fish and chips with a veggie burger called garden burger all cooked fresh. Good selection of drinks at a very reasonable price. Well worth a visit
