We stayed in the Punchbowl inn on 4th October so we could visit Blenheim Palace. The room we booked was the only room available for that weekend. We had visited the webpage and the photographs did not do it any justice at all. We went along expecting a rather shabby pub. When we arrived we were so impressed. The current... More

I stayed for three nights and had a double room for single use. Room was at back of premises and very quiet but some rooms are at front and the premises is on the road so you could get some noise. Room and bathroom clean and comfortable. Staff very welcoming and could not do enough for you. Even served me... More

A lot of work has clearly been put in to improve this hotel since we last stayed there. The room was beautifully set out and spacious and obviously newly decorated. Woodstock is a lovely touristy village/town and we were a little surprised there was not the usual folder of local places to visit in our room. This is a small... More

My husband and I stayed here along with other family members at the weekend for a 50th birthday party locally. We arrived early but the manager was happy for us to park our cars in the car park while we took a walk around Blenheim. My husband knew the pub from a long time ago and was very impressed with...

Went here on spec and it was a little away from the centre and the concentration of tourist places. It was quiet with a great menu and good beer. We found really friendly and polite staff and had a great lunch. This pub was not overpriced like many surrounding places in the town. We will definitely go back.

Went to Woodstock for 3 nights over the August Bank Hol to see the classic car show at Blenheim (very good!). Firstly, we didn't stay at the Punchbowl Inn as we'd already got accommodation elsewhere, so can only speak for the restaurant, at which we ate every evening. You know what it's like - tried it once, loved it, kept... More

We stayed overnight on Friday at The Punchbowl Inn in Woodstock. We had decided to ignore previous bad reports as it had new owners. We found it to be a lovely Pub and a great place to stay during our visit to Blenheim Palace. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and the room we stayed in was... More

Came here for one night and stayed two, that says a lot! Had read reviews and ignored the older ones. The new owners are very friendly and welcoming, the public areas are beautifully presented as was the room we stayed in. We mentioned a minor problem with the loo seat and it was fixed whilst we were out. There has... More

Six of us called in for a drink and found a real gem. The staff were exceptionally friendly, the new décor was superb and the beers very well kept. The hanging baskets around the pub were spectacular. We look forward to returning soon.
