Can only describe it as excellent in terms of accommodation, food and service. Made to feel welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The bar and dining areas have recently been refurbished and finished to a high and welcoming standard.

Just returned from a wonderful two day break at this gorgeous Inn that is just brimming with character. Once again the owners managed to meet all our needs, and then some. They even catered for my husband's dietary restrictions with no problem whatsoever (quite often these are met at other establishments by the rolling of eyes or audible shouting from... More

I have stayed at the Punchbowl on three occasions in as many years...It is now under new ownership and the "Owner/Landlord" is certainly striving to make his guests feel at home and comfortable.. The Bar, dining area and bedrooms have been refurbished and are very clean and comfortable... The rooms at the rear are certainly quieter than those that face... More

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
