We didn't stay here as were on a nearby caravan site, but 6 of us had an evening meal whilst visiting the area for the Blenheim Palace battle proms. The service was excellent, very friendly staff and the food was lovely, hot and tasty with lots of choice. Would definitely recommend and visit here again if in the area.

Arrived here during our week stay and wanted some lunch in the beautiful town of woodstock, went to the bar and asked if we could order some lunch and the manager was just about to say no but the lady from the kitchen(possibly his wife?) Said she would accomodate us if we ordered straight away! This was fine and we... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in June. The Punchbowl is situated right in the middle of Woodstock and has its own car park. The owners are delightful and very helpful, the food is good quality home cooked food which goes down very well in a town where there are quite a few restaurants, breakfast is excellent and... More

A great, excellent gem of a find in Woodstock. We stayed for 4 nights for my husband's birthday. Very friendly and helpful service, clean ground floor room, great food and drinks less expensive than elsewhere locally. Very close to bus stop so we parked car in free hotel car park. Went to Oxford for the day twice and round Blenheim... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of June. The car park at the back had been a big reason for choosing as we wanted to know that the car was nearby and as Woodstock is old - not much car parking! The pub was clean and the room we had was delightful. It is... More

A very comfortable place to stay! Nice rooms all en suite clean and tidy. Tea and coffee making facilities in every room. Very friendly staff. Car park at the rear also cycle friendly, in some cases you can take your bicycle into your room if you wish.

Took my dad here for Sunday dinner on fathers day. We had visited Blenheim palace first and the pub was only a few mins drive away. First impressions were good as was the welcome and service. We ordered 2 sunday roasts and had the choice of chicken or pork. We both opted for pork of which we had 3/4 chunky... More

Booked on spec and decided to stay two nights. Very clean pub and rooms. Chatty landlord, very pleasant. Food average, bit expensive for what you got. Brilliantly placed for going to Blenheim Palace. Would stay again.

We chose to stay here as the price was competitive compared to other establishments in the area. The inn itself is nice with beer gardens to the front & rear and a small car park. At time of booking I requested two double rooms however on arrival we were given a double and a family room. The double was lovely... More

Close to Blenheim Palace with decent evening meals in a friendly pub atmosphere and some acoustic guitar thrown in. Clean and spacious rooms and private car park at rear of premises. Good English breakfast or cereals if preferred. Would definitely stay again.
