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.

Stayed as party of five in a double and triple rooms. Very easy to find with parking. Rooms comfy and well appointed although a little stuffy as window wouldn't open. Clean, lovely thick towels and comfy beds. Nice evening meal and great choice for breakfast. Friendly management and staff.

This small inn is located on the Oxford Road but the rooms were very quiet. We felt welcomed by the innkeeper from the first moment after check-in. He was gracious, friendly but not intrusive; a real asset! The pub was cozy and inviting. The dining room was comfortable and bright. Our meals were delicious; hot and tasty and served promptly....

My friend and I stayed here back in October when visiting Oxford. The rooms were clean and a good price. The bar and restaurant area was very stylish. The staff really make this pub.

After visiting Woodstock for the day we decided to have dinner before heading home. From the outside the quaint little pub looked lovely. I had the fish of the day and my partner had a chicken roast. Both were fantastic and tasted delicious. The potatoes were fully and crispy with the fish being finished with a lovely sauce and garnished.... More

Stayed here several times now and this trip we brought our son who had a lovely room all to himself. We are treated so well by all the staff and they really can't do enough to help us. We dined in the restaurant for each of our three nights and were literally spoiled for choice. Sunday roast was very tasty... More

We ate here one evening while staying in Woodstock in order to see the Palace. The landlord was welcoming as was the pub itself. Freshly decorated and clean. There was a good menu and the food was delivered in a timely manner and was fresh and tasty. The wine was excellent and reasonably priced. All in all this is a... More
