A very convenient pub offering B&B on the way in to Woodstock with off street parking for guests. Good clean room with large bathroom. Within easy walking distance of Blenhiem Palace, very convenient private entrance for those attending weddings and returning late.

Had a kate lunch here in a rainy day - excellent quick service in a lovely clean stylishly furnished pub - very friendly and helpful staff- lovely background music and huge portions at pub prices rather than fleecing you at restaurant prices

Spent 2 nights at the Punchbowl Inn in August. Location is excellent and the inn itself is so quaint. Parking is available and you don't need your car at all. Walk to Blenheim Palace. Woodstock is very small but there are multiple restaurants that you can stroll to within 5 minutes. Punchbowl Inn is comfortable, accomodating, bed was good, bathroom... More

It was alright. As a location, its excellent and Woodstock is a lovely village. But there is something missing. It may have been a squeaky slightly uncomfortable bed or a rushed breakfast but it didn’t quite hit the mark. If the room had been slightly cheaper, then it could be excused but I think if we go back to Woodstock,... More

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.
