Just got back from a two night weekend break, staying at the Duke of Marlborough just outside Woodstock. We enjoyed our weekend but there were a couple of niggles with the hotel. We stayed in room 205 and our friends stayed in 105. On receiving our keys to our room, we walked outside to where the rooms were in a... More

We stopped here for a out stop during a long drive and it was like heaven! Great food and lovely service from the staff. The place was clean and warm and welcoming. I would go out of my way to go back!

We were looking for somewhere quiet to stay over the holidays for a night and found this pub on the main road out of Woodstock. Of the boxes we wanted to tick this place had: good ale, good food, good room, although the bed was slightly smaller than we are used to, good breakfast and a good landlord. The restaurant... More

Visited back in March 2014 and was disappointed with certain aspects - room (107) had unpleasant smell, seemingly overcharged for dinner, (exactly same dish on menu as on a specials board outside but unless you happened to see the board, you paid £5 more!), and a mix up during check out which could have been very costly had I not...

Friend and I were just driving in the Cotswold to explore the country, and came across this pub. The staff were really friendly, and the fish in chips was really unique! All in all, excellent food and a cozy atmosphere with classic English decor. Had a really enjoyable lunch and nice experience!

Warm welcome, comfy surroundings and beautifully presented afternoon tea. Atmosphere was perfect with a roaring log fire. Plenty of hot tea, fresh, delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones, jam and cream made this a wonderful treat. We would both definitely recommend this experience which was exceptional value. Thank you.

We wanted somewhere near Blenheim Palace, we went to the Christmas craft fare, absolutely fabulous and some beautiful crafts available. It was important to have parking, and this venue supplied that. Lovely old fashioned pub atmospher, roaring log fires, food was great, and the staff were lovely, very friendly and very helpful. We stayed in room 205, lovely, spacious, and... More

Were given vouchers for an afternoon tea which we used here, I think their value was £30 for 2 persons. Reasonably warm welcome, and had the choice of where to sit, so we chose comfortable armchairs by the fire. The venue was pretty empty, and didn't have any atmosphere. Two pots of tea were fine, cakes and scones with jam... More

I stayed here whilst on a training course and the room and food there was above a standard that I expect a hotel to be. However what really made my stay there better was the staff in particular Bryony and Phil. Extremely friendly and made me feel very welcome. Well done!
