Quiet, rural and comfortable location with a friendly, knowledgeable team serving good food throughout the day. All needs are catered for with a level of service that the chains seem to have forgotten how to deliver. An example is the birthday banner and balloons placed in our room for Mrs C's birthday and the suggested route throguh the Cotswolds that... More

Couldn't be bothered cooking so went for a quick pub meal, we has gammon egg and chips and the Guinness and beef pie. The staff were nice, served quickly and the food was good, nothing special but also couldn't complain about anything. It is what it is, just average pub food, I have to say we went at 6.30 for...

This is an old country inn, now a pub/restaurant, with a small motel block built on the back. About a mile north of Woodstock. Aims high and mostly succeeds. Easy to find in a rural setting. Ample parking close to rooms. Huge room by comparison with most hotels. Most hotels in the Woodstock/Oxford area are much more expensive and probably... More

Appreciated the late late availability. This is a motel style establishment with ample free parking. Accommodation is set over two floors in a chalet style. Rooms adjoin a classic country pub with open fire. Food ranges from pub classics to signature farm dishes. Good wholesome Fayre. Good range of real local ales. Rooms are a little dated in decor but... More

This is the second meal we have had here while staying with my daughter and we couldn't fault it for choice of menu, amount and quality. The goats' cheese strudel was unusual and tasty and the seafood antipasti gorgeous. Service was quick and staff helpful. Apparently the beer was good too, though I had wine. I would certainly go back.

The rooms are located behind the Inn in a separate building. The room was a good size and clean tea and coffee making facilities in the room with nice biscuits. The... More

I have to say, as a local, we booked the DofM for my Dads 70th Birthday lunch and as usual the service and food quality was great. We booked about 2 months ago and everything was exactly as expected. The service was perfect. I have been to the DofM on a number of occasions and I have never been disappointed... More

We didn't actually stay there. Our booking for 3 rooms in May (booked last October) had been lost so no room at the Inn. I asked about stables but no luck. However the staff (especially the landlord) could not have been more helpful in finding us alternative rooms. A bad experience made good with great courtesy and apology.
