My wife (who is wheelchair dependent) and I attended a birthday buffet lunch for 45 people. Nothing was too much trouble. The selection of dishes was amazing, and the amount jut tremendous - 'doggie-bags' provided! And of course Hookie ales! Easy flat parking and lovely gardens. The a la carte menu is VERY tempting. Highly recommended

We booked a suite for extra space for a 2 night stay, staff were very helpful, polite and efficient, evening meal and breakfast were of good quality. How ever we returned mid afternoon to change to find the room door wedged open, the spare bed removed, our property moved to the main bed, but most concerning the contents of a... More

I'm not sure how the owners of this pub/restaurant will make any money! The quality of service is low with poorly trained and inexperienced waiting staff. When you arrive you are lucky to be noticed by the waiting staff and when you eventually do they will take an age to get a menu for you. So many of the basics... More

I stayed there with two colleagues whilst on a business course. The rooms were of an excellent standard. The food is extremely good and cooked to an extremely high standard but my highest praise is fir tge staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and very willing to please. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Friendly, great food and coffee.. Owner run and occupied with great attention to detail.. Easy parking, very close to woodstock and all the local attractions - like Blenheim palace and the lovely market town of Woodstock itself..

Enjoyed an excellent meal on Tuesday evening after a hot day sightseeing in the surrounding area. Staff were friendly & efficient. Menu had a wide & varied choice. I can wholeheartedly recommend the creamy garlic mushrooms & the fish pie!

I was coming to Oxford on business and needed somewhere to stay for a few days. Downtown Oxford can be very expensive and so I opted for somewhere a little bit out of town. This place was a great place to stay for a few days. The rooms are clean and adequate. The restaurant is very good with attentive staff... More

We went to support a friend participating in the triathlon and chose this hotel as it was just a couple of miles from Blenheim. Our accessible room was large and very comfortable, but the bathroom a little tired. The biscuits on the hospitality tray were superb! Baguettes at lunchtime were fresh and delicious, and breakfasts excellent. My husband is a... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, and offered guidance regarding Blenheim Palace, and other places of interest in Oxfordshire. The bar was well stocked, inviting and full of old world charm. The room was a pleasant surprise, spacious and comfortable. The diner menu was good and staff and chef obliging going out of their way to modify the meal for... More

We had an excellent stay with friendly and helpful hosts and very good food. Would definitely recommend and stay again if in the area. Stayed with our 16 year old granddaughter so we needed the free wi-fi, which worked very well.
