The accommodation is situated in a separate cottage which is very pretty. I shared a twin room which shared a bathroom with another room. Both bedroom and bathroom were nicely decorated, clean and well-maintained. I thought even the bedding itself was lovely and I had an excellent night's sleep! Our friends stayed in the family room downstairs which features it's... More

This property is very functional for a large family. The "family room" is essentially a 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen area (but you can´t really cook) separating the 2 bedrooms. It is comfortable and equipped with nice bedding and towels. The double bed mattress should probably be replaced sooner than later, but we passed 4 nights there with basically... More

We spent one night here and were very impressed with it. Our room was actually more of an apartment with a kitchenette and sofa. Very clean and warm, the breakfast was of a self service style with bagels, cereal, tea, coffee etc in very generous quantities, it was just the two of us but it would have fed six! We... More

Stopped here for Sunday lunch, having stopped when passing previously for a sandwich (equally as good!). Service was good - the staff certainly earn their money - and food was plentiful and excellent value.

We stopped off here for a meal on a Friday night whilst enroute to Bicester. It's very convenient for the A34. There were lots of locals drinking in the pub and the car park was very busy. The restaurant was at the back of the pub. The food was typical traditional pub fare with large portions and some specials. My... More

Lovely county'side views from the back room. A few squeaky doors but the place was clean & tidy. Well stocked. Coukd have dine with a few... More

A friendly welcome and a good range of food. We stopped off for lunch and just needed something light. They had a full menu and daily specials to choose from but we went for their "doorstep" sandwiches of bacon and brie. Excellent, served with tortilla chips and salad. Watch out for the Tuesday Silver Saver "Two courses set menu £6.... More

Stayed here for one night after visiting Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) on a girls day out. Three of us shared the family room (Room 1) which consists of one double, one twin, small kitchen and bathroom. We were exceedingly surprised and delighted with the quality of the room and facilities. A budget price but not a 'cheap' one. The food... More
