We spent 5 Days in this lovely place. The Owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The only point was the noise from the Motorway; however only when the window was open. The food in the Restaurant was superb. I especially enjoyed the Steak, which was really properly dry aged and then cooked to perfection. I would... More

Food was good big menu reasonably priced, reasons for not giving it 5 out of 5 is due to the decor for me it is looking a bit dated and desert Ice cream sundaes are not made individually to order they appear to be bought in ready prepared in plastic serving cups which are placed directly into a glass they...

Ideal for visiting Silverstone at peak events as easy to get to and local taxi service 007 very reliable. Fantastic food and even bought home cured bacon and free range eggs to take home. I think all rooms are twins but they were spacious and adequate for what we needed.

OK this must be the most difficult establishment to find due to lack of signeage from the road. To find it in the dark give yourself five stars. Investments in an actual lit sign would be good. This is a husband and wife run hotel/ B and B and do they work for their money. It looks the 7 days... More

Stayed at this hotel/restaurant whilst on a trip to Silverstone MotoGP. Looked deserted when we arrived but we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. Ate here on Saturday and Sunday evening and the only problem on Sunday evening was whether to choose the same we had had on Saturday which was delicious, or go for something different.... More

Phil is a butcher by trade and really knows how to select and cook the best quality meat. Meals are good value and quality with generous portions. Five minutes from Banbury town centre and located just off junction... More
