My bro and I stayed in a twin room. Comfortable beds and warm room. It is an old pub, so therefore don't expect a chain style modern room. It is a charming place. Fred, the owner, very hospitable and a real hard worker! One of the reasons for staying here was to eat well, drink well, and collapse for the... More

Fred the landlord offered a great welcome and genuine friendly service during our visit of one night. What this ancient hotel lacks due to age is more than made up with atmosphere. The breakfast and dinner were well priced, very tasty and plenty of it.

The Oxford Arms, Kington is hands down the most friendly and atmospheric pub in town. The food is second to none and the specials board is constantly changing meaning that there is always something new on offer. Fred and Sadie are always extremely accommodating and you couldn't meet a nicer couple. All the staff are exceptionally courteous and always at... More

This pub is well worth a visit, it isn't the prettiest place but the food and service more than make up for it. The home cooked food was delicious and and the portions were generous. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back when we visit this area again.

Although I live in Kington I had a house full of guests so decided that as it was my birthday I would stop here with my husband and save the walk home. Wow is all I can say. Fred and Sadie are great hosts and the rooms are fabulous. Spacious spotless and a fantastic nights sleep with marvellous breakfast even... More

My friend and I (two women walking Offa's Dyke) were very happy we chose this place. The food was terrific and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The pub doesn't look particularly inviting on the outside, but once inside we felt at home and were warmly welcomed by the owner. My trout was delicious and perfectly cooked.

We had a great time at The Oxford Inn - thoroughly enjoyed the pub atmosphere & delicious food. Service at the bar was always with a smile. The landlord & landlady have created a special pub - and we loved staying here. We miss British pubs now we live in the USA! The accommodation was very nice, lots of tea,... More

The Oxford Arms was a great place to stay! The manager is fantastic; he let me bring my bike inside the back room, then gave me local beer to sample :) My room was large, clean, and the bed was comfortable. The adjoining shower was excellent, with lots of hot water :) I had a great evening in the pub... More

Ignore the shabby exterior and give this place a go! Wobbly creaky floors but a good size room with a small shower room next door. My double bed was great but my mates single was grubby, the bed linen was yucky. The landlord here is a star! He really does put the customer first. Great service and a smashing evening... More
