I visited the Beetle & Wedge last week for a small retirement dinner. On perhaps the coldest night of the year, and not long after the festive period, the restaurant was very quiet but nonetheless, we enjoyed a pre dinner drink in the delightful cellar bar before moving on to eat: I had the duck consommé (though have to say...

If I could award ten stars for the Beetle and Wedge I would. Our sixth visit here and our fourth Christmas Day visit. Everything was perfect, the welcome, the staff, the service, the ambience, the decorations and especially the food, all of it was fabulous. We particularly enjoyed the starters and the duck consommé but the traditional Turkey main course... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday evening at the B & W, in fact the best meal we've had in Oxfordshire! The atmosphere is relaxed and staff very friendly & attentive (without over fussing). We had starters, mains, puds & coffee - every course was a delight! None of the flavour is lost despite the very generous portion sizes. I particularly liked... More

We are regulars here and are very pleased with the food and atmosphere. Try the pork belly - best ever. Crispy duck starter so very good. Good wine selection. Staff very helpful. On the Thames which makes the venue quite special.

We have stayed at the beetle and wedge 3 times. Each time in a different room. My favourite is the downstairs room. We were fortunate enough to purchase a bed and breakfast voucher on each of our stays. We always had a beautiful evening meal there as well. There is plenty of parking, and the owners and staff are all... More

This was our second stay at the Beetle & Wedge, having previously visited in January 2011. Since that time, we have occasionally received newsletters, and received an offer a few months back for a £60 double room B&B winter special rate including a glass of bubbly. This really was a bargain for such a nice little restaurant with rooms so... More

We stayed one night at the Beetle & Wedge Boathouse recently and wished it could have been for longer. The welcome was warm and we felt very comfortable during our stay. The room was cosy with a generous bathroom and a really comfy bed, and we enjoyed lying in bed listening to the rain outside that night. The location of... More
