Met here for a meal with family and friends. Save to say never again. Whole place was filthy staff need a course on basic health and hygiene. Waitress/barmaid was walking around with a towel over her shoulder with her long hair dangling on it then brought our food to the table holding the plates with that same towel. Lovely setting...

A very friendly pub in a lovely location by the River. A bit quiet when we stayed, I think things will get busier later in the year when people from the nearby holiday sites visit. Staff were friendly, room was a nice size with lovely views of the river. A little bit isolated, but ideal for a quiet weekend and... More

A quiet January Saturday night stay and it was superb. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for owner Peter and his wife. We had room 8 spotlessly clean and decorated with a great view over the Thames and access to the roof top balcony. Definitely planning summer trip to enjoy that. We had a meal.which again... More

When you find the hotel at the end of the long lanes, it is worth finding. Friendly staff and customers. Facilities good. Marvellous location by the river Thames. When we say the views in the morning light is was marvelous

Nice venue for a get together, about twenty of us met for an evening of skittles. As with several other Oxfordshire Pubs there is a skittles alley which is free to customers. The Staff were polite and friendly. The value was very good and a good evening was had by all. The service was fine only let down by some... More

As suggested by its name, The Ferryman Inn enjoys a peerless site on the River Thames. It has a large, very pleasant garden and limitless car parking. Our little party of Thames Path walkers (Granny, Grandpa and two grandchildren) arrived at 2.30 p.m. The rooms were not ready but that was hardly a problem with a sunny afternoon, outside tables,...

Stopped here when we were on holiday on the river, beautiful location, we were able to moor our boat right outside as the ferry no longer operates, local legend is that it sank with a car on it and it's still at the bottom of the river, who knows.It's a really peaceful location ideal for walking or a bit of...

I booked a room at the Ferryman five months in advance for a weekend that I knew would be busy, they accepted my booking and took a deposit to secure it. Two weeks before my stay I received a call to say that they'd mistakenly accepted a booking from Laterooms and therefore had to cancel my booking. To their credit,... More

We booked through late rooms as this was really the only place with a room for Blenheim Flower show dates (now we know why!). Our room was not ready when we arrived at 3.45pm although the place was not full. The breakfast is mean - orange juice (pre poured) box of cereal and toast. We were told on arrival we... More
