The setting in a hamlet with fields red with poppies across the road was lovely. The car park was large with only a short walk to our room in a courtyard just yards from the pub. Our twin room was large, clean and comfortable as was the bathroom with the added bonus of having windows on three of the walls... More

I am sorry to say we didn't experience the wonderful service other reviewers did. Very upset to have an unpleasant altercation with them, after complaining we had to wait 25 minutes for breakfast despite advising we needed to be a way fairly quickly as we were working at a local show when we first ordered and then after having to...

We were two couples, one of which were elderly parents staying here for four days to visit the Cotswolds. We cannot express enough how well we looked after. The staff were brilliant, very friendly, caring and made our stay relaxing and enjoyable.

3 night stay as base for Blenheim and Cotswolds. Quiet location with large motel style rooms in separate building. Excellent food and beers. Only minor problem was all draft bitters off on first night but made up for it on last 2 !

We took our mum here for lunch for her 60th birthday, the food was really good, reasonably priced and the place was very clean and well presented. The staff were all very pleasant too. Would very likely visit here again for a nice lunch.

Weekend stay at the Bird in Hand as part of a family group was excellent - the rooms were all clean, spacious and comfortable, the food and ales really good, but perhaps best of all the very helpful and friendly staff who made everyone so welcome and catered for all individual needs and requests. Will certainly return and recommend without... More

Everything I have to say is positive. Lovely big, clean airy room. Free WiFi. Excellent, polite and cheerful service throughout our weekend stay. Excellent quality, choice & quantity of food. Very impressive food service, given that there was a party of 32 being served at the same time as many other tables. Excellent location for visiting Oxford & Blenheim, both... More

Rooms are plain and simple, everything works as it should, a few items could be moved more into to 2010's, ie Pine Furniture and Mattresses. The big points score is the Pub and its food, ensure you book a table!, The theme is Welsh Rugby Union, this should not put you off (unless you are a fanatic England supporter and... More

We stayed here for three nights, and to say the staff and service was "second to none" would be an understatement. they do actually make this B&B what it is. We only ate there one evening and the food was excellent, as was the breakfasts. Unfortunately a couple of things let things down, otherwise our stay would have been superb:... More
