We visited with friends for Saturday lunch. We had three courses plus wine. The food was home made and very good quality with the starters being a particular highlight. The service was efficient and professional during what was a very quiet period. The only issue I would have is the price. £15 for sausage and mash is OTT even though... More

Typical village pub, nice atmosphere, dimmed lights. The food is tasty and the portions are good, however it might be a bit expensive as pub food.

Met family for a post Christmas meal. Randomly chose this pub and were really pleased with it. Lovely old pub with quaint charm, although it was pretty cold inside - luckily we were all warmly wrapped up. Very attentive service, with lots of smiles. Everyone enjoyed their meal choices - although my husband misread the menu and thought ham and... More

we went for Sunday lunch earlier this month. It is a lovely old stone inn with lots of character and friendly attentive staff. The roasts were really good-but quite expensive at £18-19 for one course. The bread and butter puddings-£6- were excellent.

Went here for Sunday lunch with my girlfriend and her parents. It was the only place near by that had tables for us, so we promptly took a table. The menu was good and not filled with the usual gastro-pub cliches. We all ended up going for the roast beef which was excellent. Lovely gravy and vegtables. I was, however,... More

Lovely restaurant in pretty village. Tables offer privacy for a romantic meal or larger for parties. Lovely food with a good choice. Excellent service. Open fire makes it very cosy. A lovely place for that special meal

Great service, great food, best restaurant I've visited in a long time and I have been to a lot! The best bread and butter pudding probably in the world!

This was our first visit here and we had a good lunch. They have an excellent selection of drinks and the menu choice is varied. There are other places to eat in the area that I personally think have a better standard of food for the same price but if you're in Kirtlington, passing through or live in the area... More
