A family favorite

We've been going to the pub for many years and always have a tasty meal. It's clean, friendly and prices are good. It's great for family gatherings and also for a quiet meal for two. Highly recommended!

As always, we eat here quite often, it was busy but service consistently excellent due no doubt to the pub being well managed. Food very good; better than pub grub but not cordon bleu. Prices moderate. Comfortable, nicely decorated with lovely flowers and garden. We will keep going there.

En route back from Bristol to the Midlands past Oxford, we all needed to eat but chose a pub rather than sandwiches. what a nice surprise to find this pub on the main road and, although busy with car in its enormous carpark, there was plenty of room inside and out. with a welcoming staff and prompt service, we enjoyed...

The staff here were some of the most friendly and helpful that I have ever encountered. Wide selection of pub food from children's portions, sandwiches, salads and standard grills etc. I also noticed that there were a selection of daily papers for the solo visitor. Place was clean and the toilets immaculate. Excellent value for money and the Table Reservation... More

I had a fish and chips and it was not good at all. It was very, very oily and burned. The place is indeed nice and the beer selection is good, but I really do not suggest it for eating.

We were recommended to try the Greyhound and decided to give it a try. Friday night is a busy time it seems as the place was packed. The bar and restaurant are well laid out and decorated quite nicely. It didn't take long to be attended to and seated at out table. We were sat in the conservatory area. Starters... More

Fantastic evening with good service and food. Would certainly recommend to any one. The portions seemed to be a little on the small side, but couldn't fault any thing else.
