Excellent
Aug 2020 • Family
Had a fantastic meal, excellent food and faultless service. We are very spoilt with places to eat with good food in this area. However, what set this place apart was the service, perfect balance of attentiveness, chat, awareness of drinks becoming low and checking you are ok. Very accommodating of young child and the Covid measures made us feel very comfortable.

Good if you like excessive noise and being shouted at.
Nov 2019 • Family
Not a happy place for me. I am a 70 year old disabled woman visiting to dine with my grownup children. We had prebooked and were a little early but when my daughter and I tried to sit at the table allocated we were shouted at most rudely by presumably the manager. He thought we were trying to usurp the table booked for someone else. It was a big shock to me, I am not used to being treated so unpleasantly. It is also a very noisy place when full and we couldn't hear each other speak. Won't be visiting again.

Spot on!
Feb 2019 • Family
Booked a table for three. My wife and I had a super Sunday lunch here, and decided to pay a visit again with our son after walking around Witney Lakes.
The waitress was fabulous, friendly, and knowledgeable.
My son had rump steak, my wife had a lamb pie, and I had pork belly. I can only be honest and say we thoroughly enjoyed the food - the evidence was 3 completely empty plates!
I can truly say my pork was the best I've tasted, and which virtually melted in my mouth.
Two visits and two 'spot on' meals.
Will be visiting again very soon - great place!

Really delicious, carefully prepared food
Sep 2018 • Couples
That I've visited here twice for lunch with family in two weeks (when there are so many places to eat in Witney) is an indication of how much I like the food! I've visited for a Friday and a Saturday lunch; both times the food has been excellent - and the service friendly. The risotto was just lovely, and the lemon sole I had yesterday was pretty much perfect.

A dissapointment!!
Jan 2017 • Couples
Having read the reviews on this site we decided to break up our journey to our hotel and stop here for something to eat. We walked in and we're greeted very warmly by the staff, the decor was to our liking, all in all a great start, we were slightly early for our 2pm booking, but were seated early, something we did not mind.
A very nice waitress took our order, we had decided because we had an evening meal booked at our hotel we would have just a selection of starters, no problem at all the waitress remarked.
Well I would like to ask is it acceptable to wait for 40 minutes for your food? We sat patiently, I became frustrated but never said a thing, I would like to say however the young waitress on two occasions apologised for the length I time we had to wait, so they were clearly aware of the issue.
When the food arrived it was as follows,
Garlic King prawns- absolutely no hint of garlic what so ever.
Battered gherkins- enjoyable.
Hummus- a very small portion served with slightly warm pitta bread, so soft and pappy. Vastly overpriced at £6.50.
A by no means last,
Baked Camembert, on pulling back the rind, a scrambled egg consistency, overcooked possibly? Normally this would be creamy and oozy.
We should have complained but didn't, our fault, but I didn't want to spoil my weekend away with my lovely lady. Upon clearing our plates, my lady did question the cheese with the young waitress who replied " someone else had said something about the cheese, and was told the reason was the cheese wasn't ripe". Question? Why is it on be menu if that's the case?
Looking at the other food being dished up around us, the roast beef in particular, I can see why people would eat here it looked fantastic.
We have said we would try this pub again if in the area, only we wouldn't choose starters, but rather mains.

Good pub grub and atmosphere
Dec 2016 • Friends
Called on Friday at 8pm and they managed to squeeze in a party of 7 at 9pm. Got there and the place was packed. Found our table and were presented with a menu. A great selection of good pub grub, not fine dining a la Carte but great tasting gastro pub food. Will definitely visit again.

A lovely catch up with friends over some very original mouth watering food. Lovely venue, an ideal place for couples and larger parties. Service was spot on and the overall ambience was delightful. Fully recommend.

Just amazing

Stumbled upon this restaurant on a weekend away, it looks to be your standard Gastropub, inside the decoration is perfect, candles light every table beautiful atmosphere. The food was to die for, and the service was on point even though there was a massive function on - would go back in a heartbeat
