We had two evening meals and one lunch here while staying in a cottage at Swinford Farm. The bar staff were all very friendly on each occasion and the meals were great value. We had excellent pies on our first visit (on Monday evenings these are only £8.50 and there are other deals on other evenings); huge doorstep sandwiches with... More

Decided to revisit this river side pub/restaurant as we had had a lovey meal before. WHAT a disappointment. We where shown to our table handed menus and left to our own devices. No one asked did we know about the set up, or offered to get drinks for us. One of our party went to the bar and ordered drinks.... More

We booked a room last minute as an overnight stop. The room was adequately furnished with good quality furniture. Unfortunately the housekeeping was awful. The carpet didn't look as though it had been vacuumed and was grubby in the corners, there were marks on the wall and the bed valance that we hoped were tomato ketchup! Sticky cup rings on... More

Whereas the staff were all polite and helpful (to a certain degree), the budget accomodation was AWFUL! cramped, cobwebs dangling, no hooks or towel rail in the minute bathroom in which we constantly bashed our knees on the loo seat in trying to negociate the really REALLY tight space, filthy stairs, nuts and bolts on our bedroom floor for the...

the food used to be fantastic, but it has gone downhill, the food took a long time to be served and when it did my husband's food was incorrect. the food used to be home cooked, the food now tastes like it has been microwaved.

Dropped in for lunch on the off chance as had passed the pub many times on the way into Oxford. It is pleasant inside and had a good range of ales. I had the Wiltshire Gold from a barrel behind the bar and it was excellent. My wife chose the backed potato with prawns and I had the sausage sandwich,... More

I don't have a good word to say about our stay here. The housekeeping is shocking! The carpet in our room looked like it had never seen a vacuum cleaner. We had to keep our shoes on to keep our feet clean! We had two single beds pushed together with a hard ridge down the middle. The beds didn't even... More

It's so sad to read reviews that are borne out of another hotels incompetence setting you off on a bad wicket really. I have copied and pasted our response to your complaint to Laterooms to perhaps paint a picture for others to see. We went out of our way to help you during your stay and it was NOT OUR... More

The staff were very welcoming. Excellent home cooked food. Comfortable room. Plenty of parking. Attractive seating area outside by the river. Well cooked breakfast. The Inn has charm - and a wisteria in bloom outside!
