Ideally located as we were going to the battle Proms at Blenheim. Room was ok and clean but the beds were not of s good quality. In need of a good handyman I think. Broken soap holder in shower, toilet handle not put on properly and restricts the toilet lid.

We really liked this pub-hotel; the atmosphere in the old inn with its nicely decorated room. The service was also very good and friendly. Nice little town to stroll around. Just be aware that the traffic is just outside the window and inevitably it makes some noise. Very convenient place for visiting Blendham palace.

Upon walking in the pub looked very nice and welcoming however the beer selection was poor. On tap was the usual standard beers and there was a single ale on, no guest ales. The bottle selection was limited to 3 beers and again standard stuff. If like me you desire something different than the lager fizz and the standard drink... More

Stayed here for an overnight after visiting Blenheim Palace. The owner was friendly on arrival but I was surprised to be asked to pay for our room up front but perhaps they have had some people leave without paying. The room was fine, basic enough for the price (140 pounds) but we enjoyed a very quiet nights sleep. The bed... More

This is a lovely little place, clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but comfortable with an village feel - we stayed in the family room which was more than big enough for 4 adults. Would recommend and return, lovely food a range of choice for breakfast. 😊

Visited here at the weekend for Sunday lunch whilst visiting Blenheim. We struggled to find anywhere id I'm honest as the price of pub meals in Woodstock is extortionate! Anyway we settled on here £11.95 for a Sunday roast. Food was hot and the waitress was lovely. Went out of her way to accommodate one of the group that was... More

The Punchbowl Inn is in a great location almost opposite the entrance to Blenheim Palace. The family room was all that was available for the dates we needed. It is like a mini suite in lay out. The room was beautifully clean and the well equipped tea tray was nice. The main room has no natural light, the heating was... More

It was like sleeping on a race track! Room so noisy it was impossible to sleep. Do not eat here as food is pretty poor as is the breakfast. Definitely over-prized when compared to alternative accommodation such as the Blenheim buttery which has quiet comfy rooms and a lovely breakfast.

After a visit to Blenheim Palace we went into Woodstock to find somewhere for a quick bite. Parking is a nightmare but this place has a small car park at the back of the property. The pub is laid out nicely and the restaurant has plenty of space between the tables. We just had a Ploughmans lunch and a soft... More

We were pleasantly welcomed and shown to a corner table. Drinks were brought to the table. Food was ordered from quite an extensive menu and our starter arrived promptly. We both opted for soup which was obviously home made rather than from a tin and was substantial. Our main courses were also pretty large and well cooked. We each finished... More
