Myself & husband stopped here last weekend. The accommodation was wonderful, clean & well presented with ample tea & coffee available in the room. The food in the pub/restaurant was superb as we had breakfast and an evening meal. We would stay here again.

We have just enjoyed a three day stay here. It is a very quiet location, so excellent quality of sleep in comfy rooms which are around a courtyard slightly apart from the main pub building. Food is also a strong point - we ate here two nights and one member of our party for all three. Extensive menu with wide... More

The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, they really put themselves out for us. We were a party of 11 people, from age 4 to 68, but they managed to care for us all. The accommodation is very good, we had four rooms, and the quality was very good. The food was really tasty, well cooked and prepared.... More

We had a great stay in this hotel whose restaurant style 'pub'. The food is very good and the atmosphere more friendly. This property has a very large parking. We recommend it to those who wish to visit the area: Blenheim Palace, the small villages of the Cotswolds and so on.

Stayed here to attend a family wedding. Rooms are spacious, but lighting is a bit "misplaced" and the rooms would definitely benefit from a full length mirror, and as usual all of the plugs are no where near the mirrors, ( dont understand how so many hotels make that mistake). Bathrooms could do with a refurb. The cooked breakfasts were... More

I recently stayed at the Bird in Hand and what a lovely place it was. The rooms where bright, clean and a very good size with the room I stayed in having triple aspect.

We were recommended this place by the Plough Inn, Finstock and what a find after the disastrous experience we had in Chipping Norton. The rooms were very cosy and the service was very helpful and friendly. We did have a problem with ants on the tea tray (thankfully not spiders). The bath did have some mildew round the edges but...
