The pub had a lovely bar area which we ate in on both evenings as we had our dog staying with us, the pub and accommodation is were very dog friendly... More

Not the cheapest place around but quality through all departments. Head chef is the owner, speaks for it's self when it comes to all food served from breakfast through lunch to dinner. Rooms excellent, good size, quiet, very clean and set in a garden courtyard environment. Very nice indeed.

WIFI was free but variable signal strength and poor mobile signal for me on ee network. There was no hair dryer in the rooms. Otherwise great place with very attentive staff and the chef... More

We've visited this pub a few times for lunch and always had a good meal. The atmosphere is welcoming and has a Welsh rugby theme with beers to match. Food is tasty and good portions are provided. Service is prompt.

Went into the bar area to order lunch and was told the kitchen was shut, this was despite me saying to the... More

Pleasant situation, north of Witney. Attractive pub with rooms in courtyard. Large car park and quiet surroundings. Reasonable welcome; booked dinner for work colleague & self. Room 6; a family room was spacious, but quite dark inside. Room on ground floor, so when family arrived in room above, the sound of footfall was intrusive. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was dowdy....

My husband and I booked a one night stay here coinciding with our visit to nearby Blenheim Palace. We received a friendly welcome from the young woman at the bar (where we had to check-in) and she directed us to our room ("Betws-y-Coed") on the ground floor in the nearby "motel style" block. Our standard double room was spacious with... More

Two night stay , lovely spacious room. Bathroom clean and functional but would benefit from an update- a little tired. Having said this it did not distract from a very satisfactory stay. Bed comfy, pillows great! Would have appreciated comfy chairs ! We stayed in this hotel with family members and they were also very happy with the hotel. We... More
