You would have thought with a prime position as you enter the centre of Deddington that these guys would have tried harder. Food ok, Beer OK, Service OK, Prices OK, Ambience A bit odd. If you are looking for OK then this is for you but nothing particularly of note to write about. Reading other reviews it looks like we... More

Currently there is a Travel Zoo lunch offer to dine here, otherwise we had not heard of Deddington. What a nice find. The hotel was quiet for lunch service so we had pick of seating and excellent service. The surroundings are very comfortable and looks like a recent refurbishment. There is plenty on the menu to choose from and the... More

We only visited this restaurant due to a Travelzoo offer and very much enjoyed the experience. The food was pretty good and the restaurant happily accommodated our undemanding requests to exchange some of their standard components. The food was quite good, presented with some obvious care, with adequate well cooked vegetables and tasty sauces. The service was exemplary with the... More

We visited at the end of january and had a lovely meal in the restaurant section infront of a log fire. I recommend the burger and my children had fantastic pizzas.

The food here is excellent and so is the service. The decor has been re vamped and this makes the restaurant an enjoyable place to come.

Have drank in the bar several times which is always welcoming with its choice of real ales, fire and slate floors so we arrived early to have a few drinks. The bar area is fairly small but and after a few drinks we were ready to move through to the restaurant. This seemed more modern than I can remember it... More

Went there with a party of 7 expecting an average pub lunch and was very pleasantly surprised with the standard of food. A Sunday lunch in December could have been so different but the very busy lunchtime went without a hitch. The food was properly cooked and presented, the vegetables freshly cooked, hot and not overdone! The roast beef, asked... More

Wednesday 21 Dec 16, my husband and I came for the day to Deddington to do a bit of xmas food shopping at the famous 'Eagles Deli', which has a most wonderful selection of provender. Whilst we were in Deddington, we popped in for lunch at the Deddington Arms Restaurant. We have stayed there in the past and it is... More

I just managed to avoid giving this place only one star but it was touch and go. We are on a business trip which has taken us (in this order) to Paris, The Deddington Arms (this hotel/restaurant), Vauxhall in London, Ticehurst in Kent, Reims and then Macon both back in France. The stay at this place was by far the... More

Thank you for this review which has sufficient specific complaints to enable us to use it in our on-going staff training programme. This was a quiet Sunday evening following on from a manic Sunday afternoon when we had served over 100 meals on bookings of 60. We were understaffed for the evening but that was our problem and shouldn't have... More
