Every time I come to this pub I always wonder why it has taken me so long to come back. We had a super Sunday roast, the service as usual was quick and efficient. The owner was charming and understanding when I phoned ahead to say we would be delayed. The bar staff were helpful, and had a cheerful welcome.... More

Visited for my wife's birthday and had great meal. From moment we arrived staff were very friendly and gave great customer service, top marks. Menu is small but offers some great dishes. We shared pate to start which was excellent and didn't come with the usual limp lettuce leaf and piece of tomato/cucumber; it was simple toasted bread, pate and... More

We visited this country pub early on a Monday evening with friends. There were only 4 other diners which did not give a good atmosphere but was only to be expected. However the staff and food were excellent. It was a small menu with a good specials board. The prices were reasonable and we enjoyed our meals. The liver, bacon... More

Another fantastic day was had while watching the brilliant John Coghlan play in the fasinating little pub in the middle of Oxfordshire! Great Pub, always a pleasure visiting and we always enjoy ourselves! We look forward to visiting every year.

I had Bank Holiday lunch with my family. The food and service were excellent. Great old fashioned English pub, lovely and cosy with the fires lit as it was a rainy day. The ONLY disappointment was the portion sizes. None of my family are overweight, but when you go out for a pub lunch you expect a good size portion... More

Travelled a 200 mile round trip to this pub for JCQ's gig in his local. It is really tiny and most fans were stood outside watching through the window....literally. We had a great time, the staff are very friendly and we felt welcome. Beautiful village and the locals really didn't seem to mind their pub invaded by mad Status Quo... More

Super little country pub. Very friendly staff and great food. We went for Sunday lunch and it's a long time since I had such a good one - truly delicious. Historic bread and butter pudding too!
