We came here for a family event and what a wonderful little country village pub! A lovely traditional stone building, with a bar and lounge plus a large beer garden. They do excellent local ales and the event food was great. Recommend.

Unlike the TV series, this Little Britain is no joke, but is a fine public house tucked away in a remote village and down a quiet cul-de-sac lane. Family owned, we were served by the son, who had all the customer service skills that can...More

I frequently meet up with old colleagues at the Dun Cow. It's a fabulous pub. Ambience is great. The service and food is consistently very good indeed. I never leave her disappointed. Very good value.

This little Gem is off the beaten track and everything you'd hope for in a traditional pub, the food is awesome (especially the curry's) and the atmosphere is very welcoming. Highly recommended.

A traditional Village Pub & Kitchen in the heart of the village of Hornton, North Oxfordshire. Comfortable, relaxed, welcoming and informal, we offer a range of cask ales, lagers, ciders and a carefully chosen wine list, most of which are available by the glass.Been walking or gardening all morning? Just leave your boots by the door and warm your feet by the fire. What about the kids? We think that they should be welcomed, not just tolerated.Just want a quiet drink, not a three course meal? Well, that’s fine by us but we do also serve unique and outstanding food. We buy superb ingredients directly from farmers & producers (mostly within a 30 mile radius of the pub) and we cook them in a way that lets their freshness and quality shine through. We’re also serious about seasonality and our menus are completely changed every month to reflect all that is freshest and at its best right now.
