Travelled from Somerset to take my mother for her 91st birthday lunch. Remembered there was a good pub in East Hendred and wasn't disappointed with The Eyston Arms. We had a 20 minute wait after ordering starters (tomato and fennel soup and scotch egg with paprika sauce) which was fine - both very good. I had cold rare Oxfordshire beef... More

My wife and I arrived on Sunday to find the restaurant very busy. However we were asked to bear with them for a few minutes until a table was vacant. We had not booked but a vacant table was soon found. The staff were very polite and attentive. We ordered the roast beef and gammon steak. Both were really well... More

We have visited the Eyston Arms on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff are always very efficient and friendly, the menu is varied with some personal favourites being the superfood salad. The meals are not overly expensive but also aren't cheap. The quality is worth it though. Will hopefully be back soon.

Having come here for a business dinner, I ordered a rump steak (20 pounds) and toffee pudding for dessert (7 pounds). The steak was fresh, but just ok. The dessert was actually quite good. As we were a group, we were well looked after by the waiters.

Very warm welcome, highly efficient service and an extensive and attractive menu. Not our first visit and certainly not our last. We were entertaining friends to the best of local hospitality and they were not disappointed. Pubs don't get much better than this! The cost was approximately £40 a head for pre-lunch drinks, a 3 course a la carte meal,... More

We then sat down to lunch; I had to pil pil prawns with chips and salad - which were absolutely delicious and my friend had the curry which she said was really good too.

We decide to give this pub a chance to redeem itself for Valentine's Day for which there was a special menu which looked pretty attractive. The introductory bubbles arrived as did the the very tasty chestnut and wild mushroom soup with truffle oil and parmesan. No bread was provided. Not having enormous appetites, we decided on just one starter to... More
