Thank you to you and your staff for making a lonely business traveller feel very welcome.

I visited your establishment by chance on 7 June, where I treated myself to some fine ale and a wonderful peppered steak pie. Having enjoyed the ambiance, fare and company so much, I returned the following night for more ale and a BBQ beef and cheddar cheese pie, again an excellent experience.

Whilst my waistline is now suffering, I can honestly say that the food, value for money, surroundings, friendliness of customers and staff plus the politeness and attitude of the staff is excellent. A credit to you and your business.

If my visit to Deddington were longer, I would certainly be back again tonight!

Scrummy and huge! Can never finish a whole one but they're so good that my partner has no problem in finishing mine off as well as his own!

Myself and the husband to be have a slight addiction to this quaint little pub and travel about 40 minutes to enjoy the delights they have on offer!

The pie's are huge but of a great quality and the price is very good too!

We always try to leave room for desert as the Apple Pie is too die for and although we walk out stuffed to the brim we know that we have enjoyed every last bite!

Would definitely recommend

Slight downfall is if you want to book a table you can not- this isn't great if you want to enjoy a family celebration as you just can not organise anything and would love to have the flexibility to do this for birthdays/celebrations.

We first discovered Puddingface through their Banbury kitchen (sadly now closed) but this - the original - is as top notch as that one was and we are really glad we won't have to do without our Puddingface pies. I can't speak highly enough about the chicken and mushroom pie- usually because I am too busy eating it. Yes, it's huge and yes, each time I am convinced I'll never get through it - yet I always do and plenty of the veg besides. Lovely space (cosy without feeling crowded - something a lot of places seem to struggle with), delicious food served in generous portions and a welcoming staff for whom nothing is any trouble. Super value for the price too.
