Description: Sturdy's Castle Country Inn, located between the West Oxfordshire villages of Tackley & Kidlington and conveniently located near to Woodstock, can not only offer its visitors comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation and quality cuisine in its 80 seat restaurant, but also a friendly and relaxing bar lounge in which to enjoy a drink with friends and family. Sturdy's Castle is the perfect setting for those seeking somewhere to stay close to the many of Oxfordshire's delightful tourist attractions. Located just outside of Kidlington on the A4260 Oxford to Banbury Road, Sturdy's Castle sits at the gateway to the Cotswolds, boasting some of Britain's most beautiful countryside, towns & villages. Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of Winston Churchill, can be found less than 3 miles away in the charming market town of Woodstock; and the famous dreaming spires of the internationally renowned university city of Oxford are also a mere 9 miles away

“Great food and service at reasonable prices. Good parking.”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We as a family always choose Sturdy's Castle as our 'go to place' for meet-ups and catch ups. The service is always good - quick and friendly; the food is excellent - plenty of choice and very good quality; the prices are reasonable and the facilities are good. There is plenty of parking and the toilets are of a good standard. There is a separate bar area with pool table, etc. if you are just wanting a drink and there is also accommodation available on site as well.
I would highly recommend Sturdy's if you are after good quality pub food at reasonable prices.

“good portions but basic pub food.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The prices are reasonable and the portions are good but it is your basic pub grub.
We went as a family with 2 kids and 2 adults, they had a good kids menu but not much choice for a vegitarian except for a range of baked potatoes [ which were huge! ]
So not a place for amazing food.. more to fill you up at a reasonable price.

“Still great value”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

Sturdy's is a pub/restaurant that has existed for many years & at one time was known as the Spud pub. Way back then food was good traditional stuff & I'm sure they prided themselves on presenting diners with a meal so good & large that it would beat them. Its been a while sine we went & whilst things have changed over the years one thing hasn't & that is the great food. It still beats most people!! But it is also still good wholesome stuff & great value. The beer is good too.
