I had such a lovely stay at the Inn at Emmington. The service was great as well as the food being excellent. It was the best nights sleep I've had in a long time. The bar was really sociable and was able to meet some of the locals. Would recommend anyone to stay there.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2008

We were looking to escape for the weekend and decided on Oxford/Bucks. We found several websites, amongst which was the Inn at Emmington. Luckily for us the first 2 we tried to ring on Saturday morning didn't answer; the Inn did and we booked an overnight stay with dinner. The owners have only recently taken over the inn and are still decorating; the rooms are simple, of average size but well equipped and very comfortable with en suite bathroom (being refurbished) and a large bar/restaurant area, simply and well decorated with some very comfortable sofas and chairs. There is also a bar used by the villagers and a beautiful garden, with again comfortable seating and perfect for a spring evening drink. The food however, is definitely worth going for. We dined alone and this was a real shame as the food is well above average; short menu, very well cooked and using local ingredients; my locally produced lamb cutlets with red jus with bubble and squeak doesn't represent in words just how excellent it was. Hot, delicious, a perfect dish! My husband's duck with rhubarb sauce was equally excellent. We had 3 courses and then coffee and brandies in the lovely squashy sofas in the bar, with good jazz/ratpack background music. We thoroughly enjoyed this (very reasonably priced) break and more people should be eating here!

  • Liked — Welcoming landlord; excellent food and service
  • Disliked — Bathroom might benefit from an upgrade and power shower
  • Stayed April 2008, traveled as a couple
