“Good quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Nice country pub and restaurant with good parking and quality food at reasonable prices.
This pub once called the Moody Cow doesn't seem to change some at all, which is a fairly good thing in this case. The ale selection is not to my liking, it's a pity as there are a number of fairly local breweries they could choose from e.g. Hooky and Purity and yet they choose not very good ones from the West Country!
The food however is good but having just been for Sunday Lunch, while the food was very good we were surprised at being presented with everything on the plate including gravy! My wife doesn't like gravy and I don't like carrots, so please don't put gravy and vegetables on the plate, rather a side dish.
I would certainly recommend this gastro pub for a nice meal out.

“Best food within miles, by miles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We dine here regularly, and often bring guests who are always impressed. It isn't fast food, because it is all cooked to order, but well worth waiting for.
The atmosphere is warm and friendly, with attentive staff in a lovely old building.
The very best of local produce, beautifully cooked, nicely served, and a pleasure to eat. Congratulations to Damian and Debbie for making The Wykham such a great place.

“Best gastropub in North Oxfordshire”

The current owners have created a fantastic pub come restaurant, with food of the highest quality. Nothing is too much trouble. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Wykham Arms Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Lunch for 4. Local sausage, cheese omelette and Thai chicken curry. All very good and good portions for normal people. Beer good too. Very friendly service, food cooked to order and served hot on very warm plates in a lovely garden area. Definitely recommend and revisit.
