Having been recommended to us as the only decent place to get food in the area we proceeded hopeful of a great meal. How disappointed we were ! Yet again Banbury fails to provide.

Service for drinks ? I had to go to the bar myself during dinner,
Only one starter ordered , usual loads of bread and not much crab.
Two mains ordered, well where do you start ? Let's try though.

Frozen chips poorly cooked.
Steak was tough and grisly, I managed to get half of it eaten.
Some green beens and a pot of beans the size 1/2 a ramekin.
2 standard drinks each , no wine and a bill for £60+.

Not a restaurant, glorified pub grub.

Came across this pub whilst travelling through country lanes, which was recommended to us by a friendly gentleman in nearby village. Food was excellent, very good portion sizes, so don't understand a previous review, as both my partner's portion and my own was more than enough.
Damien was very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend the fish and chips. Will definitely go back to the Wykham Arms and also visit the lovely countryside.

the situation of the wykham arms is lovely but the food and service very average. The portion size was on the side of minimum and the service was inexperienced.

A summer's evening drive through North Oxfordshire's fine countryside took us to the Wykham Arms. A good welcome took us promptly to our table. This is both a restaurant and a village pub - a nice mix - and plenty of people were enjoying a warm evening on the pub terrace.
The wine list has a good selection of wines by the glass - always an asset. The staff are pleasant and friendly and our orders were soon taken. English asparagus and fresh crab were our starters followed by sea bream and lamb rump with chorizo; creme brulee for dessert - all delicious. Although it's a bit of a journey for us to come here for dinner it is really well worthwhile. We had previously come for lunch in winter, very different circumstances but a very enjoyable meal then - we're glad we came back and certainly will do so again.
