“Good Sunday Roast”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We called in without having booked a table and were welcomed very warmly, had a delicious 2 course Sunday lunch and left very happy. It's true you can certainly get a cheaper roast elsewhere, however this one is particular good, worth a visit!

“Interesting menu”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Interesting menu - advisable to book a table as may not be able to accommodate if you just walk in ... pleasant service, prices not the cheapest but local, quality food was served - in other words you get what you pay for. Nice gastro pub.

“Inviting pub in a quaint village”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have lived in the area for 6 months and can't believe we had not eaten here before. The food was extremely good thoughtful and executed beautifully. The Pub itself is very warm and inviting with a large fire and comfortable interior. I had the posh pate, it was wonderful. We also tried the sirloin steak, again beautiful piece of beef, coupled with the chunky chips it was a delight. Lastly, the staff are very attentive, friendly and professional. They only add to the ambience and character. We will become frequent visitors.

“Old English Gem with modern menu”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We went here for lunch as a last minute idea. This is a wonderful place with all the trappings of an old english pub but with a modern menu which was varied. The service was good and we were made to feel welcome. Nothing was too much to do.
This is not a cheap place so if you want to back pack I suggest you go elsewhere. All the food is freshly cooked and the prices are clear to see. Wonderful fresh fish.

Worth a visit and look out for the theme nights.

“Warm memories of Oxford Arms”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Sophisticated food, thoughtful wine list. Unforegettable risotto and fish. Smell of real wood burning in the fireplace. Elegant and cosy atmosphere of old Britain. I only regret living far and not being able to come here every Friday night, especially now, in the autumn when it rains and you tend to get caught in the blues... I sincerely recommend to spend an evening here. Although I travel over Europe quite extensively, this is a very special nostalgic place where I want to come back again and again.
