“Very Nice”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Very nice village pub/hotel. The room looked like it had recently refurbished. It was fitted out to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. There was no food available at night, but there were other options close by and the staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast was a bit average, but it wouldn't put me off staying again.

Booked in for a one night stay over the bank holiday weekend. Have to say the room was fanstatic - beautifully furnished with the most amazing power shower and spotlessly clean. The pub had a good atmosphere and the locals were welcoming. The bar menu is limited but good basic homecooked fare but perhaps could be improved with a wider / more varied selection.

All in all a grea stay and would recommend as a good stop over point.

Great beer, reasonably priced food and drinks (much cheaper than the other two pubs in Shrivenham!). Would certainly recommend, also free darts and a pool table makes it a great place for a few drinks.

I came here with a friend on a quiet night, we we're served promtley and to a high standard.

We both ordered a burger and chips which was very tasty two beef burgers in a bun with cheese and bacon was very nice.

wide selection of beers and ciders and a pool table was good to have a drink and a catch up before dinner came.

I would recomend this place as a more casual place to have some food rather than a night out kind of meal.

This is certainly not a place to eat, the food and service are very poor.
The lunch time menu is lacking ,my colleague had an omelette which bounced off of the plate and the soup was tasteless, the service was helpful but really needs some attention.
Coffee is on offer at the bar, and offers 5 different types all taste the same.

Change the chief is my view and better staff training.

Used the Barrington Arms for a couple of nights, and found it a very nice place to stay.

Clean, quiet rooms (had a room toward the courtyard) and amazing space for staying more than a few days. Bathrooms are top of the line, and ample supplies of hot water for showers. Great.

Hosts are very nice and accomodating, helping you out with whatever you have questions about, and serving great breakfast to order. Excellent.
