Attentive service, good food and good value. AThe table next to us was a little noisy but I can hardly blame the staff for that. All round a great meal enjoyed by us all. Good friendly service with a helpful can do attitude.

The rooms at the Dinton Hermit are individual, cosy and comfortable, although our room (room 4) had a TINY bathroom that could have done with some attention as it was looking a little tired in places.

The best thing about the Dinton Hermit is the cosy pub and excellent restaurant area. A large inglenook fire created a warm and friendly environment in the bar. The food in the restaurant was excellent despite catering for a large group, I would certainly eat here again as it was delicious.

Stayed one night with evening meal and breakfast. Charming place with lovely log fire in the bar/restaurant. Room was lovely warm and comfortable with complimentary tea, coffee and water. The restaurant food and service excellent as was breakfast with a great choice. We had a lovely relaxing break in great surroundings. HIghly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building on first floor, which was great.

We recently stayed at this charming old hotel using a national deal. We were greeted by a friendly welcome and stayed in rank of cottages away from the building. Our room had a very modern touch . Very clean . Nice shower but no bath The locatiion is very quiet a cosy lounge and very pleasant restaurant . The food and service in the restauarnt was excellent . Some very nice wine also . Breakfast again was very good. I can recommend the eggs benedict !! The yoiung lady who looked after reception , the bar and service in the restaurant did a truly magnificent job. She recommended a visit to Thame last Tuesday which coincided with market day . A really good old fashioned market in a very pleasant town. A most enjoyable time .
