My friend and I (two women walking Offa's Dyke) were very happy we chose this place. The food was terrific and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The pub doesn't look particularly inviting on the outside, but once inside we felt at home and were warmly welcomed by the owner. My trout was delicious and perfectly cooked.

We had a great time at The Oxford Inn - thoroughly enjoyed the pub atmosphere & delicious food. Service at the bar was always with a smile. The landlord & landlady have created a special pub - and we loved staying here. We miss British pubs now we live in the USA!
The accommodation was very nice, lots of tea, coffee & biscuits in the room. Nice toiletries supplied, and even a sewing kit. Lovely & clean.
Parts of the building are 17th century, which must be kept in mind when you stay. This is not a Premier Inn or similar chain hotel - this is a building with character.
We will definitely return on future visits to the UK.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms, one ensuite & 2 with private bathrooms across the corridor.

The Oxford Arms was a great place to stay! The manager is fantastic; he let me bring my bike inside the back room, then gave me local beer to sample :) My room was large, clean, and the bed was comfortable. The adjoining shower was excellent, with lots of hot water :) I had a great evening in the pub with a lovely dinner and then a great breakfast in the morning. Seriously, this place is fabulous and, most importantly, the owner/manager is a great guy and will make you feel immediately welcome.

Ignore the shabby exterior and give this place a go!
Wobbly creaky floors but a good size room with a small shower room next door.
My double bed was great but my mates single was grubby, the bed linen was yucky.
The landlord here is a star! He really does put the customer first.
Great service and a smashing evening meal.
Breakfast was fantastic with a great packed lunch.
These digs have a lot going for them.

When you walk in the door of this place, you might be inclined to walk right back out agin. Don't! The service is friendly and efficient and the food is very good indeed. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the bill too. Give it a go. I think you'll be glad you did.

The four of us plus the dog stumbled in here after a long day's walking and in need of big food. We got it - a huge slice of proper homemade pie with thick gravy, an enormous pile of chips and fresh, perfectly cooked veg. That plus being offered a sample of the local ales before we chose our pint of choice made this an absolutely top pub. I'd go back any day.

We had great beer and wonderful food - perfect for two foot weary and hungry walkers. This pub is full of character. I thoroughly recommend it - do not miss!
