Oxfordshire's answer to Jamaica Inn?
Slightly remote location, since it was a former coaching inn, I guess.
Not all rooms have iron bedsteads but ours did, and it was very squeaky, although comfortable. The host is very jovial with a quirky SOH, and he can certainly cook up a good dinner and breakfast. Free wifi in bar area. The communal areas were nicely furnished and comfortable, and the young staff were friendly and professional.
Warm welcome awaits
We stayed at the pub for 3 nights, the spacious and warm room was set in a courtyard away from the pub which was lovely.
There was a very warm welcome on arrival, food was fantastic and a lovely open fire in the bar. Loved waking up to the sounds of birds singing and a horse in the field outside the rear window. Thanks Bill for a really nice stay.
Perfectly fine for the price.
Stayed one night as was going to a friend's party a few miles away.
It's in a bit of a bleak spot, and right by the main road, so not a place to hang around for the weekend, but perfectly fine for an overnight stay.
The staff member who showed us to the room was friendly and polite. The room was upstairs, and looked out over the car park and beyond. The stairs were a bit creaky, but I guess that would only have bothered those downstairs. It was a freezing night but there was plenty of heating available (central heating plus an electric heater which we made full use of). The room was smallish but reasonably clean although I did notice a dead bumble bee behind the bin and since this was February so it must have been there for months!. Bedding was fine, and it the tea and coffee making equipment worked OK - although there was no decaf coffee. Breakfast was good - bacon, eggs, sausages and toast were all fine (sausages can be iffy in cheaper places but were perfectly good here), and they did have decaf coffee available. Didn't try the restaurant in the evening, so cannot comment on that.
great place to stay, will definitely come again
Great welcome, everyone really friendly.
Room spacious, clean and very comfortable. First class
just like to say what nice and comfortable stay we had fantastic food and a what a fantastic host bill was.
Friendly staff, room a little "tired".
Slightly eccentric? Hah!
I hope the proprieter was aiming for 'Slightly eccentric' (see review November 2013), or his nose will have been put out of joint either way.
Seriously though, I can't recommend this inn highly enough. The welcome has always been warm, even at my unsociable hours of arrival, and the food excellent. Hoping to have a reason to stay there again soon.
We have just returned to Shropshire having enjoyed a three day break at the Merrymouth with Bill,Mo and all their young and friendly staff.
We had a great welcome to a very pleasant room
No 7 with open views to the fields to the rear and a comfortable seating area in the garden to the front where we enjoyed an afternoon drink. All the food was superb and we would definitely recommend the hotel in general and the restaurant especially. We look forward to returning in the very near future. All the best and see you soon Gill & Peter Grindley.
great for a short break
A great welcome - remembered our names the next day which was nice.
A really comfy bed so got an excellent nights sleep.
Warm friendly staff and amazing food!!
We wished we had more than 1 night here, great location and food was really good.
