About the hotel
Situated in The Vale of the While Horse, off the A420 between Oxford and Swindon, Uffington is about 8 miles north of the M4 through Lambourne, of race-horse fame. The nearest Market Towns are Faringdon and Wantage, each about 15 minutes' drive. Shrivenham Defence Academy is just 3 miles away at the Watchfield roundabout on the A420.
The Village has a 13th Century Church, shop and Post Office, and several literary connections. It was the early home of Thomas Hughes, whose renowned book "Tom Brown's Schooldays" begins in the old school here. It is now an interesting little museum. John Betjeman lived here in the 1930's and 40's, during which time he wrote many famous works. Tolkein, while based in Oxford, visited this area, and it is said much of his inspiration for Middle Earth came from the Ridgeway nearby. An ideal base for walking, cycling, horse-riding, angling, visiting historic properties, golfing, or just chilling out at any time of the year. Warm welcome, caring staff, log fire, high standards, excellent food and selection of fine beverages, including Real Ales. Well-behaved dogs welcome.

Top Room lovely landlord
Arrived and booked in and was told the chef was off this evening however they booked us in to a pub down the road for dinner, gave us a lift there and collected us afterwards.
Couldn't have been more helpful. Had a couple or 5 pints in the bar when we returned and a very comfy nights sleep. The only thing that let it down was the breakfast was a bit sparse and not worth a tenner each however as the chef had let him down again this may have had something to do with it. Overall I would stay here again as it was so friendly quiet and comfy.
Overall an excellent place to stay,we were welcomed and felt very comfortable.our room was clean and well presented the only downside was no internet in the room.the food was hot and ample proportions and very nice.
