Reviews - The Duke of Cumberland's Head

3Self Classified Small Hotel Ratings explained
Clifton, Banbury, OX15 0PE
The Duke of Cumberland's Head is a beautiful thatched village inn that dates from the seventeenth century. It has five bedrooms which have been decorated to a high standard. The price of the rooms includes a continental breakfast including boiled eggs, cereals, fresh fruit, toast, tea and coffee. Cooked breakfast is available at the weekends.

Our excellent chefs have created a delicious menu which is their interpretation of traditional pub food. The menu constantly evolves and is complemented by our specials board which reflects whatever the kitchen has sourced that day, from game and fish to locally-sourced vegetables and meat. The full menu is available 12-2:30, 6:30-9:30.

Beyond the end of the garden, there are beautiful walks through the North Oxfordshire countryside and the pub is a perfect place to stay for a weekend, being perfectly situated for Bicester village, Oxford, Chipping Norton and The Cotswolds. The pub is only five miles from junction 10 of the M40.

Quick stopover
We booked this hotel as a stopover on our way south to London. It was a wee bit further off the motorway than we thought but still very handy. We planned to arrive early enough for dinner as it looked like a great place to eat but unfortunately we were held up and didn't start our journey on time. We ended up being very late but after calling the hotel they were very friendly and helpful. They stayed open and waited for us to arrive and even directed us when we got a bit lost.
Friendly greeting on arrival and we were showed to our room. It was clean and perfect for an overnight stop. Breakfast was included and was good - boiled eggs on the continental which was a nice surprise. Checked out by a different member of staff who was also very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this hotel - great value.

Maybe it was the snow!!
Admittedly the country was snowbound but I appeared to be the only person staying! Staff were very personable and the room OK for the price paid if a little cold on arrival. I was the only one eating and drinking in the bar - again a bit of a strange experience - but the food was good, the beer excellent and the log fire very warming.

quasi perfetto!
La camera spaziosa, calda, pulita (eccetto per un ragno gigante in bagno, ma siamo in campagna!) letti confortevoli. Nessun rumore nonostante sia sopra ad un pub
abbiamo cenato nel pub tutte le sere, cibo delizioso!
I proprietari simpatici e disponibilissimi.
a parte la disavventura con il ragno il soggiorno è stato perfetto!

Tranquilidad y buena relación calidad-precio
Un lugar muy tranquilo y bien situado para conocer todo un entorno lleno de naturaleza y pueblos con mucho encanto. Buena atención y servicio. Quizá deberían mejorar las moquetas de la habitación, que estaban algo deterioradas, y el café en el desayuno. Buena relación calidad-precio
