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.

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.

Very enjoyable stay
Excellent place to stay after a day's work. Nice country pub; good ales and superb food (no pub grub!). Minor thing: mend shower in room 2 where I stayed and put up heating before guest's arrival.

The Duke
Very friendly staff.Room 'oldy worldly' quaint and good value for the price.The evening meal was very excellent quality.The breakfast was 'continental' and although rather disorganised was again good value.
Would stay again if ever back in the area.

Lack of hot water was a bit of an issue, but other than that what an accommodating place. Excellent staff, lovely setting

Couldn't fault the accommodation. Warm welcome. Large room, with excellent en suite facilities. Big comfotable double bed. Didn't sample the evening meal as meeting friends elsewhere, but the menu looked wonderful.Good value.
Will certainly stay here again.
