Great base for visiting Oxford

This hotel was a great find, we were 4 couples visiting Oxford for our annual weekend away.

The hotel has great character and the rooms are spacious and have an individual feel, not like many modern chain hotels, a bonus for myself was the inclusion of a cafetiere and ground coffee. We ate a snack lunch and an evening meal in the restaurant and both were excellent, there was a good selection of cask ales and spirits served by efficient bar staff. The inclusive breakfast with choice of cereals, fruit, full english, eggs benedict etc. was also well received. Given the location (15-20 minutes from Oxford centre) the price was very reasonable. We would all definitely stay again.

A great place to stay.

Good food. Helpful staff. One small criticism was very patchy wifi in our room. Room 1 in the annexe. We'd definitely stay here again.

An excellent stay in a very old pub.

The room was very comfortable with plenty of space and a sofa to sit on to watch TV. There were lots of little extras.

Punting in oxford

Beautiful village location, wonderful room, gorgeous food and wine, delightful staff.

Fantastic food, great service and lovely room.

The food here is stunning.

Our evening meal was sublime. And full English in the morning was very good too. Service from staff was excellent and the room was lovely. We were lucky enough to have room 8 which was essentially a top floor flat. Lovely period features such as beams, old wooden doors and winding staircase.
