You need to up grade your network. Up grade, upgraded upgrade Get a grip you are so out dated. dated. The info on the right isn't true it's going to be refurbished in 2017 and will take at least 9 months then will reopen under an entirely new name.

I found it best to leave the premises when the man apparently managing the establishment chose to attack me verbally for using the rest room without asking, and before I ordered a drink. A most unpleasant gentleman indeed.

We visited using a voucher from a local promotion. We were surprised that this charming little pub was not busier; it is on the through route from Oxford to the m40 so would make a good stop off point for people on their travels. The menu was somewhat limited but given the amazing value of the voucher we couldn't complain!...

They keep a very good pint of beer from Ramsbury, with two regular ales and a guest. We have eaten there 3 times now. We have been twice for Sunday lunch, which...

I like this pub - have for the last two years. Its just reopened under new management and has undergone a facelift - but not too much as to ruin its charm. The kitchen is not yet open but the bar staff is very friendly and attentive. I talked with one of the new owners who was very nice and...

The room smelt of damp, and even the front door was rotten. Never again. May be good for a bite to eat or a drink in the pub, but would not...

The Blacks Head Inn was extremely welcoming on Thursday afternoon when we needed a snack. We saw the sign for cream teas and what we were served was better than alot of country hotel offer.
