We have visited this pub many times but this is the first time we have stayed overnight and it was a real pleasure. In very few buildings do you get a genuine sense of antiquity but you do here {Although the rooms could perhaps have furniture that reflected this a bit more rather than the 1970s style at present]. All...

I've always loved this place but lunch was ruined by a difficult and sullen Manager. For some bizarre reason the entire menu has gone gluten free; the bread board was virtually inedible and so sent it back uneaten. The Manager communicated via his genuinely charming, and embarrassed, waitress that he wasn't going to take the charge off the bill. In...

My girlfriend and I took a weekend away here , set in a very beautiful little village which is perfect for some peace and quiet. The hotel itself is really nice lovely bar and very comfy clean rooms !

What a wonderful gem of a pub: great service; fabulous location; unbelievablely good, reasonably priced food. The ensuite bedrooms were comfortable and clean too, with plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate sachets. However, it must be said that the ensuite bathroom is very small. A great place to stay: we will be back!

Excellent location good food and choice of beers, quirky rooms which would possibly restrict some large people and a spiral staircase which could be challenging although we were ok with it. The floorboards all creaked just as a building of this age and character should do Overall an enjoyable stay

We stayed on a Friday night and the overall rating is a result of some things good and some things not so good so I could not quite bring myself to rate it very good. From other reviews it would seem almost a Marmite establishment as it seems either greatly loved or hated so I am a rare in betweener....

This is easily the worst place we have ever stayed in. It is unbelievably NOISY. The bedrooms & bathrooms are FILTHY. The 'owners' are deeply unpleasant & unhelpful. Staying here was an extraordinarily horrible experience & one which nearly ruined our visit to Oxfordshire. We wouldn't dream of eating here having had such a horrible 'reception' from the 'owners'.

Excellent staff. Very pretty and beautiful location. Good food. Bed could do with improvement (size and quality of mattress). Proper old local pub with friendly local people that like a drink and dogs sat by the your feet. We loved it!!

The village of Great Tew is simply beautiful, and the Falklands Arms drips history and character, with exposed beams, wonky staircases and creaky doors - very atmospheric. The lady who was in charge was lovely and very helpful, but there seemed to be a shortage of staff so that our rooms weren't serviced and the chef seemed to be stretched...

You really must experience this pub, whether it's to stay or just for a drink. Always welcoming and just full of character and characters 😀I've stayed several times and never been disappointed. Good range of beers, wines and lagers and excellent food.
