This hotel is a real find. We live in the village and choose to eat and drink here rather than the red cow since it changed hands last year. The drinks are cheaper and the wine is of a much higher quality than the cheap paint stripper served at the pub. The food has always been amazing and very reasonably... More

Totally amazing from the moment you walk in till you leave. We walked in and we had an amazing welcome from the lady behind the bar, we ordered drinks, we were told to find any table to sit at, she brought our menus over, we ordered food. It came out I ordered the The Red Cow cheese burger and my... More

Very good quality and presentation, big portions (I couldn't even finish it!) really tasty meals. Compared to London prices, it's really good value for the quality!

Heading back from a business meeting I remembered a hotel that I stayed at last year, just off the M40 Nr Bicester, not one for liking motorway food I booked a table for one. I'm glad I did as I had a great steak from the bar menu, having not opted to eat from the A la Carte menu as... More

Fabulous food, beautiful presentation and an ambient restaurant. Staff were attentive and the service was spot on. If I wanted to be very 'picky', my lamb was a little pinker than I would normally eat, nonetheless it was tasty and succulent.Highly recommended.

Arrived at 12.45 to meet the rest of the family for my mothers birthday lunch expecting the full roast and trimmings. Was booked by my father stating that we wanted Sunday lunch. The website promises good good but on arrival we were told the chef was on holiday and that they were running a very reduced menu. This was not... More

Took my wife here for lunch with my daughter on her birthday. Food was good, but not outstanding. Wine reasonably priced. Only one girl on in the restaurant, but as we were the only diners, to be expected. The chips with my steak, looked like they were pre-cooked and zapped in a microwave (burnt the roof of my mouth). On... More

The Chef was obviously experienced and the presentation was good. Most of the food was nicely cooked but the steak was flat and thin, not like surloin usually is and the taste not so good. The rump of Lamb was tasty but half of it was fat.
