“Lovely quaint restaurant”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

Starters were very nice , I had the wild mushrooms which were really tasty and Debbie had a mozzarella salad with crispy Palma ham , we both had a steak which was cooked perfect and was dry aged which is always the best way to mature steak , only slight critism was the frites I should have ordered triple cooked chips , that said the food , the place and the service was spot on and will defo go again .

“Consistently fantastic food”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

This is my fourth or fifth trip to Otters, this time sharing a table with my son. Lovely food, excellent service, and very reasonable. I cannot fault this place.

“Fabulous food!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 via mobile

We had lunch in the Otter restaurant whilst staying in Deddington for the weekend. We were given a warm welcome when we arrived and had a great table by the window overlooking the village.
My starter was the avocado, mozzarella and tomato salad which was lovely. For the main course I had salmon and haddock goujons which were cooked to perfection. We resisted a desert but they looked really tasty. My partners meal was also delicious. It's a great little restaurant in a lovely village and well worth a visit.

“Great Shame”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

We found this place one lunchtime by chance a few weeks ago. We had no reservation (as we had no idea where we would be at lunchtime) but a table was no problem. The food was exquisite - different, beautifully prepared and presented, subtly flavoured. A real find and, even though it is a bit off our beaten track, we said we would go again. We tried again at lunchtime today: what a difference. We had just driven 150 miles on a cold, wet windy May morning and were really looking forward to a treat. We had not known when, or even if, we would arrive but didn't anticipate a problem in view of our previous experience. How wrong can you be. An apologetic "I'm sorry but we're fully booked" would have been fine. A brusque "I'm expecting other people for those tables" was completely unacceptable. It is, of course, the proprietor's prerogative to behave as he wishes on his own premises. Equally, it is ours to make sure that, if, as appeared to be the case, unexpected customers are unwelcome, we let those people to whom we had recommended the place, know the latest situation. We won't go again.
