“Good home cooking & friendly pub”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

This placed is advertised as serving good home cooked food .. and it does it extremely well. There is nothing pretentious about the food .. it is just really well cooked and really tasty with generous portions at sensible prices.

It is also a really friendly village pub that feels like home

“Superb Steaks”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Returned to the Old olive Bush after several months absence - steaks are still the best we have found in a pub - pies are excellent, beers well kept and friendly locals. All in all an excellent traditional pub D&S 18/10

“Friendly village pub”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Good food, beer and atmosphere with a beautiful garden to sit in - what more could you want! Booking a table is recommended if you want to eat. 15 minute walk from the canal (up hill but down hill on the way back). Thursday night is quiz night .

“Rural pub within walking distance of the Oxford Canal.”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

Nice friendly pub with attentive staff. Good range of meals suiting all culniary types including vegitarians and children. Keep space for the puddings - a lovely choice of the best British puds. We walked up from the Oxford Canal so well within reach of passing narrowboats and well worth the effort. I would visit again!

Thank you for your review, we do try to offer a varied pub grub style menu and appreciate your kind words. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to welcoming you here again.
In order to avoid disappointment for others reading this though, I would like to advise that due to the size of our premises, we apply an adult only rule in the restaurant on Friday & Saturday evenings and do not specifically cater for children.
