I've not been into the Blenheim for a long time was interested in some of the reviews. Well, from the moment we walked in I can say I was impressed. The staff were really friendly and went out if their way to please. We ate in the bar area and had a delicious Athens pizza which had goats cheese and red onion chutney accompanied by a portion of chunky chips and a side salad. The food was well presented and very tasty. There was a good selection of wines and a lovely pint of Oxford gold. Well done to the staff at the Blenheim , we will definitely be back.

Thank Pete B

Just enjoyed a brilliant Friday night meal of fish and chips as a family at the Blenheim house. The food was really well cooked and very tasty. The staff were all very friendly and conscientious. The atmosphere was relaxing and we were made to feel very welcome, along with our 3 year old daughter. The fish and chip deal on a Friday night is really good value. They also do very good puddings and coffee!

We visited the Blenheim on Valentines Day evening for the Valentines Special meal. Having posted a poor review following a previous visit over a year a go, I thought it fair to submit another after our Valentines meal.
The menu was excellent with something for every taste ( I went vegetarian) and have to say the food was fantastic. I still don't know how we managed to finish the shared pudding platter. The service was really good, we had a drink in the bar first and the menu was bought out to us, with no rush to go through to the restaurant and sit down. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and heart shaped chocolates and confetti decorated the tables. All in all we had a lovely evening and baby sitter permitting will hopefully be returning soon.

We visited as a large group of 20 for my mums 90th birthday for Sunday lunch which we had booked in advance
The welcome and service were spot on and we had a large room set up just for us which was good
The food was tasty and beautifully presented,and although the portions were not large the amount was adequate;the wine list had a reasonable choice to suit all tastes and wallets;the menu itself was somewhat limited however and not the cheapest for a Sunday lunch but we were aware of this before booking and felt there was sufficient choice for most palates
The restaurant itself was clean and tastefully decorated to make the most of the original features and had a small outside courtyard.
We would definitely visit again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone in the area

I came here for my birthday with the family. The setting and decor was lovely and felt relaxing, and they were accommodating for our large party. Service was also good. My only issue (hence the loss of a star) was the uneven portions sizes. Desserts were good, but mains were oddly distributed in size, steak being good but the lamb accompaniments being just spoonful sizes.Starters were the most disappointing. Most of our party ordered 'scallops with black pudding' - highlighting the S at the end of scallops. However what came appeared to be 1 scallop sliced with sprinkles of black pudding - for nearly £8, we all agreed we shouldn't have bothered. Overall it was a good night but we didn't feel we got value for money.
