What a perfect place to enjoy Sunday Lunch . Fabulous setting doesn’t disappoint once you get inside. Roaring fire , cosy seating. Friendly staff and prompt service. Wonderful lamb dinner with gorgeous veg. Definitely will be returning

The FOOD really NOT very good!! Definitely below standard! There were 7 of us. The starter of "king prawns" was not nice looking ... and just 3 in a mess of cheesy sauce. Supposed to come with granary bread ... when we asked to get it .... served just sliced brown bread. 2 ordered a chicken breast and salad ... DRY and just plonked on plate. I will not be returning here.

We stayed two nights in this charming 500 year old hotel and pub set in a beautiful thatched roof village. For the price the room was great as was the full English breakfast. The service was excellent and there was A lot to see nearby. Meals were pricy but good.

This was a special midweek night out for us and our friends visiting us from Canada. They knew the pub and wanted to return to this idyllic village. Wandsworth who own this pub are very fortunate, it must be there flagship. Located in the best north Oxfordshire countryside and must be one of the most original pubs in the country.
Ok that’s the positives, we ordered our four meals from what is basic but posh versions of standard pub grub, they can push the price up in this area as at weekends it’s most full of the green welly brigade from the cities playing at being country folk.
Good beer and expensive wine saw us through until our food was served, fish and chips,meat pie and the risotto. Good potions but bad on quality, the ladies did not finish there fish mainly because of the poor chewy batter the risotto was average and the pie had extremely poor quality meat. If it was half the price it may have been just acceptable.
So verdict?
Weatherspoons would have been better but I admit not the surroundings.
Wadsworths please note, we pay good money just please serve good food.

Dropped in for a drink and stayed for Sunday roast. All inside tables were booked. We were happy to eat outside and watch the horses go by. Roast beef and chicken were the order of the day. Both presented nicely with roast potatoes carrots and parsnips with cabbage. All were cooked very well and the beef was medium rare. Good selection of ales. Booking a must.
