This really doesn't look much from the outside, and even inside it just looks ordinary - but the service is incredibly friendly and the food was absolutely delicious - it takes a little while for the food to arrive, but that's because they cook each dish fresh - well worth the wait!

Thanks for the lovely comments about our food, sounds like you really enjoyed it! We do pride ourselves on serving good quality, homemade food and not microwave meals, so I'm pleased to hear you appreciated this so much and didn't mind waiting a little bit.

We had a very enjoyable experience for my mum's birthday meal here, four of us, 6:30pm, not busy but soon did get busy!
Bar/waitress was so lovely, attentive and very helpful. Nice food, arrived all cooked properly and hot, very good sized portions, my only only gripe is that the oil for the chips and onion rings tasted like it was a few days old, but apart from that it was very nice and good value.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here with about 30 friends and family. Helen and her team were great, they provided a lovely buffet and the evening was a great success. Been here a few times now and it is always very friendly and will be back soon.

Thanks!

I booked for a party of 9 to have my graduation lunch here. It looked like a nice, friendly pub and I was impressed with the feel of the place.
In all honesty, I expected average pub food but I could not believe the quality of food that came out of the kitchen. The food is absolutely superb and we made sure we thanked the chefs personally before we left. The serving girls were fabulous and friendly and couldn't help us enough. We were also blown away by the price, the entire bill was so reasonable, especially as the food was so great.
Our group was a complete mix of my mid-20s friends to my uncle and auntie who are 60+ and everyone felt the same way. Massive well done to all staff there, particularly Helen who was so quick to respond to my inquiry. I had tried to contact several places concerning my graduation lunch and Helen was the only one who bothered to get back to me, which is why of course, they got our custom!
When I'm back in Botley, I will definitely pop in!
