Arrived here on a rainy and gloomy Saturday night. Bar service was absolutely spot on, with jovial and informative bar staff who obviously enjoy their work complimented by an ambient convivial atmosphere. I was worried that I was walking into a snooty footballers wags cocktail bar, however it was exactly the opposite. Great service, not too painful prices and nice... More

We've been here a couple of times now. Once for an evening meal with family, and recently for breakfast. The breakfast menu is great, and departs from the usual stuff you get in restaurants. But importantly, the food and service has been superb. Add in the atmosphere, and it's an all-round great place to eat.

We stumbled across this pub on our last visit a few years ago and remember loving the food so went straight back. It was also recommended by the hotel staff. The menu wasn't as good as our last visit but the food is still great. We realised chipping norton love a bit of salt! We found this in the neighbouring... More

My daughter and I stopped here while passing through the area. The food was fresh and delicious, and the staff was friendly. We had a delightful lunch, which was so hearty that there was no room for dessert; but they have a lovely looking selection! I would love to go here again and if in the area, definitely will. I...

This pub in the very centre of Charlbury manages to pull off a difficult challenge; it serves excellent food whether you want a snack or full meal and it is also welcoming for those who just want a pint or glass of fizz. The food is not only good but great value and there are bar treats including free sausages... More

Well what a wonderful place for a delicious meal. We've just returned back to our hotel feeling very satisfied with our choice of eatery this evening. I had a goats cheese starter and belly pork roast for main, there was plenty and very tasty. My husband had nachos to start and spaghetti carbonara, he said the nachos were fab and... More

We visited in a large group after a pantomime. The food was served quickly and efficiently and was good considering the number of us. The staff were delightful. I'd go again just to try out the menu offerings!!
