It's a real shame the service isn't as good as the food in this place, otherwise it would be 4 or 5 stars comfortably. A group of 8 of us ate here on a moderately busy Friday night, so I appreciate that it can be hard to keep everybody happy in a busy service. What I found strange, however, is... More

Took some visiting American friends here last year and they loved it. When one was over here on business a few days ago it was his first choice for an evening out. Based in a converted pub (hence the name) it's quieter than it should be, especially during the week but there's a huge menu, the food is as good... More

Overpriced, very poor quality and meagre portions of lukewarm greasy food. 8 hungry golfers staying at The Oxfordshire expected far better than was served in this poor excuse of an Indian cuisine restaurant. Our home town takeaway delivers better food. Will not be returning when next in the area.

I love the Star and Garter. Without doubt the best curry restaurant in Thame. Notable dishes Karai Kebab Khyberi, comes with only a little heat but you can ask for a bit more! Then Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi. Great service, good value and always a rose for the ladies. What more do you need.

I took my son here for dinner. Although it was early there were a few people already there. The waiter, who failed to smile the whole time we were there, showed us to a table. We ordered some papadums and a main course each, to which the waiter, a different one who also failed to smile, said "is that it!?".... More

Family take away on a very busy Friday evening but very disappointed with quality of food recently. We've had take out food many times from here and it was, at one point, the best in Thame. Sadly this has been on a steady decline over recent months. Food was greasy, not hot enough (temperature not spice), chicken was dry and... More
