Appalling place to stay - on arrival the manager said he could not find our booking,and although I told him I had my booking confirming on my phone and in hard copy he said he did not need this. He promptly tried to find it from his computer and then said it did not surprise him as nothing was working...

We stopped here for lunch, two adults and two children (1 and 6 years). We effectively ordered 3 main courses, and some soft drinks. We waited ages and ages, and the food was some of the worst I have had, it was edible, but reminiscent of hospital or school food. The very definition of food cooked without any love or...

We stayed here couple of nights whilst visiting Oxfordshire. Upon arrival I was pleased to find a large, spacious car park, with spaces large enough to prevent others opening their doors onto your car. We arrived mid-afternoon and were shown to our room which was in the annex at the rear of the pub. The room was large and well...

The staff were accomodating and helpful. On the last day I asked about walks around the area and they kindly printed out a number...

The hotel is situated in a small Cotswold village. It has plenty of car parking spaces at the rear. The staff were very polite and friendly during our two night stay. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was both spacious and comfortable. The only negative to the room was the toilet in the ensuite bathroom, its...

Stayed on business and was given one of the rooms above the pub. Nice room with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom needed updated as the shower was not very powerful and toilet was in an alcove - a bigger person would struggle to use the facilities. Good pub food and there is a nice room with roaring fire to eat...

Friendly staff, good manager who hasn't been their long so don't listen to the bad reviews!!, enjoyed the food and the locals were friendly! Charlbury is a great little Cotswold town with a number of good pubs. I'd go again and take my wife next time!

My partner and I stayed here for one night in July. The room was spacious, clean, and had a large shower room. We ate here in the evening as there was little choice nearby, and I wasn't very impressed. We both had ham, egg and chips which was very average for the price. We had a breakfast included which was...
