Lovely coaching inn stay for one evening, had a great evening meal, room was described as a small double but really only comfortable as a single, very good decorative order but lighting not the best with a very dark alcove where a rail was put there for clothes

First time for me to be here. Nice decoration, lovely garden for the summer. Quick gratings and friendly staff all the way. Food was great: camabert as a starter, burger and fish & chips to follow, slightly to much for me. Quality wine, found it a bit odd they don't have a drink list. Felt slightly overpriced, maybe because the... More

We recently visited with family including young children. Good menu choices plus specials board and lovely roast lunch. Puddings were great too and we all enjoyed everything we ate! Thought the service was welcoming and attentive and a lovely log fire. The pub is in a lovely village, nice for walks before or after especially if you have a dog.... More

Had a delicious fish and chip lunch. Light, crispy batter. Plenty of tartare sauce (not the sometimes stingy little pots one gets). Lovely, friendly service and a very attractive place. Highly recommended.

Visited for lunch after a morning out walking. Great that you can take your dog in with you. I had a club sandwich and my colleague a steak sandwich, both came with chips. The food was excellent, just what we wanted. Matt, our waiter, was attentive and this ensured that our lunch was not over extended, which was perfect for... More

Visited early on a Friday evening with the Mrs and in-laws for a meal, it's been a while since I last visited but I shall return soon. A lovely young lady called Lillie showed us to our table she was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks that was available. The food we had was very tasty and the Peroni... More

The inn is overall clean good food & drinks. BUT the bedrooms are crammed together in a small area & have poor sound proof to the walls, this was highlighted when at 4am a group of rowdy people turned up to their room which was adjacent to ours & the noise was horrendous. & went on for 2 hours ....

As a base for a visit to Oxford and/or Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, this is an excellent choice. The pub is very welcoming and the food in the evening both good and reasonable: there was, for example a deal on a pint of beer and a posh burger for Six Nations Rugby matches - most enjoyable. The breakfast looked... More

A friend and I decided to try the Bat and Ball having not eaten there since the refurbishment. I opted for the pie of the day - a hearty portion with fresh veg and chips. My friend opted for something off of the specials board. She said she really didn't enjoy it but, I think her dissatisfaction was what ended... More
