We had the lasagne with garlic bread and salad.. It was a bit tasteless and just meat, pasta and white sauce with cheese on top, no tomatoes. Wouldn't go back.

If you are looking for a good honest country pub, this is what you would be happy to find. No frills, good selection of beers and bar food, cheery staff and a crowd of local good natured drinkers (what else would you realistically expect to find in a pub!). You won't be disappointed - we weren't.

We had dinner here a few weeks ago, the new chef has re established what the owner always wanted, simple local food cooked well and presented in a traditional country pub. The owner apologised as some of his Saturday crowd were a bit loud of voice but quite honestly I prefer that to an ersatz atmosphere or loud muzac to... More

We only popped in here for a quick pint after a long day, the smells when we walked in were mouth watering, I understood they had a new chef and if the smell was anything to go by lucky people who were eating. We did try to book a meal later in the week, but they were fully booked when... More

We visited here for lunch today and found an unexpected treat. To be honest we were planning on visiting the other pub in Bampton which had been recommended to us as the Quarrymans had recently changed hands and we had not heard good reviews, but when we found the other place were not serving food decided to visit the Quarrymans...

We were recommended to visit by locals, commenting on the improvement due to a new chef. What can I say? The food was wonderful. Superbly cooked and a creative menu. This chef knows how to cook! The staff were all friendly and helpful and run efficiently by the Landlord. What a fantastic find. Would definitely recommend visiting.

This is the first time we had eaten at the Quarryman's since the new chef arrived. There had been very good reports and we were not disappointed. We had a couple of foodie friends visiting for the day so we booked in for lunch and they were clearly impressed - as were we! No bar food here - and no... More

Bampton, unfortunately, had the air of an old people’s commune..... So, stumbling upon the Quarrymans Rest was an even greater pleasure. We were welcomed warmly and it was clear that the current hosts have worked very hard to make an ambience, offer and menu appropriate to its clientele. Fortunately the weather was good so we were able to enjoy the... More

A real gem of a place. Good honest food without any unnecessary ponsy trimmings. Great value, and great hosts.

Had a fantastic Mothering Sunday carvery here, food was very good and well priced, a special mention must be made for the local beef and roast potatoes, cooked to perfection. The new management are doing a brilliant job, we were made to feel very welcome and appreciated the single rose and bubbly provided free for all the mums. Would recommend... More
