Christmas Day Lunch - Near Woodstock


Myself and my fiancé are wanting to go out this year for Christmas Day lunch, we have never eaten out on Christmas Day before, so we are wanting it to be a meal to remember. We'd ideally like to go to somewhere near to where we live in the Woodstock/Witney area. Does anyone have any recent recommendations for places to go??

Many thanks in advance.

I have no idea whether these places will be open and serving Xmas day lunch, and obviously you'll need to book well in advance, but a few places are starting to take Xmas bookings now so you could enquire. The Bear in Woodstock itself is very nice. In Witney I'd try The Fleece or the Blue Boar. Alternatively, some friends of ours have a curry every Xmas day at the Raj on Witney High Street and it's apparently excellent.

Agree with beckysimms... There are certainly some lovely pubs in the area you mention - I recommend that you have a look on TripAdvisor and other websites and make a shortlist of the ones you really like. Perhaps pop in and see what they're like if you live nearby. Opening on Christmas Day is definitely a matter for the individual publican. There is no way of guessing which ones will be open all day, which will be open for a private function, which will be open for a half day, and which ones will be closed. Once you have your shortlist, I suggest calling up the pubs and asking them what the arrangement is for Christmas Day. It is certainly not a day when you want to be disappointed, so don't leave it to chance - and make a booking.
