My friend and I enjoyed a nice lunch here. The staff were friendly and service was good, the menu wasn't extensive but we only wanted sandwiches so that suited us. Our sandwiches were excellent, real doorstep ones and the homemade chips were delicious. I thought this place was good value for money, portions were just right and I'd definitely recommend...

Spent a night prior & thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Staff were friendly and there was a good choice to be made on the bar menu. Would recommend to anyone thinking of stopping in the Oxford area to give it a go!

Stayed here recently and it was ok. Needs a lot of renovation but a nice feel to the place. Food was good and the beer, Doombar, was very reasonably priced. Good roaring fire in the lounge. The staff were good and friendly.

My wife and I stayed here for a night and were very surprised at how friendly the landlord and staff were. Nothing was too much for them and they made our stay very comfortable.

The last tile I stopped here it was a pleasant experience- allowing for the age of the hotel (it's always going to be a bit creaky at night!). This time however the Inn is apparently without a manager- hence no food in the evenings, despite meals being advertised when booking, and indeed menus left in the room. Instead you are...

I stayed here for one night with friends after going to a wedding. It is in the centre of town so expect some noise. I shared a room with 2 friends.
