Roaring fire, superb fillet steak from the nearby Newbottle herd, Hendriks triple cooked chips and couple of glasses of really smooth Merlot and the company of a stunning blonde....where could I go wrong? First issue was the 31 year age gap , didn't bother me but then shouldn't really have come into it as it was a business lunch and... More

Without doubt one of the best restaurants for miles around. The food was faultless and imaginative. The waiting staff were knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu, and most helpful. Everything is home cooked by a top rate team, even the freshly baked bread. Odd sounding offerings, such as crispy pigs head (a starter), turn out to be almost indescribably... More

We were a family of 16, from 2 years old to 80+ and we were all treated like royals. This place never fails to satisfy. We organised for the children to eat their main course while starters were being served and this worked a treat. A mixture of Sunday roasts, steaks, etc and yet all adult food came together -...

Great place to go with friends to try a number of different cask ales after a long day at work (or at least a day at work).

We were on our way back from a miserable morning at Bicester Village (awful place)and feeling quite miserable but hungry. We took a minor detour courtesy of TripAdvisor to this pub for a quick lunch. It was pretty busy but so very welcoming with a roaring log fire and a very reasonable set menu. We stayed for an unintended 3... More

Having recently moved to the area we were recommended the White Horse for a Saturday lunch with visiting family members, and advised to book which certainly paid of as the place was full by the time we left, and I can see why! Having eaten in a number of the local well regarded gastropubs (horrible word) I'd say the White... More

We went to this charming pub to meet our son and daughter in law for Sunday lunch. It's a "halfway house" between our homes. The food was very good, especially the roast beef on the day of our visit. Very good value for money, attentive service without being too much. Two sittings for the Sunday lunch and the place was... More

Hello Thank you for your review. Great to read we hit the mark with the food and the service and that your only 'beef' (I panicked when I read that bit) is that we are not nearer to where you live. Thank you once again and hope to see you soon Hendrik and Julie More
