Good Hotel Guide Review
Contemporary design and a timeless, pubby feel combine in this spruced-up honey-stone roadside inn in a small village near Oxford. It is owned by George Dailey; Suzy Minichova is the manager. The building dates, in parts, from the mid-1700s; its large log fire, beams, flagstone floors and cosy snugs add much atmosphere. Sit down to pizzas, grilled fish and pub classics in the restaurant (an open kitchen means you can watch the chefs at work), then retire to one of the bright, modern bedrooms supplied with tea- and coffee-making facilities and high-end toiletries. 2 bars (background music), library (private parties), restaurant; terrace. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Wedding, function facilities. Parking. Children (by arrangement) and dogs (not in bedrooms) welcomed. 4 miles N of Oxford. 9 bedrooms (1 on ground floor). Per room B&B (continental) single from £95, double from £120. Dinner £35 (£15 3-course set menu Mon–Thurs, 6 pm–7.30 pm).
