Good Pub Guide Recommended

Enjoyable pub with enthusiastic staff, simple furnishings, inventive cooking and seats in the garden

The slightly quirky décor and bustling and easy-going atmosphere here appeal to our readers. The simply furnished bar has leather armchairs and chesterfields, some plain tables and benches, wide floorboards, a small open fire and high chairs at the counter where they keep Banks's Sunbeam, Brakspears Bitter, Wells Bombardier and Wychwood Hobgoblin on handpump, 13 wines by the glass, a good choice of spirits and lots of teas and coffees; background music. You can eat at plain wooden tables in a grey panelled area with an open fire or in the smarter knocked-through dining room. This has standing timbers in the middle, a fire at each end and shiny, dark wooden chairs and tables on floorboards; there are standard lamps, stags' heads, a reel-to-reel tape recorder, quite a few mirrors and various deli items for sale. Several seating areas outside have good quality tables and chairs under parasols, picnic-sets on decking and deckchairs and more picnic-sets on grass. This is sister pub to the Woodstock Arms in Woodstock.
