An extremely warm welcome lovely food. Highly recommend. We had the Beef and Stilton Pie was very tasty. Made to feel very comfortable with such friendly staff. Well worth the short walk.

Excellent atmosphere, beer, food, and service. This is near Blenheim, and an attraction in its own right. Good value for money.

We booked a lunch at the Black Prince on the back of great TA reviews, which rarely lets us down, but in this instance I think the rating for this pub is way off the mark. Between us we had the ‘famous’ burger, fish and...More

Yes there’s a car park but it is fairly small, probably room for about 20 cars. I am not sure about the access question so if I was you I would call the pub direct.

The Black Prince is a 16th century pub situated opposite to the grounds of Blenheim Palace and on the bank of the river Glyme. It boasts a delightful riverside garden for you to enjoy the summer sunshine overlooking the calming river. Inside the pub there are two roaring log fires, stones walls and a traditional suit of armour. We are well known in area for our excellent quality and variation with our real ales and regularly appear in beer publications such as 'The Good Beer Guide' and 'Beer On Tap'. If you are looking to dine with us you can choose from our wide range of traditional British home-made meals. We are well known for our treatment of all our dog visitors, and take pride on being Woodstock’s best dog friendly venue. Well behaved dogs might even get treated to a biscuit or two from our dog loving staff! We frequently cater for large groups of walkers looking to relax after enjoying one of the many countryside strolls available in the area.
