Second time we have visited both times with family members , the first visit was superb and we were determined to visit again , this time was good ( but not as good) the food was lovely and the service was not bad but we were misinformed about the wine selection which disappointed one of the family , she was...

The fixed price menu is excellent value and vey very delicious. The whole menu is fabulous, whatever the time of day. The staff are friendly and welcoming and I love the small cosy rooms where you can sit & chat in a comfortable & elegant 'shabby chic' setting. Perfik!

Very nice place to visit for food or just call in for a drink. Very friendly staff and first class food. Reasonable price. Would advise to call and book first just in case they are busy which they might be.

I was one of a party of 40 walkers that recently ate at The Joiners Arms in Bloxham, near Banbury. The food was fantastic -beautifully cooked, piping hot and masses of it! The staff were excellent - very efficient and polite. I'll be back!

Great atmosphere, good choice of beer and fantastic specials nights, this pub has it all whether you're a local or a traveller. Best to book if you can as it's usually very busy.

Booked a table for four on a Saturday...lots of young staff about..probably a weekend job for them which met that service was questionable. The food was poor value for money and small portions to boot. The burgers had the smallest ramekin of coleslaw we have ever seen and the urges was completely lost in the bun. The fish and chips...

This is my local, although with 4 children, we are not at the pub often and rarely just for a drink. Generally we eat there and the food is always very good, although on the pricey side for a pub in my opinion. We have eaten as a couple, family of 6 and extended family meal of 13 and every... More

My favourite pub for food in the area. Firstly they let me take my dogs in as long as we don't sit in the restaurant area, secondly the staff are incredibly helpful without being annoying (the chap with the ponytail is particularly good - so sorry I don't know his name). Then there is the food. It's SO good. I... More

The Xmas meal would have received an excellent rating but for the vegetables which were hardly cooked - sprouts in particular were very hard. Vegetables were from frozen, not fresh. Other than that the food was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere of the evening was superb.

Booked for dinner with friends. Very efficient, even a little too efficient. It just so happened we'd all arrived at the same time in the car park. We were met at the door and taken straight to our table, no option of a drink at the bar. The service was quick there were some issues with the starters. We had... More
