Yet another lovely Sunday lunch. Best nut roast in Oxford! Thanks for being my go to Sunday lunch spot.

On my last visit the atmosphere and service were good as I've gone to expect. But the food has really gone down hill. I ordered a veggie burger with chips and what arrived was a huge plate of ready made chips and a very basic burger. Nothing like the gourmet style of food they used to do. I really on hope this is a one off because it used to be great.

We have been to another local for many years and passed by here thinking how nice it looked. Our usual is being refurbished at the moment and, bearing in mind how disappointed we were with our old place, have now found ourselves a new local. We loved it here :-)

Lovely place and the service was attentive, polite and friendly. We had great hopes as it seems to have very good reviews. Some of the food was lovely but overall a bit underwhelmed. The main courses let down the experience. Starters and puddings were yum. Ended up quite an expensive evening for a meal that did not make us want to go back any time soon. Good enough but not that good.

We had booked for a Sunday meal at 7.00 p.m. However, on our arrival we were told that the beef, lamb, and chicken were all sold out, leaving a 'choice' of only one meat, namely pork. As my wife cannot eat pork, she ended up having a burger - not the Sunday meal she had been looking forward to... Very disappointing!

Really disappointing. I used to come here all the time - our breakfast was overcooked (poached eggs were hard boiled), salmon plate came without lemon, black pepper and garnish? Service was slow due to number of staff, and more prominently a lack of staff that knew what they doing :( Finally there was a person within the snug who chatted extremely loudly on Facetime throughout our 2 hours there. May be worth reducing laptop hours to provide a more relaxing experience for diners? Sorry to have to write such a review.

Young but pleasant staff. Sticky menus. Not a gastropub by any standard. Expensive for meagre portions. In fairness they did knock off £12 when we complained. Still cost £100 for two courses each and wine (nice Albariño).

Lovely Sunday lunch options, though it took a while to track down a server. No room for dessert which was a shame! We came back for coffee later, after a nice walk, and the service was much better.

The service was fabulous, and the starters and desserts were nice, but the roasts were terrible. The beef was like leather. Our lovely waitress changed the beef for us, but even when it came back, it was gristly and unpleasant. Also the potatoes, veg etc was sent back cold. The waitress/manager very kindly knocked the beef roasts and some money off the bill, but it was a birthday celebration, and we would have preferred to pay the full price and have had a decent meal. The kitchen really let the place down.
