Food excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely place to sit outside too. Only slight criticism. Remove the main course plates when bringing the dessert. Overall thanks for an excellent lunch

Warm cheery good service. Let down by the not very hot burgher. No water for our dogs that I could see

Having been a few times the food on this occasion was poor. I found part of the string that ties the lamb during cooking in my food. My wife asked for the burger she had to be well done but it was still pink and it made the bottom of the bun soggy. We then sat for a good ten minutes to receive a desert menu even though the waitress asked if we wanted to see it. She just forgot. Normally the food is very nice but unfortunately nit this time.

We booked Sunday lunch for 4 people and 2 high chairs. We when got to our table only 1 high chair was there and the member of staff said there was not enough so a 1 year old has to sit on the sofa. An adjacent empty table had a high chair which we asked to use until they arrived we were told they were arriving now. The family did not arrive for half an hour and we had an awful experience trying to feed a child sat on my lap. In my opinion this is shocking.customer service, if you do not have enough high chairs you should call the person in advance and check if they would like to continue with the boòking. Had we had known there is no chance we would have come!

We ate there 3 months ago for Sunday lunch and it was very good. 3 days ago... it was DREADFUL. Luke warm chicken, floppy carrots, abysmal "roast potatoes" (a complaint about which got blamed on a delivery of the wrong sort of potato!!), a leathery flat Yorkshire pudding, and all drowned in gravy. Inedible. A 30% discount was OK, but so far from what was wanted... A decent Sunday lunch. Never returning on that performance and will suggest others avoid it. A pity... it was good once. Change of chef??

Lovely meal, friendly staff, and relaxed ambience. The outside area is particularly charming and must be magical after dark.

Such a pleasure from the moment I walked in, a little early for my booked table into a space filled with wood, fire, cosiness. I ordered a gin and tonic - probably the best I've had, and settled into a space where newbies like me and regulars could sink into comfy chairs or sit on bar stools and relax & enjoy some quiet or time with friends. Dinner was excellent (real fireplaces, did I mention those?); I had the fishcakes and will definitely return to try more of the menu. Service was warm, friendly, and prompt. All in all, an unexpectedly delightful experience: I'd come to Wolvercote for an evening meeting and was just looking for a place to park and feed myself beforehand, but found much more.

There seemed to be a problem with the booking system (not caused by us), which the bar-staff weren't apologetic about at all. The waiting staff were nice. Excellent food.

We were beautifully looked after by Liam and Ali. All our parties foibles and special requests were dealt with efficiently and with good humour. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and it was a totally successful festive family gathering! Thank you Jacobs Inn😊
