About The Evenlode

The Evenlode at Eynsham is an iconic landmark pub dating from the 1930s and is located on the A40 between the city of Oxford and the market town of Witney close to the Cotwolds.

The Evenlode has been refurbished and remodelled to the highest standards and will be offering great, freshly-cooked food all-day everyday from 7.30am each morning, serving breakfast and coffee with an option to take-away. A good selection of real ales and fine wines will be available, together with a wide range of other bar products.

If you enjoy outdoor dining, we have two extensive terraces: a very sunny one that hugs the side of the building to beat all the elements, and one with cool shady areas — both seating up to 80 people. We also have a private dining room that seats up to 15 very comfortably, as well as a meeting room for business.

With easy access off the main A40 road and ample parking, The Evenlode makes a perfect destination or stop-off venue. This is a wonderful pub for local village residents and a firm favourite for the nearby populations of Oxford, Witney and surrounding villages.

We very much look forward to welcoming customers, both old and new, to the Evenlode. Please check this website or our Facebook page for further news and offers.

We had a lovely evening with you and all thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in what is a pleasant room with a pleasant atmosphere. Your food is really excellent, especially the roast pork which melts in the mouth. We will certainly visit again when we are next in the area andI know my daughter and her other half plan to visit again very soon. Thank you. I have also reviewed on Tripadvisor.

Visited for the first time with family and thoroughly impressed with all aspects! Decor is great, very friendly and welcoming atmosphere with prompt service. Gentleman that served was incredibly personable and fun. Food was spectacular, huge portions and excellent flavour. Obvious that ingredients are locally sourced and high quality. Would strongly recommend to all!

Going from an amazing meal on mother’s day to a mediocre at best, meal on Sunday, service very slow, food was cold and beef barely cooked and tough, it was very disappointing. Because of such a fantastic meal previously we tried it again but will have to say we probably won’t be back.

The beef roast was highly overpriced for what was offered, the 'veg' being just steamed cabbage and cucumber and a small amount of mash? No carrots or parsnips to be seen. Fatty beef. Slow service.

We did have to get our own drinks from our table. Service a bit slow but it was Mother’s Day so very busy. It wasn’t a problem for us

Lovely pub, generous portions but not inexpensive so glad they were well sized! Only slight disappointment was I thought there was a children’s play park in the photos but it’s gone now.

Too brightly lit in the dining area. The artisan bread had the appearance of a part baked roll. Service was superb. Value for money. So so.

Helpful smiling staff, we had four lovely roast dinners: roast potatoes were disappointing as they were very hard (either been heated twice or borrowed from Aunt Bessie or both?) the side of cauliflower cheese was really delicious, our request for a doggy bag was happily obliged. Would recommend, will return: even hard spuds couldn't keep us away!!
