About The Evenlode

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

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 10 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.

Food lovely although small portions. Definitely need to order side portions of veg etc. House white wine was dreadful and expensive. Sticky toffee pudding was bland, over sweet and a tiny scoop of ice cream. Lovely place though and will return. Just will make different choices.

Dave and his team at the Evenlode are awesome! We held a surprise 40th anniversary party for my parents here in October with 29 guests. Amongst our group we had several special orders including a guest requiring a Gluten Free menu. From the first interaction I was confident that the team were committed to making our experience special, all meals were fantastic, and most impressively were all delivered to the tables simultaneously. We are so grateful for your time, patience(!!) and attentiveness to our party. Thank you Dave and team.

Very few people in the restaurant. Lasagne had no meat in it. Overcharged for the glass of white wine. Very slow service.

The food was amazing and the staff were friendly. We had a small issue with our baked camembert sharer that was dealt with quickly and with apologies. We had a lovely relaxed evening and will definitely be going again.
