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.

A good venue for a business lunch. Tables well spaced and not too noisy so easy to talk. Food is consistently good and service always super professional and never intrusive. One colleague is coliac and dairy intolerant and it was still possible for her to have a good choice of meals, including gluten-free fish and chips. Well done The Evenlode!

Visited for lunch with colleagues. Food was fantastic, excellent value, waitress was brilliant. My only small complaint would be the time it took. From ordering to receiving our food was around 30mins. It was busy but this wait time makes popping in on lunch break difficult.

The food wasn't great on our visit my friend had the pasta and it was burnt and really expensive as well. I had sticky toffee pudding and it was burnt and extremely dry. My friend also found a hair in her pudding but no one came and asked if everything was OK. Disappointed.

It is clearly operated by an inspired team, as we find the well chosen quality ingredients prepared with creative competence and served with consideration and care for the their customers. It's rare to find a restaurant that does so much right. I've never left without having enjoyed my meal and service experience, which cannot be said of many restaurants.

Lovely Staff, great atmosphere, good location, excellent value especially because of the January discount. Food was good and enjoyable for the rest of my group of 8 except mine, it was the toughest steak I ever had, I should have return it but did not want to spoil the party feel. Will come again but not have steak.

The service was poor,the food atrocious,apart from the battered fish and chips,I was ill all day yesterday,vomiting and on the toilet and aches and pains,I’m convinced it was the belly pork I had, which was 90% fat,or the runny Brie cheese,very disappointing and will certainly not be visiting again,will also make sure my friends know about my dining experience here,you would of had no stars if possible

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.
