From the moment I arrived and was greeted by Gemma I was treated in a warm and friendly way. Her manner created the atmosphere for my stay and her people skills are visible in all the staff including Aiden and Ben the chefs who are a delight. As a lady on her own (visiting my mum in hospital) I was...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was warm and comfortable. The en-suite had a shower cubicle (no bath). The towels were changed daily. Breakfast was very good with a choice of juices, cereals and a choice of cooked breakfast, toast and marmalade/jam. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate here every night as...

This is the second time we have been to The Punchbowl in a few months. It had, at time of our first visit just been taken over by a new owner. The most refreshing thing about this pub/restaurant is the non pretentiousness of the food and over inflated prices that you can experience in Woodstock. Our first visit was on...

my husband and i recently visited oxford for a friend's wedding. we chose to stay at this hotel for a night. However I was not impressed with the standard of accomodation given what we paid for the room. On arrival I initially asked what the phone number was for reception from my room in case I had a query and...

Stop-off en route home from weekend away, this looked like the best option to suit all (kids and veggies) The place has only just opened (Sunday), and it was so quiet the staff were falling over themselves to help us. Bar manager kindly took the kids to to the carvery, and all were really welcoming

My wife and I visited this pub during our stay in Woodstock. The food was very good and the staff looked after us well. I do recommend the fish pie! My wife had pork which was excellent. Highly recommended

I recently had dinner here with some friends. We thought we would give it a go as had heard some good reviews since it had changed hands. Unfortunately we were all very dissapointed. I ordered the thai red curry which was really tasteless. My friend ordered a thai salad with cashews, unfortunately it came without the cashews. Another friend orderd...

Our room was nicley furnished, clean and spacious. However, the road noise was just awful and occasionally vibrated the whole room. This went on late into the night and began again at 6. Add to this the fact that the blinds did very little to block out the street lamps and you can imagine the quality of sleep we had....
