Staff were excellent, friendly and extremely helpful. Room (in the barn across the car park) was well appointed but a tad small. No bath, great shower. Room was warm,TV was decent size. Lunchtime sandwiches were really good and decent price. Evening steak a bit tough and overall pricey for steak chips and veg. I bitter and a dark mild which...

Firstly I do believe it is over priced but when you are in sparsholt where else are you going to stay? I had to prove to the staff that certain items were missing from the room by showing the email, which I found pretty low from the staff... Trying to trick your customer isn't the smartest idea when they've most...

Plenty of private parking available on arrival. Lovely welcome from the Australian hostess, drinks ordered (our little jackrussell was offered a bowl of water) we had a great Sunday roast. Our room, 7, was newly refurbed and very comfy, lovely clean white linen on the bed and new carpet. The bathroom smelt a little bit 'bogey' as in I think...

I stayed here with three friends. We booked a twin room and a double. Two of us arrived first, and had lunch whilst waiting for the others. Lunch was excellent, so good in fact that we booked a table for dinner. The double room wasn't yet ready, so we had tea in the twin whilst we waited. The rooms are...

an out of the way country inn with fairly sparse furnishings but the food is to die for. take care ordering the pies because they take a very long time to cook. quite difficult to find with unhelpful signs and frustrating sat nav.

The missing fifth star is due to the overriding smell of what I think was probably paraffin. Perhaps this is a one off when perhaps the normal heating system failed - shame. On a very positive note, the fish and burger that we had was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The sticky toffee SOUFFLÉ! Is simply divine and not to...

we only spent one night here, but would love to have stayed longer. this cul-de-sac village, tucked away in the oxfordshire woodland like a tiny island of englishness, feels like the one place that might survive the current zombie apocalypse we seem to be going through. sadly we weren't up to trying the menu (having already eaten elsewhere with our...

My visit was to celebrate a friends birthday with Sunday lunch. The pub is lovely, with modern, tasteful decor and plenty of space around the tables. The staff were attentive but not hugely friendly or welcoming. There were just little things missing which would have helped make it even better, particularly for the price of the food. There were side...

The Star Inn is a fabulous wee B&B. Modern and sophisticated decor and very in keeping with the country town. It is also very dog friendly. The rooms, bar and restaurant an immaculate and very warm and inviting. Their are plenty of walks around the town and close to Oxford, Wantage town Center and the white horse for some good...

The pub, the food and drinks were very good, however I was very disappointed with the bedroom. The room was reasonably clean and the bathroom well equipped, the bed was a slightly too squishy, soft double - I would have thought a slightly firmer queen size more appropriate for the price. The bed-linen was so creased that I checked it...
