Visited here on a not so busyThursday lunchtime. The venue is very nice and the restaurant very well set out. Staff were helpful and friendly, service was good and the food well cooked and presented. Definitely worth another visit, maybe in the evening when busier to improve the ambience.

We had a delicious lunch at the Dashwood. My husband had of cheek which was slow cooked beautifully with a yummy sauce and mash. I had pork belly with chorizo and heritage potatoes - wow! It was so tasty and the meat was so tender. Lots of GF options - shame the fries aren't but we didn't miss them. I... More

Called in here last Saturday evening on the off chance. The helpful waiters found us a table in a very busy restaurant. Decor was great, view in to the kitchen. The food was excellent - very fairly priced and filling. Didn't try the puddings but they looked lovely. Would highly recommend for atmosphere, food and great service - thank you!

Really gorgeous food at a great price, friendly helpful staff and great atmosphere. Only complaint would be the lighting - very subdued lighting - found it very difficult to read the menu (I don't have problems with my eyesight!!) but all in all a lovely foodie experience. Thank you

We were just driving past after running some tedious errands, and decided to teat ourselves to supper out. Wandered in knowing nothing about the place at all. It was lovely inside and the staff very pleasant and attentive. We both found plenty to choose from one the menu, which is not always the case as beloved husband is a complete... More

I stopped here for a quick bite to eat with my mum on the way to friendsfest at Blenheim palace. Whilst they finished serving lunches in the restaurant at 2 the bar menu was still available. With pizza on the menu we decided to have that, and I'm so glad I did! It was so tasty and homemade! Recommend here... More

Upon driving through the county of Oxfordshire and feeling a little peckish I came across the village of Kirtlington and faced with the choice of 2 similar establishments I selected the Oxford Arms. However after a hasty browse of their menu and a small sample of their atmosphere I hastily backtracked and made my way round the corner to the... More

Lunch today with my wife and a friend was excellent. The menu choice, dish presentation and taste was great to the point that I just had to complemented the Chef on our way out. The restaurant wasn't overly busy today so we will return on a busier day and check out the service bud today we had no cause for... More

We've eaten several times at the Dashwood before the refurb. and always been very happy but unfortunately not this time. We came on the evening of Tuesday 13th September we'd booked but asked if we could have a drink outside before eating as it was such a lovely evening. My son asked which beers were on offer and was told... More

Not to say that your comments are not a true reflection of how you feel but rather that they are derived from your... More
