Met up with friends for an evening meal. Beautiful building. Very accommodating as one of us was in a wheelchair. Offered to move us to a different area or open the fire escape up so we could eat in the lower restaurant which we chose to do. Steak was cooked very well and pudding was lovely. Would visit again.

Whilst staying locally for a long weekend we changed upon this pub/restaurant and we were really pleased with the food, the service and the price. All of the food had the feel of home cooked and was really tasty and I would recommend the Vanilla cheese cake. There is a garden outside and whilst we didn't sit outside there were... More

I was reading through other reviews of this place and wondered if they referred to a different restaurant - then I found a reviewer back in February who had a similar experience. Went today (a Monday, perhaps that's the worst day?)expecting a reasonable,cheerful eating experience. We were shown to a room with 3 tables, whereby our table was very close... More

The fixed price menu is excellent value and vey very delicious. The whole menu is fabulous, whatever the time of day. The staff are friendly and welcoming and I love the small cosy rooms where you can sit & chat in a comfortable & elegant 'shabby chic' setting. Perfik!

Very nice place to visit for food or just call in for a drink. Very friendly staff and first class food. Reasonable price. Would advise to call and book first just in case they are busy which they might be.

I was one of a party of 40 walkers that recently ate at The Joiners Arms in Bloxham, near Banbury. The food was fantastic -beautifully cooked, piping hot and masses of it! The staff were excellent - very efficient and polite. I'll be back!

Great atmosphere, good choice of beer and fantastic specials nights, this pub has it all whether you're a local or a traveller. Best to book if you can as it's usually very busy.

Booked a table for four on a Saturday...lots of young staff about..probably a weekend job for them which met that service was questionable. The food was poor value for money and small portions to boot. The burgers had the smallest ramekin of coleslaw we have ever seen and the urges was completely lost in the bun. The fish and chips...
