Took my family there for a meal, there were all age ranges in our group. The youngest being 6 and 7, well behaved kids. We were quizzed over their ages rather aggressively, then when they were satisfied that the children were over their 5 years and over rule, we were "allowed" to have a meal!! They made us and in particular, our children feel very unwelcome!! The woman who owns the place, is as false as my nails and I hear she is high up in the Chamber of Commerce or something! She is clearly not a fan of children and made that known. The kids were scared of her!! We couldn't wait to get out!! The food and drinks are overpriced too. So needless to say, we will never go there again!

Took my Nana there with my partner for his birthday. The food was good overall, but the vegetarian breakfast was overpriced, charging extra for a very small amount of scrambled egg instead of a fried egg and burger came without chips.

Breakfast coming in at £11+ pictures below (to be fair I asked for no mushroom or tomato) but was still poor.

A great place to go to in Witney high street. Indoor and outdoor seating and food served until 3. Very comfotable and well worth a visit.

The restaurant was recommended by local bank staff and it was very good. Friendly efficient staff and the food, both the main meal and desserts was delicious.
We sat in the garden area to catch the sun on one of the non smoking tables which is a good idea.
Unfortunately smoke drifts and did so from some smokers so that made our dining experience less pleasant.

A great pub, nice decor. Friendly staff and a great outdoor area. Easy for time to fly past you as you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
