    Amazing service from the moment we arrived, friendly staff who seated us very quickly and opened the closed area. Food was just simple and incredible., that’s all there is to say really and desserts were top notch. We had the tiramisu which was one of the best I’ve ever had!

    Best breakfast ever! Fantastic buttermilk pancakes with bacon and eggs Benedict . They even changed the ham to bacon for us and cooked the eggs how we liked them. Nothing was too much trouble

    Usually this place is outstanding but they seem to have changed their opening hours, service was a bit of a disaster when we arrived but improved when we had waiting staff, a number of things weren’t available from the menu. It was just a bit of a disappointment overall whilst the food was nice as always the other points deterred from this. Such a shame as we usually love this place but it just wasn’t the experience we are used to.

    Menu great, service good although food came very quickly - they want to turn the tables quickly. The food was expensive, probably by virtue of the fact that they have a captive audience in Bicester.

    Staff very helpful and welcoming, good selection of food and drinks. Most of our meals were very good but the dish of roast potatoes was overcooked- we did mention this and waiter did apologise, however would have liked a reduction in the cost of this item at the very least- but not offered. However, we would go again as we like the menu.

    The food was nice but the service has a lot more to be desired. Trying to order food was a task as it was hard to get any attention to be able to order, or when you did get someone’s attention it seemed as though it was an imposition asking for their attention. We came here to celebrate both myself and and my husbands birthdays, which was added onto the booking. This was not at all acknowledged & when the bill finally arrived there was an item saying ‘happy birthday £0.00’ - I questioned this and we were asking whether it was someone’s birthday, which we responded to say it was both of ours. The lady said that we should have received something but we didn’t get anything at all. She went off to investigate but then never came back. We got bored of waiting so got up & left, but as we were waiting I walked past the lady and she muttered a “sorry” under her breath. Such a shame really & I don’t think I’ll be coming back again, especially for the money too!!

    Overall the food was great, staff were attentive and the experience was lush. I asked for a cocktail for my partners birthday and staff were ready and primed as soon as we arrived The calamari was time for… perfectly fluffy, with a lemon aioli that paired perfectly. The other items (steak, roast chicken, creamy spinach and chips) were well prepared, tasty and definitely on the list of items to reorder. Cocktails could’ve been more fruity/sweet, but everything was excellent.

    The background music was overbearing (way too loud) and really negatively impacted on the experience. Service was unco-ordinated - numerous waiting staff coming to ask the same questions - felt like we were being rushed out. Food was actually very good.

    Booked this at the last minute as meeting my Sister and Mum - who is diabetic - needed to be sure we could get a table and eat. What I would not recommend are the toilets - the ladies are poorly signposted and very DARK - it is very confusing as you cannot see where you are going and wonder then at the cleanliness - why would you keep a sanitary area dark? Consequently I sat myself down on a wet seat - yuck! They are quite a contrast from the very modern toilets in the actual 'village' area.
