About The Pointer
A Restaurant, Bar, Butchers and Farm. Serving fantastic, seasonal and thoroughly delicious food and drink.
Our attitude to food is pretty straightforward: we cook what is best on the day, using the seasonal produce we either grow ourselves on our Farm or obtain from local markets and suppliers. Beef and Pork comes from our own livestock herds and neighbouring farms who share our passion.

The Pointer Ratings and Reviews
Really enjoyable meal and nights stay
Great rooms with everything u cld think of. Only slight problem was it was too warm at night which stopped us sleeping well but opened the windows in the early hours which helped.
Option of a newspaper delivered to the room would be a nice touch for a lazy morning
I saw in the local paper that the pointer had received some awards by Sunday times and Michelin as their pub of the year. It’s off the beaten track for us but we had been to Bicester village so detoured to it. So very well worth the visit. Excellent food and service will definitely be back. Didn’t realise how pretty Brill is.
We had a lovely evening at the Pointer. Food and wine were wonderful. They had an unexpected rush at the bar after the local bonfire party we didn't get the drinks we ordered, but this is a small criticism of overall very good and pleasant service. The ambience was nice and it was lively and bustling, though restaurant tables are out of the bar so this was not intrusive. The low ceilings make it noisy, so perhaps not ideal for anyone who cannot hear very well. Overall, I would really recommend it.
I feel so lucky to live just five minutes from the Pointer. We enjoyed a Birthday meal for my Mum, food was exquisite, service was excellent and the atmosphere relaxing. I have been to the Pointer for Lunch, drinks and dinner and have always enjoyed my visit. Now the winter is here, the fires are warm and welcoming, with comfy sofa areas to relax and chill out. A Christmas must for that festive feeling.
My overall score is 5, this is because the service was very attentive. The Sunday lunch was lovely, and presented very well, with all the constituent parts having their own section of a very large plate. In my opinion, the only issue was that there was no greens included, I think their inclusion would have made the arrangement even more interesting.
Again, only my opinion, I thought the G&Ts were a little too expensive. Otherwise, a very nice way to spend a few hours enjoying some good food.
Fantastic well presented food. The steak is out of this world as well as the beef dripping butter.
Love eating here, staff are great and always welcoming. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
Try the butchers as were great meat at reasonable prices as well as locally sourced .
Relaxed, friendly, yet very attentive service throughout our visit. Most of their food comes from their own farm and this enriches the experience. The food is extremely good and has a welcome modern feel while being cooked very well indeed. And the bottled water is free of charge, making a very welcome change! This was our first visit and were delighted to have found this restaurant just 20 minutes from our home.
We had a wonderful Anniversary lunch at the Pointer last Sunday, the complimentary glasses of champagne were an unexpected pleasure.
The service was excellent, the food a delight and the wine list was one to ponder over
It couldn't have been any better
When your lunch starts with beef dripping butter on fresh crusty white bread, you know you're in for a treat. We had a fantastic lunch at The Pointer and were impressed with the delicious food and the interesting wine list. We would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and are looking forward to returning at Christmas with the family for a festive food extravaganza.
A great experience from start to finish. The staff were friendly and knowledgable with the right level of service that was attentive but not overbearing.
The choice on the menu was purposefully limited but varies often based on local supply, as the best food establishments always are. This meant that the food had to be exceptional and it was. I and my partner will return as soon as time allows in order to sample new dishes.
We had a long conversation with the executive chef the next morning regarding his philosophy and his passion was evident.
We would recommend eating here on any occasion that allows, you will not be disappointed.
We were a group of 9 family members celebrating a 60th birthday, we had the Sunday lunch menu which gave us a good choice as well as a traditional roast. The starters, main and dessert courses were delicious and were complemented by a good choice of beers and wines.
We would have liked the main courses to have included more vegetables for the price and the coffee was a small cup for the price of £5 - not good value.
We loved the the Pointer theme through out the pub, we partly chose it because we own a Pointer ourselves, as it added to the whole ambience and experience!
Overall a wonderful meal with good service and a great atmosphere.
This restaurant was chosen for a family meal to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent, there was a friendly atmosphere and our waiter was very attentive. We were not pressured to vacate the table afterwards, but chose to move to the comfy seats next to the restaurant after the meal. A very relaxed evening, with plenty of good food and wine. Those who chose to share the suckling pig were very happy with the flavour and tenderness of the meat, but struggled to eat the huge portions. The suggested wines to accompany the dishes were also good.
We arranged to meet friends at The Pointer as part of a trip to London. It was convenient for us and close for them.
On arrival we were shown to our table and given the drinks menu and wine list. We sampled three of the many Gin and Tonic options available, each Gin matched to a tonic and with appropriate garnish.
We all took the local charcuterie board as a starter and this was excellent. A good mixture of different meats and pickles.
For our main courses we had the locally reared ribeye steak and the fish and chips, it being Friday after all. The steak was excellent and accompanied by an appropriate sauce. The chips were heavenly, being crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside.
We took coffee as none of us had room for a desert. The bill was a pleasant surprise given the drinks and quality of the food.
I would recommend to anyone and will return when we are next in the area.
