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
We went on New Years Day after walking the Great Train Robbery loop . It was one of the best pub lunches we have had , the pheasant was superb. The service was very good and we only found out at the end that New Years Eve celebrations had gone on until 3 am, you would never have guessed the staff were all very attentive.
It deserves the awards that it has been given and the village of Brill with its distinctive windmill is worth a detour.
The Pointer at Brill never fails to deliver. The menu changes often, local produce is used whenever possible, the dishes are tasty, imaginative, and delightfully presented. If I have a criticism it is that the ambience of the dining area could be improved by softening the lighting and the seating to make it cosier to match the lovely bar area. The included photograph is of the legendary beef butter... it may not look like beef, or butter, but I can tell you that it tastes FAR better than it looks!
Brilliant - had lunch with my (now adult) son of a rainy horrid day. The Pointer was warm and welcoming. I have been there once before and had steak, which they excel at. I asked for a medium rare rib-eye but seared and crunchy on the outside. That is exactly what the served up!
All the other food from starters through to dessert including the bread and dripping butter and petit fours were all brilliant.
Brill is a bit off the beaten track but the Pointer is worth the drive.
THE best Sunday lunch we have EVER had, from start to finish the food was a joy. The beef dripping butter with the bread - stunning and one not to miss. The roast potatoes an absolute triumph, every part of the meal had the most incredible taste - out only regret is we don't live closer!!!! Absolute gem of a place
We had heard great things about the Pointer and whilst we travelled some distance - the welcome, meal and overall ambience was superb. My wife really loved the way the food was presented. I had to chuckle however, because the bread is cooked to order and brought to the table in a brown paper bag - somewhat similar to a Mac Donald’s. Its taste and texture is however in a different league.
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.
