This pub closed at least 10 years ago. Now a house.

Worked at Harwell in the 80s and last drank at what was a wonderful unspoiled pub in '91. They featured this as a place where the nuclear scientists would discuss plasma physics from the local fussion experiment at the nearby Culham labs in a documentary many moons ago. Went out of my way to find it in 02 to find it was shut. Returned once more when it was a short lived B&B before the owner developed it, or sold it, for purely residential use. The owner was the former landlord but complained that it was not a great place to run, siting if I recall correctly biker gangs. My memories of biker gangs in the area was not of hells angels but guys who went round on a variety of machines, many of them classic British bikes. All a great shame.

Sad - was a bit of a local classic.

Vufinder is correct. Long gone and sadly missed.

The Machine Man has been closed for long time (2001?). It was a fine village pub with excellent ale and food but was bought by a speculator who ran it as a private B&B establishment for several years until he successfully had it de-licensed and then sold it for redevelopment as housing. A great loss.
