if you have three hours to have a pub meal then go here. we were there on a saturday night with a booked table. it took 45 minutes to get a starter and we received our meain meal 15 minutes before our taxi came at 10.30. we had been there since 7.55pm. dont bother booking! you wont be served any different if you had walked off the street. no one gets priority. a lot of the vegeatbles were deep fried eg. duchess potato - not very nice deep fried!!!

Admittedly I prefer pubs that aren't what I call "tarted up", that is they retain a pub-like feel, neighbourhood friendly and not too matchy-matchy. This is not one of those, happily. It retains a cosy feel and serves a good choice of beers, and an excellent choice of food!

We were very happy with our meal, large portions (almost too large!) and friendly service. Also noted they have a long vegetarian menu, so would highly recommend to veggies. Enjoyed the beers we tried too. And always happy to be served by such friendly staff!

Best Pub for Miles - - being a Bletchtonian I guess you can say I'm biased but when 13 people from Kirtlington ( nanny landers!) come to spend Lamb Ale at the Blacks head says a lot not in 34 years did I think that would happen!

For a non biased view visit in Oxford website review by Richard Rosser.

Any Service, Price & food Quality issues.... same as for the Jacket potato - - why come and moan about it on here? when you could have resolved the situation on the day.

Is it me? or a coincidence that so many negative comments about my local come just as a refurbished pub not too far from Bletchingdon has reopened?

Worst food I have eaten out for over 3 years. Starter had mould on bread. Salad was like cheap school food with old iceberg lettuce. The scallops came in a soggy mush with rice and garlic bread. The steak came with a pepper sauce that was so peppery it made you sneeze and cough. Both of us felt quite nauseous after the meal. I haven't complained about food out for years so this isn't a regular occurrence. It would be forgiveable if they weren't charging expensive gastropub prices. The meal cost around sixty quid for two and really wasn't worth half that. Avoid.
