A fabled pub and it does live up to the hype - the interior is unspoilt and charming in the extreme and the village exceptionally pretty with its row of thatched cottages. We didn't try the food but service was very friendly and the range of beers - the full gamut of Wadworth beers + a couple of well chosen guests. Overall splendid but hard to get to without a designated driver while it probably provides a great excuse to escape the Cornbury festival when it's on - especially given the customarily shocking bill that event tends to encourage.

Stayed in Great Tew this december with friends (not at the pub) and visited the pub for lunch and drinks. Well it was my first visit but i thought it was great. The table we had was for 9 people, the welcome was genuine even though we weren't locals in what is a very tiny village. Food was perfectly decent and it all arrived at the same time, something other pubs might like to work on, i'll forgive the slightly inflated price as it's well worth paying to keep a pub like this in business. The selection of ale was good, the 6X was in perfect condition and we stayed for a good few hours soaking up the atmosphere with plenty of beer. Would make a point of going back if i'm ever in the area again. Keep up the good work.

What a shame to see such reviews, the location and building are truley amazing is a real shame to see this place in the daldrums.
i would rather not leave any comment re quality issues etc as it seems most others will do that generally. Having had the pleasure of working for Wadworth up untill a couple of years ago i am sure they are working hard to put things right. This pub is amazing and i am sure it will return to its former glory.

Based on my first and likely only visit to this beautiful pub, I've given it an 8 out of 10.

The beer range was excellent, as was the beer quality, the food (although pricey) was very nice and I received a good portion of whitebait for the money.

The inglenook fire was just starting up which lent a lovely ambience to the place, which is a truly lovely building and I could have quite happily spent the day in a cosy corner getting slowly sozzled.

I can't compare to the former days as I only went there recently, but I'd go back. Staff were friendly and helpful too by the way!

I give this pub a rating of 2, 1 for the the lovely old building and location, and 1 for a nice pint of 6X. After that it's downhill rapidly. We made the mistake of eating there. The menu is limited, the prices are high and the quality of the food is decidedly average. I can only assume that that high praise lavished upon this place in the good pub guide refers to a previous era, it's certainly not worthy of it now. The worst 50 I ever spent!
