Update
Eagle IPA still on, along with Bombardier and Bath Ales Gem (£1.90 a half). The L-shaped bar is partly weathered stone, the remainder dark wooded and the generous restaurant area (deserted on a Monday evening) is down a few steps in what seems like an extended area at the back of what was the original building. There's a raised area to the left of the bar which is rather 'front-roomy', housing a large sofa, weathered rug, and fireplace with book shelf either side: a large black Lab was sprawled in front of the fireplace. A 'Definitive Oxford Pub Crawl' poster with hand-drawn images of some (not all) of the city's pubs sitting above third-high wood panelling opposite the bar caught my eye during my stay, so I played spot the closed pub (there were 12) during the deadly silence of my stay.

Original Review - April 2014 (BITE)
Pleasant pub-restaurant in this idyllic small village north of Oxford. A Charles Wells house, so the range was limited, but the Eagle IPA went down well nonetheless. The church opposite adds to the tweeness, and if you can get over the cars coursing along the road if sitting outside the front, then this is a worthwhile detour from the hit-and-miss pubs of Bladon and Long Hanborough.
