Where is it?

Entering from the rear (from the garden) go immediately right into the conservatory (the Vine Room). Head for the door on the left (just before the wood burning stove) and go through. Head around to the right. The gents are on the right and females on the left.

What’s it like?

This really is the best Gastro Pub in the area, and you should love the food. This time around the Sea Bass was a work of art. All dishes were cooked to perfection and tasted excellent. But what about the toilets? Well, getting a flat and having to change a wheel on the way to Wytham meant an early visit to clean hands and a harder than usual test!

These are basically old style pub toilets that have, with a few simple touches, been made into a nice place to go. The d├ęcor is clean and bright, but not overdone. A chest of draws gives a homely feel. The soap dispenser is stainless steel and feels expensive; although it was not full enough for our greedy needs this time around. Although they have an electric dryer, they have the most luxurious paper towels you have ever come across. Along with a sink and mirror that are functional you end up with clever shabby chic that fits in entirely with this pub’s whole set up.


Marks out of 10:

8 for the clever simplicity.


Comments to the management:

Just right!
