Fabulous old inn in the heart of Woodstock. Warm, happy and hospitable, with robust British cooking and 3 super new bedrooms above

In Woodstock – picturesque estate town to magnificent Blenheim Palace – is an old pub with a new lease of life: Johnny and Damion, seasoned operators, have turned the former boozer around. Enter a large welcoming space, be-rugged and pattern floor-tiled, with a green-painted bar and a roaring fire beneath a copper hood, sturdy tables for eating and drinking, and wing-back chairs in elegant leather. Behind the bar: real ales, cocktails, well-priced wines, and an impressive selection of soft drinks. In the dark beamed restaurant is the best of old British with a firm eye on provenance: pints of crispy whitebait from Brixham, duck salads, hearty pies (including vegetarian), crumbles and brûlées. It’s a pretty stone building on Market Street, blessed with a large courtyard behind.
