We were very happy with our room which was in a separate purpose built block. We ate dinner in the Inn as my daughter is vegetarian and was very impressed with their home made choices. The full English breakfast was excellent with an option for vegetarian sausages and the home made preserves such as rhubarb and fruits of the forest an unexpected treat! Excellent location for our visit to Oxford, Bicester and the village of Burford in the Cotswolds.
