The building is not that old, (probably Victorian) on the site of the original but nothing is level, floors dip and walls sway. Everything has seen better days. Accept this and the friendliness of the hosts overcomes any grumbles. Read less
Likes:
Great food, friendly atmosphere.
Dislikes:
Bathroom should be condemned.
Response from Oxford Arms:
Mr Dawson, sorry you were dissatisfied with your stay, however I think your review is rather exaggerated. Much of our pub was built in the 17th C but has a Victorian facade so I can understand your confusion. As to the bathroom, it is a pity you didn't voice your concerns during your stay, as we do listen and apreciate any feedback given to us, positive and negative, so we can resolve any issues. Thank you for complimenting our food, atmosphere and friendliness. we do appriciate the feedback

"What more do you need than a comfy bed, decent shower and good breakfast in clean surroundings."
Given a warm welcome, shown to our room. Good parking facilities - the room was adequate - quiet, the building was old - and parts quite worn and in need of decoration. This added to the charm - felt like an old jumper. ie. felt like someones home - not a hotel. Read less
Likes:
The friendliness of the staff - the evening meal was really tasty - well done and great value for money. Breakfast was very good.
Dislikes:
The wifi did not work - and there was no TV in the room - It wasnt clear on the booking site that there was no TV - although other rooms specified TV and this room - no 6 did not specify a TV.
Response from Oxford Arms:
Hi, many thanks for reviewing your stay with us. I'm sorry the wifi did not work on this occasion, Kington is on catchup,for wifi and our connection and speed is always hit and miss, sometimes great, other times not so. With regards to there being no TV in your room, I'm now aware that our website is quite ambiguous, unintentionally, and I'll endeavour to change it.
We really appreciate your input as without these we can't make changes. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Sadie

We were welcomed by the landlord and shown to a very nice room which overlooked the side lane and was therefore quiet. I had an excellent dinner and breakfast was also very good. Couldn't fault it.

Liked the atmosphere of the old pub and the staff was super friendly. There is a good car park.
Dislikes:
Dirty and old rugs in the bedroom and bath is the only reason I would not recommend this to friends.
