Great pub, regular bus service into Oxford just up the road.
Lovely big area to park in the car park or on the grassed area at the top of the car park.
We’ve had many meals in the pub lunch snacks, evening meals and Sunday lunches all have been fantastic, lovely friendly staff.

We stayed for one night at this fine pub in Old Marston. No facilities for MHs bar the pub toilet. Beautifully refurbished inside and out and welcoming. Buses 14a, 14 and 13 to Oxford centre. Good sized flat car park at rear. BP garage, Co-op supermarket and Fish and chip shop 10 minute walk. Ate in the pub otherwise £20 charge for overnight, is more than fair for location. Also 15 minute walk to the Thames at the Victoria Arms for beautiful outdoor seating by the river. Will definitely return.

Recently spent two nighgs here. Great location, nice pub serving decent food at good prices. The garden has been refurbished and has large seating areas. Pub offers lovely flat parking and room for probably 12 or so Motorhomes - worth reserving in advance, its very popular. for visiting Oxford, bus stop across the road, 14a into Oxford just over £7 return (for two). We woukd highly recommend and would definitely return.

Stopped for two nights. Staff were very friendly and asked that we at least buy a drink (not a problem). Didn't have any food as pub is having a refurb but large garden was great. Lots of large motorhomes, but good to see a couple of T25s and their German owners. A great picturesque walk into Oxford too. Toilets were available and very clean.

Great stopover for visiting Oxford. As others said, walked to bus stop and got 13 bus in and out of Oxford. About 15mins bus journey which cost <£10 for family of 4. We phoned ahead and were very welcomed. Large flat parking area to rear of pub. The pub itself is fabulous. Very friendly staff. We were there on Monday but food is not served on Mondays so we enjoyed a few drinks. Large outdoor area with table tennis table. Would definitely recommend and return.

Really good stopover good sized carpark
6 good sized motorhomes here when we stopover.
food was ok and drinks
dog friendly
slight noise from the nearby road but didn't really bother us.
we walked into Oxford good walk through fields and parks
not for the faint hearted 2 miles into Oxford
good stopover for viewing Oxford
plenty of doggy walks
no facilities except using the pub toilet
which is fine for us being totally self sufficient.

I agree with 99% of previous comments, but worth noting that their kitchen is closed on Mondays, so no food.
5 mins walk away there's a Fish & Chip shop & a burger and Pizza one too. Diana was great.

Made very welcome stayed 2 nights good food and beer very friendly locals watched a great traditional local game of Aunt Sally. Great stop for visiting Oxford. Bus stop 2mins from pub, and every 10mins into Oxford centre. I'd Phone ahead because it can get busy. 4 other vans when we stopped.

Brilliant spot, lovely pub nice area for campers, chap who runs the pub is very Campervan friendly, although does have some issues with folk from the continent who don’t understand that it’s not an aire, however he was philosophical and welcoming. Beautiful area highly recommend.

A pleasant country style pub. The entrance to the parking was just before the pub on the left, and is a little tight if your a large unit. The staff are friendly. There are no facilities at the pub. The food is general pub grub and we felt the fish platter to share with only 8 chips and a small amount of tartare sauce a little lacking. House wine at £17 a bottle we felt was expensive.

Stayed at the at the weekend. Food, staff and locals were superb, with a big outdoor seating area and play park for the kiddies.. There was quite a few of us there, maybe 5 big Motorhomes and 3 campers..

Nice pub, friendly staff. Grass area. Be aware that you might spend more on food and booze than the average price of a campsite. For us it would have been cheaper to go to a campsite :), but it was very useful to try out our leisure battery. Vegan and vegetarian food on the menu.
Around 15 min cycling to city centre.

Great location, perfectly leveled parking at the back of the pub. Great and warm hospitality and good variety of food/drinks at very reasonable price.
Ordered steak, nachos, some soups and a jacked potato and all was very tasty and nicely prepared.
Overall the staff is extremely helpful and friendly.
Bus stop to Oxford center (No 13) is a couple of minutes away...
No problems in leaving the MoHo parked while in the city centre...
They are also in BritStop 2018 book!

Stayed for 2 nights, easy location to find, lovely rural setting yet close enough to ring road. 100 mtr walk to bus stop where the 13 or x13 bus takes you straight into the city or a fantastic cycle path near by.
The pub itself as a large car park, great beer garden for summer !!! Dog friendly pub with good choice of pub food and beers of course!!!

Well worth a visit

Handy stopover to the North East of Oxford near the ring road . Lots of parking space and some grass to the rear. Nearby bus stop to City Centre. Nice atmosphere in the Pub. Enjoyed the Peaky Blinders beer and Veggie food available on request which I enjoyed. We didnt phone ahead in January 18 but they made us welcome. No extra charge but, as ever, we always buy food and beer at pubs. Would stay again. Quiet sleep. Gate locked overnight.

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. Staff & Landlords are really friendly & helpful. They now charge a fee of £20 to stay in their car park due to foreign Moho'ers turning up late, not drinking or eating in the pub, sleeping over & leaving a mess! If you eat/drink in the pub you get the £20 back! Great base for getting the bus into Oxford. Food is great (although a little pricey). Grass or gravel pitches available. Sharp turn into car park so not suitable for very large units.

Very nice little stop. Good sized grass area at the back of the car park for vans, with another van also overnighting whilst we were there. Free WiFi and readily available toilet facilities when the pub is open. Gates to the car park locked after closing time and opened in the morning for added security. Sadly we arrived too late for food (stops serving at 2100) but drink was good and reasonably priced. Good location for transport links.

Great place to stay overnight to visit Oxford which is a 10min bus ride away just a 2min walk to the bus stop. Landlord very friendly and happy to let us stay 2nights whilst we visited the city. Good pub food reasonably priced varied menu and good real ales. Must phone ahead. Definitely come back when visiting Oxford again. Good size pub car park bottom part grass the rest hard standing no facilities. Nice local pub with large seating area outside and children's play area.
