Good campsite, very cheap (5 for a tent in peak season). Very nice pub, very much recommend the food and the local beer. Only issue was, as others have pointed out, the dogs (St Bernard's I think?) from the neighbours that barked through the night on and off, and came into the field in the morning, coming right up to the tent which made our dog scared, and helping itself to the dogs food before I ushered it away. I think better fencing is required to separate the pub and campsite from the waste processing place where the dogs live.

Staff friendly and very welcoming to dogs. Will definitely keep in mind if in the area again/recommending to a friend!

Decent sized field at the back of a very good and welcoming pub and only 10 including hook up and a shower and toilet. If there is better value I would like to know where. We didn't try the shower and toilet as we have them in the 'van so can't comment. The field was a bit uneven and on a slope but the ramps coped with it ok. We decided to eat in the pub and boy were we glad that we did. It was excellent and plentiful. We will go again and would highly recommend it. We had booked a tour of Hook Norton brewery (about a mile away in the village) which was brilliantly done. The guide obviously had a passion for his job (and I guess the beer) and made the tour fascinating. Top marks!

We have stayed here on two occasions now for a weekend, mainly as we have friends nearby. A very dog friendly place, and Pub too, so be warned if this not for you. And yes I did step in it!

Great food from the Pub. If it is wet you may struggle getting up the sloped field from the carpark so drive round the back and come through the gate downhill to you pitch. Not sure of facilities as we used our own.

Very cheap! Pub food was really lovely, as were beers and cider. Great place to stay and visit local brewery at Hook Norton. They also have accommodation in pub so serve breakfast in the mornings, which campers are welcomed to come in for! Grass had been cut before our stay but had obviously grown quite long before hand, so smelly damp straw left on ground. Noisy neighbours with large barking dogs who wandered in and out of site, do rather spoil an otherwise basic but nice place. Our advice would be to pitch or park as far away from boundary hedge as possible to limit noise from barking and skips being moved about at skip hire firm.

Echoing the previous reviewer, this is a good basic campsite behind an excellent pub, with great Hook Norton beers and impressive pub food. It is very dog friendly. We spent a pleasant evening by the log fire with our two dogs. The landlord is friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. The site is tidy, with usual facilities: water, EHU, chemical disposal, toilets (accessible when pub open). There are some good footpaths in the area and a number of attractions including Rollright Stones and the Hook Norton brewery. The site was quiet at night, although there was some traffic noise during the day.

One issue however which does need addressing: the waste site next door (not a problem in itself) has two free roaming guard dogs, who wandered round the campsite at intervals, coming quite close to our van. This happened at 4am and my husband had to get up to shoo them away. There was also a substantial amount of dog mess in the camping field which was unpleasant. We had to clear up four lots before we could put up our awning. I would not recommend this site for children for this reason. The addition of some more fencing around the site would prevent this problem and enhance the place considerably.

A bargain though at 10 a night and a good location so we will return.

Stayed for 2 nights end of October 2013, Entrance to pitches is not through the pub car park but a gateway round the corner, which is a bit tight, but ok if you swing across the other side of the road to enter. Site seems to be going through a major upgrade, new fencing separates the pub garden from the camping area, new electrics, water and pitch markers, with the ground work for hard standing pitches being started. Very clean elsan point and waste water point at back of pub. Pub itself is a proper country pub, open fires three Hook Norton real ales, in superb condition. Ate in the pub both nights with no complaints, land lord and all staff very polite and helpful. Would have to mention how dog friendly the bar is with a huge wine glass of doggie treats, free to all, on the bar.

Local area visited Chipping Norton, not to much there but Sainsbury's for supplies. Hook Norton brewery which has a gift shop and offers brewery tours. Finished the afternoon off in Banbury which has a proper market on a Saturday. Very handy for exploring the Cotswolds and will be back with friends.
