HIP HIP HOORAY - SOME LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Terrific news to share

We've just signed off the revamp that we were planning pre Covid days.

The Punchbowl is about to be transformed into a much more cosy space with comfy sofas, calm lighting, fresh & vibrant colours and a whole new approach.

We will be open for breakfast, coffee & cakes throughout the day - enjoy here or take away.

We're introducing a range of handmade, sourdough stone baked pizzas to eat in or take away - cooked in our stone based oven or chilled for you to cook at home.

Some lovely bistro style dishes at great value for money prices to help you stretch your pound further.

All in all, its going to be more casual with more choice and open longer.

We hope you will support us.

Our aim is to open on Friday May 21st but watch this space - we hope to launch our pizzas to take away a week or so earlier at cracking prices to let you try them before hand.

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

The Punchbowl with its characterful accommodation is the ideal place to stay whether for its own interesting history, to see Blenheim Palace, or to visit Churchill's grave in the nearby village of Bladon.
Oxford City with its colleges, museums and dreaming spires is within easy access by car or the convenient and regular bus service.
Woodstock is a town steeped in history and is situated just to the north of Oxford. It began as a coach stop around the Royal hunting lodge, which later became the site of Blenheim Palace, stately home of the Dukes of Marlborough since the early 1700's.
The town has an active local business community and makes provision for most everyday needs of visitors without having to venture too far: Post Office, bank, supermarket, newsagent, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and a wide range of shops are all situated in the town centre. There are lots of local folk with boundless character, all forming the bustling community which we are
sure you will enjoy experiencing during your visit.

RUSTIC & CHARACTERFUL BAR

We are proud to serve artisan ales from 2 local breweries, each with a great heritage.

Arkell's brewery was established in Swindon in 1843 to keep the great men who built the world famous Great Western Railway watered.

In excess of 170 years later, the brewery is still going strong today.

We also feature the occasional guest ale from the Donnington brewery, based in the heart of the Cotswolds at Stow on the Wold.

Alongside our artisan ales, we serve a great selection of lagers, ciders and stouts as well as an array of quality wines, spirits and soft drinks.

We stock a broad range of craft beers from around the world - perfectly chilled to enjoy.

We serve great coffee all day every day too - not to mention our indulgent cakes and sweet treats.

Make sure you try our ultimate gooey, crackled fudge brownie made fresh here.

 

PIZZAS & MORE

We are very proud of our hand stretched, fresh sour dough pizza's. Cooked properly in our authentic stone based oven, you'll love them.
Interesting toppings to choose from to eat here or take away.
We serve our Pizza's all day from 11am until 10pm - 11pm Friday & Saturday night.
