We are proud to serve hand crafted 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 fantastic craft beers, we serve a great selection of lagers, ciders and stouts as well as an array of quality wines, spirits and soft drinks.

You can always get a great coffee here too. Freshly ground beans for every cup - made just how you like it - Cappuccino, Latte, Americano, Espresso. You choose. Why not treat yourself to a cake, muffin or some biscuits too.

The Punchbowl Inn is, in fact, the closest pub to the main gates of one of the nation's most splendid stately

homes and gardens - Blenheim Palace - The estate of the Duke of Marlborough

and former home of the late Winston Churchill.

“We stayed here for a couple of nights in June.

The Punchbowl is situated right in the middle of Woodstock and has its own car park. The owners are delightful and very helpful, the food is good quality home cooked food which goes down very well in a town where there are quite a few restaurants, breakfast is excellent and the rooms are bright, spacious and clean,

what more could you ask for, we will certainly go back.”
