Recently refurbished, the pub retains its splendid thatched roof and the stables have been refurbished to offer the weary traveller home from home accommodation with en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities. Just a few steps across the stone courtyard you enter the pub where you will receive a cheery welcome. A fine line up of cask ales and good wines await you. Decide whether you want to sit at the bar and join the local banter or find a place to relax in front of the fire. The Talkhouse is a popular watering hole for business people from Oxford and the surrounding area as well as the locals of Stanton St John and other villages so theres seldom a silent moment in the bar. The Talkhouse offers a full a la carte menu to choose from, cooked from the freshest ingredients from local suppliers and all food is cooked to order. The Baked crab crusted cod, poached salsify with new season garlic, is delicious! Four recently refurbished, beautifully presented, cottage style, ground floor en-suite double rooms are available for our guests wishing to stay a while. Set in a pretty courtyard setting all guests are invited to enjoy our traditional Talkhouse breakfast, in our restaurant or brought to your door. So come on down to The Talkhouse today and experience this wonderful pub for yourself.
