trader is a beautiful place to eat, in the centre of a pleasant village. Car parking at the pub is no problem. The food is lovely, the choice is good and the prices are reasonable for the high quality of food, service and environment on offer. The restaurant runs near to capacity often. The web site contains many details.

Consistently good food at Oxford City prices of a similar standard in delightful ambience. It is close to Oxford in a village with lovely views of the Chilterns. Well maintained garden with tables, ideal to eat out on a summer day. Easy parking. Helpful and polite staff.

This pub has now been truly Chef & Brewer-ed, and all its individuality has been lost. Pity.

What I like best about this place is that it's peaceful and pretty. The food is nice and the service is fine but a little standoffish for me. Good place to go for a quiet lunch or dinner when you are taking your time.

Just back from Lunch with my 16 year old grandson. Been there at least 10 times with various memebers of my family. Brilliant over Easter when my 3 year old grand daughter was around. Food never fails to be good and they provided entertainment for young ones. Also do a Golden Years special for over 60's on Monday to Friday 12-6. Excellent service

This pub has been known as an old man's boozer for as long as I can remember, so my visits in the past have been limited. I was pleasantly surprised when visiting recently as I'd discovered that trader now has a completely new landlady who has really turned the place around. Previously it was dreary and depressing and smelt of stale Ale but now the lovely Ange has completely redecorated the place and shifted its focus to the restaurant crowd - and it's working! In addition to this she has increased the options of drinks available and now does some good value offers. By comparison, the drinks here seemed to be a fair bit cheaper than the nearby Wetherspoons. The food itself, I'm informed, is 'absolutely gorgeous' according to a friend who now frequents this pub with her family. Personally I've only tried their desserts after scoffing my face in the Oxford Nando's only a few hours earlier (Kinda wish I'd saved myself some money and eaten at trader instead...). This dessert however was pretty amazing for pub grub. Later on in the evening, and after a few beers, I had a chat to the chef who came down after his shift for a pint. He informed me that he tries to make everything completely fresh that he can and that the food uses his own recipes. For such a small pub, the menu is quite extensive. There are options to suit all diners from a steak to BBQ Chicken. I would absolutely recommend this place and hope Ange stays as landlady for some time. This will definitely be a place that I'll visit again, I'm determined to try most of the menu!
