One review of “The Ben Jonson”

    2nd November 2017

    Our recent visit to the Ben Jonson at Weston on the Green, just 5 mins from Bicester Village and close to Oxford, was on a dark and misty October evening.

    Our table was booked for 7:30pm and we arrived a little early, on arrival we were greeted to a warm and friendly welcome by the bar staff. We were provided with a comprehensive list of beers, wines and soft drinks and opted for a large glass of pinot grigio and pint of Morretti. We had been offered to sit in the bar which was full of ambience and charm with a roaring log burner at one end of the bar and an open fire at the other, we decided to make our way to the dining area which we shown to by our lovely waiter Mugu.

    We were provided with our menus (which were clearly marked with all the potential allergen ingredients) and Mugu proceeded to explain the menu and the available soup and pie of the day options. We decided to opt for the soup of the day (mushroom with truffle oil) and the Black Pudding Scotched Hens Egg, the soup came with warm ciabatta and the Black Pudding with a salad garnish and house chutney. The starters were fresh and full of flavour, the portion sizes were more than ample for even the hungrier pallet. For the main course we had the Homemade chicken Kiev with potato mash, creamy mushroom sauce and side of seasonal vegetables, and the Homemade Pie of the day (Chicken, mushroom with a white wine sauce) with potato mash, seasonal vegetables and a rich and smooth gravy. As per the starters the main courses were delicious, the portions are plentiful so we opted to share a desert which was the exquisite Lemon Posset with pink peppercorn shortbread.

    Looking out the window from the dining room we saw an extensive garden area with a number of tables spread across a patio through to a lawned area, ideal for the summer or for anyone that would be brave enough for October alfresco dining! I cannot fault the Ben Jonson the current owners have invested a lot of time and money refurbishing the premises and the money has been well spent. We had a super meal with great service and value. We recommend you visit soon you will not be disappointed.
