user reviews of Royal Standard, Headington

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

My wife and I popped in for lunch today. We found the food excellent (granted that it was pub grub rather than aiming to be a gourmet experience), had no complaints about the beer and coffee and the service prompt and attentive.

Perhaps this was helped by being a quiet Wednesday lunchtime but I would certainly go back for another lunch there.

This place is awful.

Terrible music and a garish decor greet you and it just gets worse from there.

Was served a blatantly wrong pint of abbot which was churlishly replaced. A table of 10 of us were there for food. The staff seemed incredulous with rage that we would deign to come in in such numbers and then proceeded to be rude, obnoxious and serve really bad food, if any at all. One of our party thought it would be amusing to stick it out and see how long it would take to get served. An hour and 15 minutes, which the staff denied until he produced the receipt which showing it was actually an hour and twenty minutes! incredible. Another amusing one was where a server presented one of our party with a plate of bangers and mash, absolutely nothing near what he had ordered and then got upset that he did not want it!! This particular server was a right horror, an effeminate chap, possibly italian.
No need to go here with the FAR superior Britannia being so near.

Usually sells reasonably priced pub food. 3 ales (Speckled Hen is fairly good in there). Bar billiards table is an added bonus, but I seem to remember an inordinate amount of "pub tat" through the place!
