Soho House are branching out with this new motel concept, now open on the Oxford-Swindon road. A modern take on American diner cuisine (also available to take away), with a general store and affordable rooms for overnight stays.

Soho House’s relatively new motel concept (which now also has a sibling in Bristol) aims at the affordable staycation market and incorporates a modern take on the classic US diner into its offering, complete with retro Americana and brunch-friendly dishes. Too few reports for a rating as yet, but the odd bit of feedback about “great burgers”.

With blazing neon signage, Soho House have branched out with this new motel concept, now open on the Oxford-Swindon road, with a general store and affordable rooms for overnight stays. A modern take on the “classic US diner”: early reports say it’s “very smart and cool” but that – in keeping with the brand’s DNA – the atmosphere’s rated higher than the cooking. Particularly tipped for breakfast; and if you’re on the road, you can eat Drive Thru.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
