XIX-century English Pub and Eating House

“Civilised and friendly stripped-stone pub with enjoyable food and good wine choice.” by The Good Pub Guide

Sunday Lunch Menu

85% of the ingredients we use are local produce, a further 12% are from rest of the UK and 3% are from other European countries:


Roast sirloin of 28-day aged Oxfordshire beef with gravy, duck fat roasted potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables of the day £19.00

Just choose how would you prefer your roast to be cooked.


This menu is pre-order only. Orders need to be placed by 6 pm Thursday, 4th June because of the fresh ingredients have to be ordered and prepared. Ordering later we cannot guarantee full selection from the menu.

Available for collection only between 12 noon and 2 pm on Sunday, 7th June.

You do NOT need to bring your own containers because we shall pack everything into special compostable and eco-friendly takeaway boxes. You can bring your own carrier bags.

We try to minimise any contact and therefore, please read carefully the below instructions.

Payment: We are kindly asking you to make pre-payment over the phone when ordering or you can bring cash with you on the day of collection. If cash, then exact money would be preferred.

Collection: Collection will be at time slots from the back gate in a car park. There will be a table for collection placed to keep a social distance and where you can pay by cash if you were not able to pay earlier.

To place your order please call us on 01869 350208 or email:

We were very busy again last week – to avoid disappointment please order as soon as possible.

We look forward to seeing you all soon even from a social distance.

Menu may change every week. Sign up for our newsletter or social media for regular updates:

Opening Hours Update:

You are always welcome at the Oxford Arms...

During lockdown we have been welcoming customers old and new through our "Eat Out at Home" service and this will continue for the time being. Many people have enjoyed being able to order from our menu and have said they want us to keep it up - so we are doing just that!

While we want nothing more than to open the doors and have a busy pub once again, we also value the health and safety of our customers and staff. For this reason, we do not plan to reopen this week, but  will keep the situation under review and will let you know when the big day is on the horizon!

In the meantime, we would love to see and speak to you in person (give us a call and try out the take away menu) and also on social media. If you've not been following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram you will need to catch up - we have been on BBC TV and national radio!

Thank you for your phenomenal support!


COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS AT THE OXFORD ARMS: Please read a message from Bryn Jones 


The Oxford Arms is an award-winning XIX century dining pub in Oxfordshire run by chef patron Bryn Jones since 2003.

We serve good, honest food with a minimum of fuss and maximum flavour.

The menu changes seasonably with daily specials to use even more local produce (some of the ingredients are from our organic Kitchen Garden and Kirtlington village itself).

Our real log fire will keep you warm in winter and our beautiful garden patio will keep you cool during hot summer days.

You will be looked after from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave.
