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


Whole Lobsters at the Oxford Arms!


The weather has got worse in Cornwall. Fishermen are battling through but we will need orders 🦞 for this weekend by 6 pm on Wednesday afternoon.

Whole lobsters with our kitchen garden mixed leaf salad, mayonnaise and string chips or with new potato salad £70.00 (served cold).

They are approximately a kilo weight uncooked lobster. We order lobsters by special request from St Ives’ day boats. Arrive live on the day of serving.

No special tools needed – just a fork and determination!
(We break them into halves and crack the claws )

If you would like to order EAT OUT AT HOME LOBSTERS or for eating inside for this weekend (Friday – Sunday) we need you to place your whole lobster order and payment by phone / email before 6 pm Wednesday.

Limited numbers of lobsters and time slots available.

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.
