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

UK and Local Grown Seasonal Produce

As one ‘Sustainable Food’ report noted, Seasonal food can offer better taste and be more affordable, while local food can provide freshness, reduce food miles, offer benefits to local farmers and communities and help reconnect consumers with where their food comes from.

Local foods support your local economy: every pound spent generates twice as much income for the local economy.

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.

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.
