The pub is owned by Fullers but run as a tenancy and not as a managed house.

Description
We are a Classic English pub in the centre of Chipping Norton. We sell 6 real ales and locally sourced home-cooked food. We are well known for our fantastic pies and Sunday roasts. Next to the theatre, we are the perfect place to enjoy a bite and a drink before or after a show.
