Really enjoyed our evening out here as a couple. Went for a crafty pint after work ended up sitting down for a meal. Good home cooked food.

Beautiful little pub with lots of nooks and crannies to find a comfy spot by the fire and enjoy a drop of Golden Pride (8.5% - to be savoured rather than swigged!) Friendly staff and nice atmos.

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.
