About us


We are a small family team with a drive to provide a local pub for villagers and a destination for people of the wider local area. We have taken the time to refurbish this wonderful building creating the perfect setting to enjoy either a simple pint of our delicious selection of beers with a scrummy bar snack or a full 3 course meal to suit all occasions.

Our food is very important indeed and we are very lucky and proud to have added Chef Valentine Molokwu to our team. Having worked both at home here in the UK and abroad he has a breadth of knowledge learning from a number of high-end establishments. One of the highlights being Head Chef at the Brompton Club, a private members club in South Kensington. Having lived in Norway for a number of years he thoroughly enjoyed learning about the cuisine and broadening his horizons. Now he’s excited to bring his tasty eats to rural Oxfordshire utilising seasonal and local produce.
