The Crown  is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists and horseriders with lots of routes around the area. 

We are a dog friendly venue with treats, towels and water bowls available.

Boasting a large and recently renovated beer garden for the spring and summer months, with wood burning stoves inside the bar and restaurant for colder evenings.

The epitome of an English country pub.

One of my favourite pubs in South Oxfordshire hands down! The staff are super friendly, and are always around to help you. Furthermore, the pub has a great ambience! A+++

Stumbled across this place and decided to call in for dinner on a Monday evening. Although they were busy with quiz night a table was found for us. Good menu choice of traditional pub food. We ordered sausage & mash and beef wellington.The food was piping hot, well presented and very tasty. I was wary of ordering the beef wellington as I have been disappointed in the past but it was beautiful. A good well priced menu which is affordable for a mid week dinner, something pubs near where I live don't offer. I will definitely be back to sample the Sunday lunch.

Exceptional! We booked a very big family reunion (about 25 of us) and we couldn’t have chosen better.
We had a large, lovely room to ourselves, with a door out into a separate garden area.
The food was superb. I never expect much when you descend en masse, especially to a country pub, but they excelled themselves. Really top quality and plenty of it.
Finally, the service was top notch. Friendly, attentive and nothing too much trouble.
Honestly, this place is a bit of a gem!
