About Us

Taken over in June of 2014 by Brian & Amanda Barker, we are a family run country pub with a beautiful varied menu designed by Head Chef, Thomas Curtis, and his number two, Jules Kirby. A superb supporting team, which you'll find more about later , have helped put our small pub on the map!

Nestled nicely between Burford & Witney, and just 40 minutes from Oxford (on a good day), in the historic village of Minster Lovell in rural Oxfordshire. We are perfect for a one stop pit stop to refuel or a long leisurely evening at the dinner table. 

With a large selection of both bottled and draught beers, including some rather special British craft samples, as we strive to keep the much sought after "pub feel" while offering a touch of class and sophistication with our snug country style dining room. A small offering of wine is available also! 

We have already received acclaim in the local press and earned rave reviews from various online sites. Facebook & Tripadvisor have been key in getting to where we are in such a short space of time, so we owe an awful lot to the people that take time out of their day to write us a few words, they really do make a difference! In October 2015 we were awarded the title Best Traditional Pub at the Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards! As well as the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence earlier in 2015.  

Be sure to stop by; possibly to try our immensely popular Sunday Roasts or dabble with our stunning "Tuesday Two's" deal... Two People, Two Courses & a glass of wine or beer each for just £22!!

We can also cater for large functions such as Weddings, Baby Showers, Wakes, Christenings and Private Parties!! In which you can have either a full two course, three course or four course meal, or if it was simply a hot or cold buffet. Our chefs and management will work along side you to agree everything is how you would like it.
