The Brasenose Cropredy

Welcome to The Brasenose Arms. New owners from November 2020

Ours is a 17th-century pub, steeped in history where you can enjoy a decent pint, a glass of Prosecco and either great quality bar food or something a bit more special from the 1777 restaurant menu.

Just 4 miles from Banbury (and Banbury train station) you can enjoy walks along the canal, visit the historic site of the Battle of Cropredy Bridge and enjoy the Oxfordshire countryside.
The Brasenose is the perfect place for lunch, dinner or a weekend away in the country.
