The kitchen delivers an exciting take on English classics and everything is produced from scratch on site by their team of talented chefs. The emphasis is on celebrating local produce sourced in and around Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.”

“Our favourite local pub!! Can be quite busy on a Friday night with local drinkers at the bar but the food is yummy! There is separate dining area away from the bar towards the rear of the pub and also space our the back in the lovely courtyard! The staff are friendly and the Woodstock Arms is a really cool place to visit for a drink or some delicious whole hearted British cuisine! ”
