Oakman Inns

About the Pub

Over 400 years old and once a coaching inn, there is a wonderful cobbled courtyard drinking area, complete with a cannon. The whole complex was renovated and refurbished at a cost of over £1.8m in autumn 2013 after being acquired by Oakman Inns. There are separate buildings for the bar & function room and the restaurant. The bar has been extended to include the barn which can be closed off for private functions. The bar features comfortable leather seating offering a range of wines and cocktails as well as the real ales. There are a total of seven hand pumps comprising 3 at the main bar, 2 in the function room and 2 in the restaurant serving well kept ales from Wychwood, Brakspear, Loose Cannon, Jennings, Ringwood, Loddon and others. Opens early for breakfast and food served all day including bar snacks.
