About the Pub

Much altered village pub, now part of the Hungry Horse chain, although there is a bar area, with Sky sports dominant. The pub was once called the Fish, owned by a Timothy West, and there is a plaque on what would have once been an outside wall dated 1779 that bears his initials. Before 1844 Oxford students had to catch a train to London at Steventon. They were only allowed to keep a one-horse gig in the city and would stop at this pub to borrow a second horse to make it a tandem, returning it on their way back. The name of the pub was changed in 1915. Refurbished May 2018 and now with more seating in the bar and outside - the children's play area has gone.
