About the Pub

The Flowing Spring is a former Fuller's pub that was purchased by the current tenants in June 2017. Popular country local which is a destination for walkers and cyclists and has a large enclosed riverside garden, with children's play facilities, which has streams on two sides, one of which is fed from the local spring. The 18th century building is on a slant with almost a foot difference from one end of the bar to the other and unusually, the pub itself is on the first floor with a covered balcony overlooking the garden. The pub has an award-winning reputation for specialising in home-made vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free food and also hosts many music, classic car and bike meets and charity events throughout the year. The pub also holds Real Ale festivals and is a former South Oxfordshire CAMRA Branch Winter Pub of the Season. Plenty of car parking space, a toilet on car park level for disabled customers (with baby changing facilities) and Wi-Fi. The access to the pub is via a flight of metal steps. Standalone motorhomes or campervans are welcome when pre-booked via the Brit Stops Guide. South Oxfordshire CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year 2018.
