NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever as they recover following the pandemic.

Indoor service has now resumed, but social distancing measures and table service are still compulsory, and you may still need to book in advance.

Please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


South Oxfordshire CAMRA Branch has created a spreadsheet on its website with the latest operating status of all pubs in the Branch area. This includes, for example, opening hours and takeaway and delivery services, amongst other important information. This is of course dependent on the current tier or lockdown restrictions the pubs find themselves in. The Branch continually updates this information. Access to the Directory is provided by the URL link below.
