About the Pub

The Rifle Volunteer is located in the heart of Oxhey Village and is one of the oldest pubs in the locality, having been built as a beerhouse by Clutterbuck's Brewery of Stanmore when the area was developed in the late 1850s. The pub eventually came to be owned by Courage, whose livery can still be seen outside, and it continues to sell Courage Best to this day. The interior looks like it has been altered over the years and is now a single, light open-plan room. Sports are popular at the pub, which has its own Sunday football team and golf society, as well as men's and ladies' darts teams. Pool and poker are also popular, the latter being played on Thursday nights, and the pub also holds regular charity quiz nights. Smokers can use the patio seating outside, which has umbrellas for wet weather. Technically there's no disabled access because there are steps up to the main entrance, but wheelchairs can be taken through a side door on Lower Paddock Road that isn't normally used. Dogs are welcome as long as they're kept under control. There is an alternates curry or pie night every Tuesday.
