Oxfordshire has a lot of pubs - real country pubs with limited menus, and attractive gastropubs with little or no local atmosphere. The Oxford Arms combines the authenticity of a local, with the menu of a gastropub. Set in the delightful village of Kirtlington, a...More

Not very inspiring from the outside. Small car park. Very friendly and professional service. Perfect Sunday lunch with roasters to die for. It does not get much better than this. Would always go back if passing!!
