Beckley and Stowood, Oxfordshire


Our historic pub is at the heart of our village, with views across Otmoor which have inspired the likes of Lewis Carol and Evelyn Waugh.

In the summer, there is a large garden terrace with great views over Otmoor and seating for diners. The fabulous bar sucks you in. Excellent cask beers with gallons of atmosphere, seasonal food are in abundance.

The Abingdon Arms regularly hosts event so keep an eye out for the next one.

The Abingdon Arms is owned by the Community and is the pub's tenants - Aimeee Bronock, Tom Bronock and Joe Walton. Please visit for more details. If you want to read how the local community successfully purchased the pub, took it into community ownership and thus prserved it as an asset for future generations, click on the link to the Beckley & Area Community Benefit Society.
