Modern upmarket bar and eatery in and old converted building in the centre of Chipping Norton. Probably one of teh nicest drinking establishments in the area, with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Well worth popping in whilst the wife's in the shops!!

A busy pub which speaks for itself. Being busy staff didn’t get to clear tables of glasses, it is a nice pub but meals and drinks a bit pricey.

We were recommended here by our B&B host. The meal was just what we needed after a long days walking. The food was good without being over fussy and was reasonably priced.

This was a lucky random find on a meander through town. Good selection of food and beer I had the feta, tomato and pesto baguette. This came with a cup of piping hot mushroom soup. Excellent value at £9.00. We’re not often around these parts...More

The best place to have a drink in Chippy. Sometimes they have Tribute on tap. The bar staff are friendly and care about what they do. Respect

It is always busy, with a buzzing atmosphere in the evening. The star of the show are the cocktails, they are amazing, food is also really good. Prices are ok, I think some of the beer is too expensive - London prices but you need...More

They don't have a website. I have been here lots of times. The cocktails are good quality price at about £6. Is say they do about 30 cocktails but I'm sure they would make the one you wanted.
