A rather abrupt welcome considering they weren't that busy. However the staff we came across later were very pleasant. An interesting menu with a South African flavour.

Thank Geoff W

Visited during the festival. The Brasenose Arms is on the must visit list due to the live music and fine alea on sale.
Friendly staff (and the beautiful weather) made it the place to be.

room was comfortable but tired. rooms could do with a refresh / decoration and the en-suite needs a good deep clean and maintenance as tiles are falling off and there is quite a bit of black mould on the silicone in the shower. Window needs a security catch as room is on ground floor. no chair in the room so you have to sit / relax on the bed

Visited with friends for a Sunday roast. Roast was OK just very small portions. We wondered if the change of weather to rain had caught them out and when everyone (well not that many) ordered roast they had to share out the portions. Pub not as busy as we expected on a Sunday. Maybe they were resting before the Fairport Convention weekend. Met someone a day later on the canal who said they had two chefs and the food depended on who was on that day. Also the two bar/waiting staff seemed at odds, bar or restaurant. Shame really, always liked this place, sad to give it an average this time.

What do you do when England reach a World Cup semi final and you're enjoying a week's canal holiday with very poor reception on the TV?
Book a table at The Brasenose Arms in Cropredy of course!!
We were able to do just this while enjoying a canal holiday booked through Napton Narrowboats. We passed Cropredy just after the win over Sweden and knew we'd be returning on the day of the game against Croatia.
Staff at the Brasenose could not have helped more - they were happy to accept our booking and even gave us a table as close to the TV as it was possible to be.
On the evening of the game we enjoyed a very warm welcome, fine beers, a super meal and an excellent view of the match - such a shame about the result!!
Thanks to all - we had an evening to remember.
