Situated on the banks of the River Cherwell in Old Marston, The Victoria Arms is a stunning riverside pub and restaurant with mooring available for punts on the River Cherwell.

Full of local history, the building dates back to the 17th century as the ferryman’s cottage, and once hosted a certain Oliver Cromwell.

The Victoria offers traditional pub charm with beautiful interiors, a heated pergola terrace, and huge beer gardens overlooking the river.

In the kitchen, our focus is hearty seasonal dishes and elevated pub classics, with local produce and ingredients at the heart of the menu.

In the warmer months, it’s all about street food inspiration, served up from our garden kitchen kiosk to the busy terrace and garden.

Behind the bar, we’re proud of our beer selection, with a great range of ale, lager and cider courtesy of our award-winning Butcombe Brewery, along with our cocktail menu.

We’re child-friendly and dog-friendly, both indoors and outside, with plenty of space for small and large groups.

Looking for a venue for your event? Our private dining space is perfect for special occasions, meetings, and Christmas parties.

We’re ideally situated close to popular attractions in Oxfordshire, like Oxford University walking tours, the Bodleian Library, and Blenheim Place.

Look out for exciting events and live music throughout the summer!
