The Victoria Arms


Outside tables are available for up to 6 guests on our pergola terrace – if we’re fully booked we are happy to accept walk-ins for our picnic benches. Service is via the Butcombe App.

We’ll always do our best to offer covered seating, but are unable to guarantee it.

See you soon!

Team Victoria


Situated on the banks of the River Cherwell in Old Marston, the Victoria is a stunning riverside pub and restaurant. Full of local history, the building dates back to the 17th century and once hosted a certain Oliver Cromwell. Newly refurbished, the Victoria now 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, with wood-fired pizza, smash burgers, and soft-serve ice cream served to our 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.

Look out for exciting events, live music and pop-ups throughout the summer!
