About the Brasenose Arms

The Brasenose Arms is a 17th century Country Inn, situated in the heart of Cropredy, a rural village just 4 miles north of Banbury, Oxfordshire. Originally three cottages, it was converted into a Public House in the late 17th century.

Cropredy lies on the west bank of the River Cherwell. Over 350 years ago, Cropredy Bridge was the site of a major battle during the English Civil War in 1644.

Fairport Nine

Today, it hosts Britain’s (if not Europe’s) ‘friendliest’ music festival – Fairport’s Cropredy Convention – staged every year in August by members of the great British folk band – Fairport Convention. Here they are, sitting outside the pub, for the photo on the back of their 1973 album ‘Nine’.

 

 

Everyone is welcome at the Brasenose Arms. It’s a friendly 350 year old ‘local’ with a restaurant, contemporary en-suite accommodation to sleep 10, a 1/2 acre Beer Garden, regular live music, free wifi and a public laundry.

Opening Hours:

Monday to Thursday: 12pm – 11pm
