A lot will have changed since your last visit!
Under New Ownership
It's fair to say The Brasenose pub was loved but not looked after until we took over in 2020. This 17th-century pub is steeped in history, we even have two resident ghosts. Come and visit us to enjoy a decent pint, a glass of Prosecco and either great quality bar food or something a bit more special from the 1777 restaurant menu.
We have a large garden perfect for kids to run around in, and dogs are welcome in the bar and the garden.
Just 4 miles from Banbury (and Banbury train station) you can enjoy walks along the canal, visit the historic site of the Battle of Cropredy Bridge and enjoy the Oxfordshire countryside.
The Brasenose is the perfect place for lunch, dinner or a weekend away in the country.

Events - What's coming up at The Brasenose
The Fairport Convention Connection
Until the interruption of COVID in 2020 and 2019, Fairport's Cropredy Convention (formerly Cropredy Festival) was the longest continual running festival in the UK; starting in 1976. It is an annual festival of folk and rock music, headed by the British folk-rock band Fairport Convention, and is held on the edge of Cropredy. The Brasenose holds a 'Fringe Festival' of live music in support of the main event, which originally began in the pub's garden. The Brasenose is also featured on the Fairport Convention's famous 'Nine' album cover.
By kind permission of the photographer, Brian Cooke, we have this exclusive original image, on the website and printed in the pub - alongside an image of the band taken in 2021 at The Brasenose Fringe Festival.
