Welcome to the Shepherd’s Crook

Enjoy our fine cellar and kitchen in the idyllic Oxfordshire Countryside

The Shepherd's Crook is a traditional British Free House set in a beautiful Oxfordshire country village. Not being tied to any single pub chain means that we can offer a wide selection of the finest Beers, Ales, Wines and Spirits including locally brewed and independent products that you’re less likely to find elsewhere and, of course, we also stock the national brands you know and love.

We’re just as serious about the contents of our kitchen too, where ever possible we use fresh locally sourced meat and produce to give you the finest flavours so that you can enjoy our full and varied menu knowing that you are supporting local agriculture and reduced long distance food haulage.

Whether you choose to enjoy our wares inside the traditional village pub or on the wide terrace so as to view the local Red Kite, you’re assured a warm welcome and staff that will do all they can to make your visit perfect



It is with deep sadness that we must announce that Jonathan, our magnificent landlord, passed away suddenly on the evening of Saturday the 6th September.

He was in the company of a dear friend following a tremendous day of rugby (apart from the fact that Wasps failed to secure a victory, which was clearly the referee’s fault…) at Twickenham stadium.

The pub will continue to trade as Jonathan would have wanted fromWednesday the 10th of September. Initially opening from 6pm to 10:30pm offering a limited but hopefully adequate food service.

Please bear with us during this difficult time and normal service will resume as soon as possible.

We hope to see you all soon to toast the great man himself.

Details of the wake and funeral can be found on our facebook page.

Many thanks,

Sally, James and all the Staff.
