I tend to visit here once a year at the Cropredy Fairport Conventions Annual Reunion Festival. So whilst my view of this is a little distorted owing to the timing of my visit, I have been here every year for the last 26 years and as it has been a GBG pub frequently during that time I should rate it. My most recent visit was Thurs 9th & Sat 11th August 2012. This pub really is a wonderful looking place, thatched roof, local stone, very pretty. It is situated on a quiet back lane leading to the Oxford canal and opposite the Cropredy church. The bar is to the left as you enter and the place is full of low beams and doorways. It would be interesting to visit this place away from the festival time as when I have visited there is always live music ’Fairport Fringe’ and additional bars. However the beer usually Hooky, Old Hooky and I also had Double Stout on Saturday is very well kept. worth a visit if in the area.
