Welcome to The Bell Inn at Lower Heyford. A warm and friendly village pub near the Oxford Canal, where you can enjoy fabulous meals and quench your thirst.

Under New Ownership and Management! We were delighted to re-open post-lockdown, and hope that you soon visit to see all the changes. We have been very busy renovating and updating this beautiful traditional inn giving it sympathetic modern twist that we hope you’ll love. Our enlarged and spacious beer garden includes a small marquee for outdoor dining when the weather is kind. Indoors the whole pub feels cosy and warm with real fires, newly installed radiators and appropriate lighting and quiet background music to set a casual, relaxed, pub atmosphere. This 19th century Free-house still enjoys serving local ales and great ciders in the beautiful village of Lower Heyford on the Oxford Canal.
