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 with local real ales and ciders complemented by a cutting edge wine list.

We are closed Christmas Day, and thereafter for as long as HM Government designates Oxfordshire in Tier 4 or lockdown. Please follow our Facebook page for any further updates. Meanwhile we have retained the rest of our website to give you a taste of better times and something to look forward to….

Winter Warmers! We have continued renovating and updating this beautiful traditional inn giving it sympathetic modern twist that we hope you’ll love. The Blue Room now has a real coal fire keeping you toasty, the Bar has its wonderful wood burning stove, and the whole pub feels cosy and warm with the vintage-style cast-iron radiators. There’s a relaxed friendly atmosphere complemented by appropriate lighting and quiet background music. This 19th century Free-house still enjoys serving local ales and great ciders in the beautiful village of Lower Heyford on the Oxford Canal.

Booking is essential, once we are allowed to reopen! Please use the OpenTable booking website, call us on 01869 347176 or email to book a table.
