Lower Heyford is a very historic, pretty village situated on the Oxford Canal and by the River Cherwell. There are many local activities that may lead you past our door – we’d be delighted to welcome you.

Walkers Many Cherwell Valley Walks feature The Bell Inn. We welcome walkers, even with muddy boots!

Dog Friendly We are very happy to welcome dogs both indoors and outside provided that they are on leads and well behaved. Please ask if you’d like a bowl of water for your dog – we’ll be delighted to oblige!

Cyclists There are so many cycle routes around Oxfordshire and we’d be delighted if your route includes a stop for a drink or perhaps lunch. Just ask and we’ll happily re-fill your water bottles! Groups welcome, subject of course to current Covid guidelines.

Boaters We are always delighted to welcome boaters to The Bell Inn. It is the perfect place to relax after a day on the water. Find a spot to moor and walk over. We have close links with the narrowboat holiday hire companies and are delighted to welcome the holiday makers. If you fancy hiring a boat for a holiday or a day have a look at the Oxfordshire Narrowboats website.

Plenty of space for everyone both inside and out. Have a look at our gallery for photographs of our new twist on this traditional inn.
