The Victoria Arms, Old Marston

 Great food and drink on the banks of The Cherwell River. 

The Victoria Arms sits on the banks of The Cherwell River, just a short way from the dreaming spires of Oxford city centre. With large sweeping gardens down to the river we are a perfect spot in the summer, whether you walk, drive or come by river on a punt.

Winter time brings refreshing walks along the river, and then back to our log fires, warm drinks and home cooked food. Situated in one of the oldest villages around Oxford this pub was once named The Ferry Inn, after the foot passenger punt ferry that ran until the 1960's, as it was the only way from this side of the river over into North Oxford.

We pride ourselves on a perfect pint and a perfect view, summer or winter.

We believe the British pub has a fundamental role in its community to serve as a place for socialising, relaxing and enjoying quality products. A mix of customers are always welcome at the "Vicky arms", from families, tourists and locals to puntsman, ramblers and man's best friend.

Our facilities include:

Complimentary WiFi, disabled access, high chairs and a large car park.

Keep an eye on our facebook page for event updates, plus lots of exciting events have been planned for this year!
