Pub overview

A beautiful and well-presented thatched roof 16th century pub in the village of Chalgrove.



The current food offering sources local ingredients from the village and surrounding areas. The pub in the past has enjoyed a good wet trade boosted by darts teams, aunt sally, pool, crib and village cricket teams. The gardens host regular annual events such as beer festivals, charity fun days and a large vintage cycle rally.

There are 3 main trading areas. The dining area has 45 covers at the rear of the pub, the snug bar with 16 covers and a large open fireplace and the public bar at the front of the property which currently caters for wet sales and village sports such as darts etc. There is easily space for 50 people standing in the public bar. All areas are well presented with an enormous working open fire and bags of character.

“ A true English village pub located in rural Oxfordshire on the edge of Chalgrove which is in between Henley on Thames and Oxford. The Lamb has tremendous appeal to locals and represents a real opportunity for diners from further afield. We are seeking either a first time or experienced operator to invest in partnership with the experience and skills to drive the food opportunity, whilst developing and executing an activity program putting the large trade gardens to good use. ”
