The Brasenose Arms is a 17th century Country Inn, situated in the heart of Cropredy, a rural village just 4 miles north of Banbury, Oxfordshire. Originally three cottages, it was converted into a Public House in the late 17th century. Cropredy lies on the west bank of the River Cherwell. Over 350 years ago, Cropredy Bridge was the site of a major battle during the English Civil War in 1644. Today, it hosts Britains (if not Europes) friendliest music festival – the Cropredy Music Festival – staged every year in August by members of the great British folk band – Fairport Convention. Everyone is welcome at the Brasenose Arms. Its a friendly 350 year old local with a restaurant, contemporary en-suite accommodation to sleep 10, a 1/2 acre Beer Garden, regular live music, free wifi and a public laundry.
