The Saye & Sele Arms

This lovely popular pub is located on the B4035 in the village of Broughton, North Oxfordshire, three miles West into the countryside from Banbury Cross, and is very handy for visitors to Broughton Castle, the ancestral home to Lord and Lady Saye & Sele, Blenheim Palace, the city of Oxford, Towcester, Stratford upon Avon and Warwick racecourses and of course the delightful Cotswolds.

Food is very much the driving force here, available also to lovers of real ale is the fine selection of Cask Marque approved real ales; Adnams from Southwold is the resident ale, with three ever-changing guest ales chosen with local brewers, recommended by CAMRA,  appearing regularly. The well appointed cosy restaurant and bar, with exposed stone walls and an open fire, have beams decked with over 200 sparkling colourful water jugs and well polished horse brasses.

The extensive menu, based on established and reliable local suppliers, has something for everyone, especially those with special dietary needs. Danny’s famous `Proper Pies’ are always on the menu, and other popular choices range from prime steaks from Oxfordshire herds to the daily fresh fish dish and seasonal specials to Danny’s home-made desserts – souffléd bread & butter pudding, various roulades, chocolate cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding are definitely not to be missed.

The wine menu has been created from various parts of the world to reflect as many interesting avenues of taste to the discerning customer.

In the summer the mature garden creates an ideal spot for outside dining on the lawn or patio. Food is served every session except Sunday evening. Table reservations are certainly advisable
