About Us

There are few pubs as full of history as The King’s Arms in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. Dating back to the 1500s, the building pre-dates nearby Blenheim Palace. We’ve kept up some of the pub’s traditions – offering cosy spaces, classic British dishes and a warm welcome – but have added innovative food, boutique rooms and contemporary cask ales into the mix.

With 15 gorgeous rooms to choose from, The King’s Arms is a great base from which to explore both Woodstock market town, and the nearby city of Oxford. The hotel enjoys a prime location ten minutes’ stroll from Blenheim Palace and its beautiful grounds.

The Parish Church of St Martin Bladon is a five-minute drive away, while you can reach nearby Oxford in just 20 minutes. Alternatively, take the train into the city to enjoy its famous architecture and to explore Oxford’s museums.

Eating and drinking

Everything on the menu at The King’s Arms is prepared using fantastic seasonal ingredients. Our head chef has crafted an array of delicious options to suit every taste, with special chef’s signature dishes for those keen to try something a bit different. We source our ingredients locally wherever possible, to bring you a tasty mix of British classics and modern cooking.

On Sundays, you can choose from our selection of roasts, and we also offer a great-value set lunch and a children’s menu for family meals. But whatever you order from the kitchen, you can be sure to find the perfect match on our extensive drinks list at the bar.

Choose from renowned Fuller’s ales, fine wines from our cellar, or a bottle of Champagne to celebrate a special occasion. We’ve also got plenty of premium spirits, refreshing cider and soft drinks to choose from.
