Sink a pint at the Pub Garden sponsored by Brakspear
No village is complete without a buzzing country pub.
THE CRAVEN ARMS
Enjoy a pint of real ale, cider or a refreshing juice at The Craven Arms and watch new music from the ‘BBC Introducing’ stage.
For younger visitors there’s Tractor Ted to climb on and the Sheep Show will be running at regular intervals throughout the day – a display of woolly talent that will have the whole family in giggles.
Sit back and relax with a drink in The Craven Arms and enjoy all the delights of BBC Countryfile Live, with the beautiful backdrop of Blenheim Palace.
Since 1776 Brakspear has been brewing beer in Oxfordshire. Brakspear remain one of the very few breweries to make beer using the ‘double drop’ brewing system. Cooled beer coming from their brewhouse starts fermentation in the top-fermenting vessel. After 16 hours the beer is then allowed to fall naturally or ‘dropped’ into the vessel below. Monitored over the next 48 hours by their master brewers, it’s this system which gives Brakspear its unique character.
Got a little one that loves tractors? Join Tractor Ted for fun in the Digger Den! They'll be plenty of tractors to explore and even an activity trail, too.
