About The Siege

The Siege Of Orleans is Oxfordshire's first Micro-Alehouse. Born on the 8th of May 2015.

It' our aim to offer a better experience when out socialising.

Different drinks and new takes on serving them.

Interesting bar games and competitions.

Beers from all over the world and an ever changing spirit collection to rival the very best bars.

The aim is for customers to come in and be so spoilt for choice that they can be educated by the staff.

Colourful, exciting, different and new...

She knows what she's talking about esspecially when it comes to Beer and Rum (her faves). Catch her at the bar sipping Old J Spiced Rum with an Old Jamacan Ginger beer & fresh lime. Much like herself her favorite drink is bubbly, sweet and full of energy.

Chris Jones

Owner & Visionary

Chris decided to set up the Siege of Orleans after looking into MicroPubs and also some of his favourite bars around the country. Having lived (and drunk) in Carterton since he was 5 years old.

Usually found behind the bar at his other pub The Cotswold Arms in Burford, he will be seen in the Siege sampling the new products (tough job) including his favourite Gins!

Either that or he'll be abroad climbing a mountain somewhere!!
