The Abingdon Arms

A warm welcome to the Abingdon Arms, Beckley

Directors Vicky and Alex founded 3 Catering Limited in 2019 with former director Suzy. In 2022, Danny joined Vicky and Alex and are now working tirelessly to produce some of the finest food, serve some local fresh beers and create a warm welcoming atmosphere. The Abingdon Arms located close to the Otmoor bird reserve. We are lucky enough to have an outstanding garden view over looking Otmoor. It is quite possibly the best pub view in Oxfordshire.

The Committed team

Alex has been a head chef for many fabulous years. He has gained two AA Rosettes and cooked for many incredible functions, the 2012 Olympics and Richard Branson to mention a couple!! Alex’s expertise in his fish dishes really blossomed when he worked in France, and it reflects in his passion for creating high quality menus in the traditional pub environment in the heart of the countryside. Alex wants to bring local, fresh produce to The Abingdon Arms - and not charge 'an arm and a leg' for a good meal!

Vicky, formally operations manager at The Bell in Hampton Poyle, works both the magic behind the scenes and runs front of house operations. She is predominately the go to person for any queries! Her refreshing attitude for social media keeps all the marketing up to date. She will keep you in the loop with new menus, Christmas parties and all other events while assisting with any queries or administrative requests! 

Danny worked as a bar manager, cocktail maker and restaurateur for over 10 years. Danny is not work shy and has endless amounts of passion for hospitality. Pop in to see Danny and have a chat about our local beers!

With a committed, hard working team, we offer good food, good drink, and good company. And we will be open to welcome you 7 days a week. Together, we will bring some new flavours and atmosphere to Beckley and its surrounding community and we hope that you will join us very soon!
