What a lovely pub, very welcoming staff, nice choice of beers and a simply awesome steak sandwich. Lunch specials and bar snacks are good value too.

You cannot help loving this pub/restaurant. We went here after a funeral and returned to have Sunday lunch a couple of weeks later. The food is outstanding, properly cooked to order, tastes wonderful and is prettily presented. The staff are cheerful and friendly and obviously like being there. The decor is fresh and rustic with lovely seasonal flowers and plants around the restaurant. The prices for food and drink are very reasonable and the background music is charming.

We have just had our first experience of the Crewe Arms having tried a lot of local places in the Brackley area. We was a group of four people and walked past the main bar into the lounge area. We were met with a young blonde haired girl who just said "No service here go back to the main bar". She was corrected as we had booked a table. We were shown to our table and was served by another girl. We ordered the duck (looked like a childs portion), two rump steaks and fish. The food came out hot. Drinks were average prices except the house wine. When we got the bill we had been charged £16 for a bottle of house wine (a total rip off), the rump steaks were £16.50 (again way overpriced for a pub). The level of service wasn't that good but I think that was because the two girls were stretched and were constantly on the go, in fact too much. Will I be going back? In a word No. When I go to a pub for a meal I expect pub prices not Michelin restaurant prices. There are a lot more venues offering better value for money in the area.

The new team at the Crewe are doing really well.
Service is friendly and fun and the food is fantastic.
Scott is excellent at the deliberately limited menu, but try the devilled kidneys, they're great.
The range of beers is good too.
My personal favourite is the 'English tapas' - try the pint of sausages, scotch egg and sausage rolls after a long dog walk nearby and you'll be amazed. The beer bread is out of this world and the home made breads and pickles generally are worth the trip on their own.
