Hook Norton Brewery Visitors Centre


If you're a real ale drinker we'd recommend a visit to the local Hook Norton Brewery, just 15 minutes from Balscote, to discover how the fine ales are brewed. Established in 1849 produces fine award winning ales and stouts. It is powered by a 25 horsepower steam engine installed over 100years ago. Local deliveries are made by Shire Horses.

Tours start from the Visitors Centre and last approximately 2 hours. They consist of a trip around the Brewery, museum and village museum, followed by beer sampling. On leaving you will receive a badged glass as a memento of your visit. A range of beers and other merchandise is available in the shop.

Please see the Hook Norton Brewery website for further details.

Upton House & Gardens

The fine 17th century National Trust property, Upton House & Gardens was restored in the 1920's is just minutes away from Balscote. Why not combine a visit with lunch or a drink at The Butchers Arms. Other nearby places of interest include Broughton Castle and for those of you less familar with the local area the town of Banbury also has some historic attractions and very good shopping centre.

On Yer Bike !

On a fine day why not get out "on yer bike" along the country roads and plot a route aournd the villages stopping off for refreshments along the way. Take a look at a suggested circular route from Banbury that we have plotted on the MapMyWalk website or determine your route from where you live. Why not invite your friends along and give us a call to pre-order your meals.

Take a countryside walk

There are many walking routes in the area and we welcome walkers and ramblers, dogs and muddy boots ! So get out in the countryside for a walk and visit The Butchers Arms along the way. For larger groups we can arrange warming meals and log fire on those cold days or summer salads and refreshing cold drinks on those hot days. Please take a look at the Ordance Survey map for a suggested route from Banbury or determine your route from where you live. Give us a call when planning your day out and we can be sure to meet your requirements. If you get here and don't feel like walking home take a look at the bus timetable for the journey home !
