Our garden bar is now open at weekends and is intended to be one of the safest places to have an open-air drink in Oxfordshire. Our outdoor garden area seats a maximum of 56 people and is located at the top of South Park in the grounds of our Distillery. 

All tables are socially distanced (2m or more) and can seat from 4 to 10 people. Bookings are not necessary and we are not taking table bookings but we will always find you a place to sit. As per government guidelines all guests must sign in and all orders will be placed via a table service app, Creventa.

We will take every measure to keep our staff and customers safe, including:

  • We have two outdoor toilets that will be cleaned every two hours
  • Our staff wear face coverings when serving
  • Hand sanitiser is always available

We offer a menu of our wonderful spirits, local craft beer and soft drinks. 

Our shop is also reopen selling all of our spirits in one place.

As an outdoor venue we will not open in terrible weather – please call or email if you are unsure.

Situated in Oxford’s South park, the distillery is a pleasant 30 minute walk from Oxford city centre, great views of the city do come with a price so prepare for some uphill walking! If you are arriving by train to Oxford a taxi will take you about 10 minutes depending on traffic conditions.


Take any of the 4 buses (4, 4A, 4B, 4C) towards Wood Farm and get off at the Warneford Hospital stop. From there, The Oxford Artisan Distillery is just a short 300 metres walk away.

Alternatively, any bus to Oxford Brooke’s University will serve you well. We are a five-minute walk away from the campus.


We have a small amount of parking space available. If you are coming from out of town we recommend using the Thornhill Park & Ride, get off the Oxford Brooke’s University stop.
