The Oxenham Arms was situated on Shelly Road. This was originally a 16th century manor house. It closed as a pub in 2008.

It shut in November 2008 when the then owner went bankrupt.  It re-opened in April 2009 with the previous owner now running it in his new capacity of manager.

This pub closed again in July 2011 following the death of landlord, whose body was found next to a shotgun.

Stayed here several times in the 1990s. Reputedly haunted, though I never noticed anything out of the ordinary. Has a menhir incorporated in an internal wall of the smaller, back, bar. A second standing stone stood in the dining room, but this was thought to have been an import rather than an original.
