Banbury's first micropub opened in February 2017. There is always a couple of ever-changing gravity dispensed beers available with some key-keg beers to provide a range of styles. Cider is available direct from the polypin.
Witney's first micropub is a venture into running a pub by a father and son team who started Oxbrew, an eight-barrel plant, in late 2017 which has now merged with Little Ox Brewery. The pub serves their own beers and others from nearby small breweries through two handpulls from casks and six taps from kegs all kept in the air-conditioned cold room visible behind the bar. Re-branded in September 2020.
Named after part of the town's great castle, The Keep is Wallingford's first and only micropub. Originally opened in May 2016 it is located in a converted art gallery and has rustic charm with an exposed beamed ceiling. They serve two regular and three changing cask ales along with wines, spirits and ciders. The one-room bar seats approximately 20 around 5-6 tables.
