Popped in for a quick lunch and had the sandwich deal, £5.99 including a drink. Bargain and quick, with me in 15 minutes. Happy days. Attracts a lot of clientele from business and locals.

I am sorry but am unable to say as I don't need to look for that option. They do have a full list of allergens etc but you do need to be in the pub to see these.

The Bowyer Arms is an attractive pub found in the village of Radley in the historic county of Oxfordshire. We serve delicious food from our Flame Grill menu from 12pm-9pm daily and a great range of hot drinks, real ales and wines. We also offer a specialist gin menu. We have a large, attractive, beer garden with a play area which overlooks Radley train station (perfect for spotting the Flying Scotsman on its travels!). We also have two additional outdoor seating areas with heating. Whether you're visiting to relax in our large beer garden, dine with the family, play pool or darts, or watch some sport action in our sports area, Andrew and his team look forward to welcoming you. We have recently undergone an extensive refurbishment too - come and check out our new look!
