Murcott is a village between the River Ray and Otmoor in the civil parish of Fencott and Murcott, about 4 miles south of Bicester in Oxfordshire, England.
In 1542 the Crown granted almost all of the land at Murcott to the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey. They retained it until the end of the 19th century, when it passed to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners.
Murcott Mission Room was built in 1895 to a plain Early English design by local Gothic Revival architect A. Mardon Mowbray. The Mission Room is a Church of England chapel, part of the Benefice of the Ray Valley.
The Nut Tree Inn public house is a mid-15th century thatched building. It is a gastropub and in 2009 was awarded a Michelin Star. Murcott used to have a second pub, the Marlake House, but this had closed by 1939.
We do not ‘recommend’ Taxi companies. However what we do recommend is that you book one BEFORE you visit us. Although we are just 4 miles south of Bicester, and 12.5 miles from Oxford, a late night taxi is not always guaranteed.
Taxi Tip: Book it for the approximate time of pick up, then, if you would like to stay with us a little longer for another dessert, coffee, night cap or even a cigar in our garden, then call them and adjust.
Our pick up address is: The Nut Tree Inn, Main Street, Murcott, Oxon.
