About Siobhan and Tom

Siobhan and Tom met in 2013 whilst Siobhan worked in the front of house team at The Royal Oak in Paley street Berkshire and Tom was taking part in a competition. Very soon after they started dating they knew that this industry was for them and they wanted a place of their own. Tom was promoted to Head Chef at Stoke Park - 5-star hotel in Buckinghamshire and Siobhan went on to be Assistant Restaurant Manager at Cliveden House in Berkshire.

In 2017 they welcomed their first son Leo and they married in 2018. In February 2019 they first set eyes on The Carpenters Arms and immediately fell in love, they knew that this is where they could make their dreams come true and they could create their own family home and business here in Fulbrook.


We are a village pub situated a short walk from the Cotswold town of Burford - The Gateway to the Cotswolds. We are family and dog-friendly with a large beautiful garden with an outside BBQ hut that is able to rent out and also the traditional Oxfordshire game of Aunt Sally.

Our rustic charm makes us perfect for a quiet afternoon out, a large party in the garden or even a quick stop off for some light refreshment with your four-legged friends.
