Tucked away in a small pedestrian-only street off Alvescot Road, is this small but popular micro-alehouse. Stocking four real ales on handpumps plus bottled beers from all over the world. Also real cider and spirits, and can offer cocktails. A limited range of food plus bar games and very occasionally live music. It opened on the 8th May 2015 and brought the number of local pubs to three, which figure currently remains. Astonishingly few for a town of around 20,000 people and which is still growing.

A traditional hanging sign has recently appeared:- SP2806 : The Siege of Orleans - sign, 5 The Giles Centre, Alvescot Road, Carterton, Oxon.

The pub is named after the siege of the French city of Orleans in 1428-29, which was the climax of the Hundred Years War between France & England. Joan of Arc was involved in its rescue. The connection with Carterton isn't clear as the siege took place over 500 years before Carterton was created.
