user reviews of the Berkshire House, Oxford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Formerly The Berkshire House, situated as it was just over the border in Berkshire prior to the 1974 county boundary changes, this pub-cum-B&B has a dusting of the contemporaries with its bright and clean air as well as some homely touches, with the ‘front room’ clutch of sofas in the bay window opposite the bar, although the pool room had seen better days. A handful of souls attendant on a Thursday night and GK IPA and IPA Special represented the limited ale range available, although the two pints of the former weighed in at a mere £5. A confusing nod to the past was to be had in the barmaid’s wearing of a ‘Berkshire House’ polo shirt. Not much to write home about, but with the spate of nearby pub closures over the last few years (Fox & Hounds, General Elliot, Grandpont Arms, Marlborough House, Seven Stars) it’s good to see this one hanging on, even if parking is virtually non-existent.

Re-opening today, 14th August 2009. The pub has been re-named The Crooked Pot.

Currently closed following a fire a few months ago.
Greene King claim they intend to refurbish and re-open in due course and some scaffolding has appeared outside so fingers crossed.

Friendly staff. Good quiz on Tuesdays.
Perfectly nice place.

A dog of a pub. Was very nice 3-4 years ago with a good young couple running it, but now one to avoid. Head further into town to the Folly Bridge - an altogether more pleasant pint.
