Now renamed The White House, I nipped in here in time to watch Fulham snatch a last-minute draw at Man United on some Scandinavian channel. A Wadworth house with 6X, Henry's IPA and Bishops Tipple; the latter, at £3.35, was excellent. The bar faces you as you enter, with an eating area to the right of the bar and TV and pool table to the right. Smattering of locals on a Sunday evening. Aunt Sally area outside to the right of the pub looked a bit a knackered, but it is out of season after all. A chalked sign at the bar declared that they were running down their stock due to an immiment change in their 'upper management'. Sounds like watch this space...

This place has been opened and closed a couple of times during 2013 and has had several landlords in quick succession - although it was completely redecorated it seems to have struggled with poor food quality and staff apathy. On my last visit since the latest new landlord the food took around 45 minutes to be served (although the pub was not busy). I had the fish and chips which were dry and gave me stomach pains. One of my friends had a burger which although had taken 45 minutes to arrive was still raw inside! The staff didn't seem bothered by this though. Soft drinks had a funny taste to them - I only realised when I went to the bar that the staff were using a mixing bowl as an ice bucket! So this seems to be where the odd taste came from! Still seems fairly busy though, but I would probably not return here againnow - it was better when it was run down and a proper 'local' rather than trying to keep up with the 'Oxford set'...

My wife and i visited this pub on Sat [18 Feb] for a drink before going back to our Guest house. Nice pub ,good selection of drinks and friendly staff and locals.They certainly made us welcome considering we were total strangers to the area.Hope to go back there some time.

Down to earth pub offering well kept beer and good quality and well priced home cooked food. It does appear a little run down in places but this is countered by the good beer and food. Useful and cheap to hire function room upstairs which hosts a variety of local clubs etc. Seems to have a varied clientele but is not so overly locals / students that you would feel out of place. A couple of screens in the bar area but volume was not so high that you could not have a conversation. Not a bad place and good beer and food give it a higher score in my book.

A bit of a locals pub by the feel of it. Very friendly and cheap beer but a bit scuffy.
