|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. |

|Normally, coming from "up north", all we have seen is Wadworth's 6X so it was a great pleasure to find this pub, not far from our B&B. The various beers we sampled were good, the staff welcoming and locals friendly, inviting us to join in a game of "Aunt Sally".|

|Having always eschewed this pub in favour of the Head and various other more central delights, I decided to pop in last Saturday. It is perhaps more of a working-class drinking-hole than one might expect from the spruce exterior and well-stocked garden that surrounds the pub. Also, it seems to emphasise Sky Sports as a main attraction, which - sorry to say it - all-too-often does not bode well for the overall quality of a local pub. However, happily, I found it to be clean, friendly and the service at the bar very efficient. The big screen was on, but didn't dominate unduly. To say this place is "down at heel" is a little unfair; I would substitute this for "down-to-earth", and in truth it is quite refreshing to find a local pub in Oxford that has no pretensions and isn't aimed squarely at the American tourist/Morse market. |
Most importantly for an ale lover such as I was the sheer quality of the beer! I was amazed to find the Wadworth Horizon not only in good nick, but truly the finest I've ever sampled. One mouthful and the finish lasted so long that it was unnecessary to take another for a good few minutes! I didn't have time to try anything else, but if all ales are kept to this standard most of the time, this place really deserves more praise that it's been getting for this alone. And it must be said - it is far cheaper than the Fullers fare up the road.
I say well done folks; I shall be back.
