I agree with most comments.

It's a fair-sized, single-room pub, well-maintained, and fitted with reclaimed period woodwork and so on. There's a split level arrangement, comfy leather sofas around a blazing open fire, and it's pleasantly light and airy.

There appeared to be doors opening onto a garden area, but we didn't explore that.

The clientele were chatty but not rowdy, and the quite busy atmosphere was generally genial, when we called early on a cold, wet Friday evening. The fire ensured that we stayed, for some of the Young's ordinary bitter which was in fine form.

I think that the historic name change away from The Oranges and Lemons was perhaps wise, with its becoming rather tired and trite-sounding there in the St. Clement's area.

Bit of a 'something of nothing' pub but the Youngs Bitter was first class. As 'Timmo' stated below there is a huge photo of the place back in the late '80s on the wall. All the regulars at the time, when the pub was called the Oranges and Lemons', are in the photo. The place is worth a visit just to look at the photo!!!

The easiest option if you are in the Cowley Road/St. Clement's Area and don't fancy the crowds overly - the sheer quaffability of Youngs ordinary helps one settle in for a good session. Previously called The Oranges and Lemons (or something like that), a large picture in the pub depicts it when it was a hub of the local music scene. Those days have gone but it remains a decent option.

Friendly Young's pub. I had the Ordinary which was lovely. It's all open plan which makes it a little souless, but a good bet nonetheless.

Usually always a safe bet. Beer always in good condition whenever I have been in. Nice decor.....perhaps a few question marks on the hugh black and white photograph of the pub in a previous life showing 1977 punks enjoying a beer in the sun which is an unmissable feature point on the wall in the main bar.
