user reviews of the Old Black Horse, Oxford

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

A resolute ignorer of gentrification. Jeff Stelling's voice booms out, there are absolutely no resl ales on tap and the clientele is of the hardened drinker variety. This is all the more surprising given the pub's location on a main drag in east Oxford and its origins ad a coaching inn (the building is gorgeous from the outside). The front garden features various characters in increasing states of inebriation as an evening wears on. Service was very affable but this is no place to linger.

What a dive! I would recommend avoiding this place at all costs. Toilets are filthy and so are the glasses. I dread to think what their hotel accommodation and kitchen is like! Also nearly broke my neck on loose flooring in the pub to which the staff did not seem concerned and just laughed! Yes the drinks are cheep but so are plenty of other pubs in oxford so dont waste your time n find somewhere else!!!

I too was quite impressed with this when I visited a while back. A friendly atmosphere busy with people watching sports on a big telly. The barman was an extremely affable either Australian or South African (I forget now), who helped us get our money out of the ItBox when it short-changed us!

During my first visit to this 17th century coaching inn I thought it was just a hotel bar. I remember my group being the only people in here and having to punch in a code to get to the urinal.

Against my better judgement I was dragged in here again to watch Burnley v Arsenal at the beginning of the year, what a difference. The extremely helpful barman opened up the upstairs room so that we could all sit comfortably and watch the match and the place was bustling with rugby and football fans. I tucked into the Stella and a dodgy Japanese lager (£1.50 a pint I think) and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Iíll definitely pop back when Iím in the area again.
