Gets a bad rap because it's student infested at peak times - and these are the kinds of students who attended Radley and Stow to boot - but it's not too bad in an 'if you are an avid fan of Cold Feet' sort of way - so, tasteful with a couple of decent but predictable beers on tap - Brakspear's and London Pride on this occasion and the food - I once tried a pie - more than passes muster in a city where pub food generally outstrips that on offer at restaurants.

Proper relaxed pub with comfy sofas, very agreeable food, decent cider, friendly staff. We like.

Good location between town and Cowley / Headington, but don't go out of your way. The Star around the corner is better.

Mitchell and Butler venue that has had the M&B retro/gastro makeover, like many of their venues that were formerly run as 'Scream' joints. As such, you know what you will get - a decent range of lager, creditable range of real ale, and a pretty agreeable ambiance. I'm fairly partial to this line of pubs; they are certainly a vast improvement over the 'Scream' atrocities.

The new Cape of Good Hope is a nice place. While it is a little generic in its interior (new bar cum pub cum wine bar) it is a nice refit and the bar staff are nice, attentive and attractive (not that it really matters). A great selection of world beers, especially good seing some more Belgian and Bavarian beers on show than the usuals (try the Paulaner Pils). Especially good on a Friday when the crowd is of all ages, friendly and usually up for a good night both in and out.
