|Great beers, which change regularly. They have a policy of keeping one below £3 at all times which is great news for an evening out. There are a group of 4 or 5 pubs which are great real ale visits in the centre of Oxford, and just for the beer this is the best of the lot.|
Really well run Pub Quiz on a Sunday night, too.

|Pub number 4, tucked away down a side alley.|
Unlike the other pubs I had visited this day, the Far is more like an out of town estate pub.
Friendly bar staff and customers.
2 lots of 3 pumps, dispensing a range of beers from different breweries. Between the 3 of us we each had a different pint and the satisfaction levels were high.
A great pump clip collection around the bar and the side walls.

|Located down a side street off the high street, a open plan pub that sells around 6 real ales all of which were in good condition.|
Prompt, helpful bar staff and fairly busy on a Saturday evening.

|Not one of the "oldy-worldy" pubs of Oxford but quite simply, on the basis of Ale, the best. They have one local regular Ale and 6 that constantly change. For me, best of all, it is one of the very few pubs in Oxford where you'll get a Dark Ale. And, friendly staff many of whom know their Ale !|

|Visited last week during city crawl. Not changed much since last time. Beer range still interesting, featuring smaller breweries. I rather enjoyed Grafton's Love A Duc. Can't comment on the food as I'd eaten elsewhere beforehand. While I liked the pub, and its friendly staff, I found the rather open-plan layout less attractive than some of Oxford's cosier, more intimate pubs such as the White Horse or the Lamb and Flag. However that's just personal taste and Far from the Madding Crowd is certainly a good pub with a food and beer reputation that speaks for itself, and its place in the 2013 Good Beer Guide is well deserved.|
