Profile information

Devonian by birth. Found out about real beer when a student in Liverpool in mid 70´s Never looked back.

Travelled throughout the world as a Merchant Seaman. So can say with a little experience that both British Beer and Pubs are unique and envied throught the globe.

Have seen too meny pubs ruined and turned into ¨kids palaces¨ churning out Euro or Aus fizz, that has been produced by factory. Not crafted by someone who loves beer.

I understand that the market rules all. These places make money and cater for a trade. But please don´t destroy any more proper pubs.

The Bookbinders Ale House, Oxford

Just about the last pub left in Jerico. Handy for the canal.
Very entertaining French Chef (Owner?). He pointed out to us we had arrived at the magic half hour when the lunchtime and evening menus were both available.So a great selection on offer. seemed to be a changing selection of guest ales and quite a lot of bottles on offer. remembering this was Oxford, it was reasonably priced.

The Barley Mow, Upper Heyford

Fullers range of beers. Had the London Pride which was in very good form.
Mainly locals with a few diners in the back room. Friendly and helpful staff.
The food was good and very well priced. Nice beer garden as well

The Brasenose Arms, Cropredy

Finally got to recreate my own take on the Fairport Convention Nine album cover.
Handily located for the festival and those like us cruising on the Oxford canal.My pint of London pride was fine and the food was reasonably priced. Friendly staff although a little unsure about, which food you could have, in which area. Bar meals seemed to be different to those in the restaurant bit.
