On my short visit to Oxford, also came here on 23rd and 24th.

A very old pub - reportedly an inn of some sort or another for more then 750 years. Serving areas are pretty tiny and interior drinking area not much bigger! There is an outside area a bit down the lane which was well used in the warm weather and had some cool jazz playing on evening of 24th - not too loud and very enjoyable.

Service was smiling and efficient and I had pints of Shotover Prospect and Olivers Island - both very good indeed.

Some tourists obviously (me included) but also a good number of locals and regulars happy engage in a chat.

Enjoyed it very much.

What ho!

Really good boozer - just off the main drag. Great atmosphere, plenty of conversation. Great old interior with partioned alcoves and a top pint of ESB.

An enjoyable and friendly pub just off the main areas of the city. Beers all in good nick, with a very nice pints of ESB and Seafarer enjoyed. The slightly cramped, almost intimate size of the pub, means that you invariably get to talking to other people - which for some is ok, but for others not so much.

Proper pub. Worth a visit.

Tried this puib again (early this time) and had a pint of HSB. It was outstanding. Very nice little pub with lots of character. It would have been perfect if it wasn't for the rather annoying idiot talking to his wife about flying a plane at the weekend for his daughter and his 'days at Oxford'!!! 8/10 from me.
