Bad news ! The old tables, chairs and upholstery have been replaced by new ones. I’m sure they will weather into much cherished items, but at the moment they stick out like sore thumbs. They also don’t seem to serve Old Hookey any more, but since they now have Brains Rev James (named after my great great great grandfather !), I wasn’t complaining. Tasted pretty good too. Otherwise not much has changed since my last visit – they still do a mean chilli con carne !

A couple of years ago I went into this pub for the first time in 35 years. Apart from some photos of Morse on the wall it was exactly like I remembered it ! This place is tiny – it has to be because it’s surrounded on all sides by Blackwell’s bookshop ! The “outside drinking area” consists of one bench on the main street !

There are 3 or 4 mainly local beers on offer, but they are not cheap - approaching £4 a pint. Hook Norton Old Hookey is a regular here. [ I am hoping to establish a Pavlovian connection between the two ! ] Food isn’t cheap either – with nothing under £9. However, portions did appear to be on the generous side.

We are back on the tourist trail again here. You can stand, or sit at the bar but, the tables inside are reserved for people eating. [ Though I dare say they don’t enforce that at quiet times ] I should also point out the large collection of banknotes pinned to the wall behind the bar.

8/10 – touristy but with a great atmosphere

love the small and traditional layout.very crowded, but if you were lucky to grab a table it'd be a cnie spot to pass a few hours. also the bench out front (missing from the photo) was a great spot for people watching on a sunny afternoon

The last pub of the 6 and I must say rather disappointing

Okay it is a 16th century inn and has been used in filming episodes of Inspector Morse and Lewis but I didn't really dig the place.

Only 3 ales on but the Doom Bar was good, food was being served and also looked good.

Pictures of Morse and Lewis on the walls, low beams and a wooden interior with cute windows looking onto Broad Street.

Probably not the best for meals because the tables are small, but otherwise a fine example of a traditional Oxford pub with low ceilings, acres of woodwork and nice service. They have some good session beers but the Old Hooky shouldn't be missed either.
