Good beer, good pizza and friendly staff, but unfortunately absolutely no character compared to its days as The Gloucester Arms. The White Rabbit, much like Far From The Madding Crowd used to be, would appear to be a busy pub but having looked closer it appears to be full of people sat around a table having their discussions whilst slowly nursing their one drink for the evening. Decent enough pub but in my experience the current clientele offer a pretty bland atmosphere.

Now renamed and reopened as The White Rabbit, the result is pleasing enough with White Horse bitters on tap and a pizza kitchen but do we need another pub like this? At least the previous incarnation as rockers' pub provided something different and the new name must have taken very little imagination to conjure up.

Scruffy but likeable rock pub with 2 or 3 interesting ales on. Very near the equally likeable Far From the Madding Crowd.

What a great pub, full of people that make Marilyn Manson look a conservative dresser. A dark pub in many senses of the word, sticky tables, a mainly thrash metal and heavy metal jukebox, a friendly place. Saw 3 handpumps and as this isn't a pub that's really on the Oxford real ale map I wondered how well kept the beers would be, I shouldn't have worried they were in good nick, like many things with this pub, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

Personally, I'm more of a 'hard rock' fan than 'heavy metal' but found this ok, with a friendly barman and the music not oppressive. Beer choice was reasonable (Yale Brewery 'Beat Bitter' on this occasion).
