Perhaps a tad over-rated as it featured in a 'Oxford Craft Ale Scene' article in the Guardian. That said, the craft brews are decent (albeit mainly shipped in in cans) and the downstairs is shaping itself as a good music venue albeit not one you should practice any moggy swinging in.

One of the few pubs actually located on Oxford's Cowley Road, and conveniently located a door or so away from the O2 Academy after a typically acerbic Sleaford Mods gig on a Wednesday night. The narrowness can be a drawback at busy times, but the extended opening hours are a fillip on a post-gig weeknight, and the sole real ale - Loose Cannon's Dark Wheat - was spot-on, as was one of the craft beers (Boston Lager). The décor is well-judged as is the background music, with songs from PM Dawn (the Spandau Ballet one), Django Django and Thriller-era Michael Jackson covering most bases for the mixed clientele. Jason Williamson popped in as I was leaving which gave it a further seal of approval.

Good tiny pub, no great shakes for ale, but sells quality lagers. Good funk night on on certain weekday eves - worth checking out then as really is too small to be fun at busy times

Total gem of a pub. In fact thinking of The Brickworks brings a tear to my eye now I've moved out of Oxford.
