The last reviewer was spot on with his prediction - the premises reopened last month as a chain Caribbean restaurant.

Farewell to the Madding Crowd which closed on Saturday having opened as a new venture in 2002 down an alleyway on the edge of Oxford's main shopping area. Unfortunately the premises were inconducive to a traditional pub atmosphere but a good selection of ever-changing ales and regular CAMRA GBG listings and local awards helped to maintain a steady customer base. However Oxford city centre, which used to be a bit of a real ale desert, has seen a considerable rise in recent times of establishments offering a wide range of ales which has dissipated the level of trade here over the last two years or so. I suspect it is unlikely to reopen as a bar, more probably as yet another restaurant, and I wish the proprietor Charles Eld a happy retirement.

Still a great pub. Shame it isn't one of the Oxford pubs of the year. Super beer and food.

Tucked away in an alley by Tesco local, we circled this pub before we found it. It was worth the effort.

A varied clientele and relaxed atmosphere was a promising feel when we entered. The friendly barstaff were fantastic.

We stayed for at least 4 pints.

Highly recommended.

Surprisingly quiet on a Friday lunchtime, but then there are a lot of other pubs close by. Very attentive and friendly staff and a good range of beers.
