Although I'm not a fan of pubs changing their historic names to something more trendy, this revamping formula by Dodo Pubs / Arkells (how much are they linked?) seems to be successful. A selection of beers on tap and tasters offered – not all from Arkells but the 3Bs was very good. Although we didn't eat here, there's a straightforward burger and pizza menu. Quite why a quirky industrial interior design makes a pub attractive is a mystery to me, but it's a popular place with good beer.

Does the décor look a bit old hat now? Or maybe I have just been inside too many pubs which have metal chairs and bookshelves. The Arkell's Hoperation IPA was better than average but nothing exceptional and the choice of cider was limited to bottles only. As a previous reviewer said, it's "pleasant".

The Rickety Press for some time now and a sister pub to the Rusty Bicycle on Magdalen Road, the food is good and the Arkells ales exemplary but the seating for non diners is at a premium and prices higher than at its fellow establishment. An essential part of an Jericho pub crawl but lacks the true community feel of the Rusty BIke.

Arkells pub, modern stripped out style but well done. Nice and warm. Wiltshire Gold 3.20 and good. Food menu is prominent, plenty of people eating. Attracts a certain clientel who can afford to eat out. Strange crossroads outside, everyone has to give way.

Great makeover and seems to be doing well. Quite an intimate interior with old books round the walls and mood lighting, but still somewhere you can go as a group also.

Very much still a pub where you can still just go for a drink, they also do some tasty random bar snacks from the kitchen (sausage rolls a while back but think it changes weekly).
