Had a lovely meal here - beautiful, quaint, tiny pub oozing history!! Difficult to get a table because it's always full but worth the effort.

One of the memorable pubs of Oxford and we believe the best fish and chips. Limited seating so go early or be patient, as it is worth it. Can't beat the location - right on Broad Street.

Couldn't get in the first two tries, but made it for lunch. Lucky me! The Lamb Shank special was fabulous and a good deal at 10.95 pounds. I was stuffed. Definitely recommend as the real deal.

So charming, lovely staff and reasonably priced drinks. We did not eat here, but the food looked (and smelt!!) lovely. Obviously there is the Morse connection, but it would be a place we would visit anyway.

Tiny little pub sandwiched between two outlets of Blackwells Book/Music shops. Dark interior with wood panelling and so atmospheric. Photos of John Thaw (Morse) Kevin Whateley (Lewis) Laurence Fox (Hathaway) and Sean Evans (Endeavour). Good choice of ales and ciders, cramped seating, but a gem...More

This pub is great! The food is fabulous and plentiful. The staff friendly. The pub itself is cosy and much smaller than in 'Morse', tho' we would recommend it. Seats are close together, which adds to the ambience of the pub. If you're doing a...More
