Never eaten here but have spent many summer nights. Can get a bit busy and noisy with students in term time. Bar smells bad.

This quirky little place is hidden away from the road and is an amazing place to visit as a result. We sat in the courtyard, looking up at wonky rooflines and historic buildings. Really reasonably priced drinks. We didn't eat here, but lots of people...More

Visited here while touring Oxford University with our Teens. Loved the food, atmosphere, and people watching. Everything was delicious and we ended up visiting here more than once during our stay.

This is a traditional spot in town for staff and students of the University, and tourists too. Very close to landmarks like the Bodleian Library. Serves delicious, local ales and periodically offers taste nights and is always a great place to learn about British 'beers'...More

Ok to see this place for its history, luckily it was nice weather so sat outside, small quaint pub down an alleyway. Prices as all pubs in the area we found to be a bit expensive. Glad we went but wouldn't do a return visit...More
