Just popped in for a while when there was "Jazz in the courtyard", perfect. The courtyard is tastefully done and the rest of the pub is very quirky, great place to spend a couple of hours.

The Rose and Crown is my "local" when I am in Oxford. Live Jazz on Sundays. Great conversation and atmosphere all week long. The proprietors and staff are delightful as well.

The gardens are a lovely place to sit outside when it’s warm. There’s a good selection of drinks - a bit on the pricey side but that’s what you expect from Oxford.

Really enjoyable atmosphere with an outside beer garden. Very friendly staff and solid pub food selection. My only regret was that there was no television and the world cup was on.

In Oxford you'll find a warm welcome at the Rose and Crown (built in 1863). Run by Deborah and Andrew for 30years, the award winning pub is popular with students, locals and tourists of all ages and interests. The bar stocks a range of traditional English bitter on handpump, as well as good wines, malt whiskies, Belgian bottled beers and lager. The menu offers a selection of hot and cold meals, freshly made sandwiches and light snacks. The traditional interior is simply styled with a cosy, characterful atmosphere and to the rear a vine-draped, heated and covered courtyard. Close to the town centre. Recommendations include The Good Pub Guide, The Good Beer Guide, The Quiet Pint.
