Hello

You could try the Punter - it used to be The Waterman's Arms - just to the West of the City Centre. The food is excellent and it still feels like a proper pub. Can easily fit in a table of 20.

If you want great food, I'd go for the Magdalen Arms on the corner of Iffley Road and Magdalen Road.

Be aware if you go for the Magdalen Arms that road works have commenced on the Iffley Road (due to be completed by Nov 2012!) - and could delay your journey.

thank you for your help. Is it in the centre? Is it very busy so we´ll have to book?

Hi

I think for any of the options, you will need to book for a group of 20.

Any pub that does food will struggle to cope with 20 diners all turning up at once. You should definitely book and they may even be able to do a special menu for you if you give them enough notice.

Thank you for all the advice. Definitely, I´ll book !!

Is Magdalen Arms close to the centre, say, Christ Church College? Is it close enough to go on foot?
