Review of The Turf

The Turf
Ranked #18 of 57 Nightlife in Oxford
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 July 2012

Tucked away round the corner of New college lies the Turf a wonderful old boozer with a very good selection of real ales and decent pub grub (lasagne and chips are a good accompanyment to soaking up beer).

Gets packed during term time with students so best avoided however on a Saturday afternoon out of term full of locals enjoying a pint or two.

Wonderful building and a great atmosphere. It does get overly packed and the food is average and priced ok for Oxford. Toilets are interesting and outside, not great in the cold and wet! But still a good watering hole, if you are lucky enough to find it!

Pub number 2 of our pub crawl in Oxford. My favorite. The actual pub is so old and quaint. Low ceiling. The oldest pub in Oxford. Even when busy service is good. The ales were great. There is outdoor deatng, but it does not have the same atmosphere as he pub itself. So if you are in a large group, you will end up sitting outside.

A so-called real ale pub, but they refuse to accept their beer is undrinkable even when three different people are telling them so. It's a shame because the beer is usually fine here, but showing such scant regard for customers makes me recommend you go to one of many nearby pubs where you will get better service and a better pint: King's Arms, White Horse, Chequers, Bear, Old Tom, Far From The Madding Crowd, Royal Blenheim, Eagle and Child, Lamb and Flag will all get my custom before I set foot in the Turf again.

Dirty & expensive. Standing room only in term time. Undergrads love it!
