Nice traditional pub

Popped in for a drink while visiting Oxford. Nice, clean inside with seating by the window and back. Didn't have the food (Thai) but some people on a nearby table did and it looked well presented.

when ordering items from menu we were told that is what not avaialbe, and instead offered a green Thai curry, this tasted and looked like something you prepare from something sold in the supermarket

This from the outside is an ordinary Pub, however besides the usual drinks, this doubles as a Thai Restaurant and surprisingly the food is excellent good value and polite and friendly staff. A very convivial atmosphere and a most enjoyable evening I would recommend this Pub to all visitors to Oxford within 2 mins of the city centre.

Almost directly across the street from the Tom Gate of Christ Church College on St. Aldates, The Old Tom looks like a standard British Pub -- darkened wood, multi-paned windows, and a healthy number of locals drinking pints at the bar. But the odd moment came when I checked the menu and discovered that they almost exclusively serve Thai food.... More

We went here again as we have always enjoyed the food. Again it wasn't a disappointment. The Satay and prawn tempura were delicious. Mains were also great, a good size and a fair price. We didn't have to wait long for food despite there being lots of others also ordering food. Very pleased

This pub on St Aldates across from Christ Church has a terrace in the back. The pub serves typical Thai food, but portions are rather small.

A little pub across from Christchurch College. The lagers and ales are reasonably priced with several selections on tap. The menu of Thai food is not extensive. The noodles dishes are quite good and not overly greasy. The coconut soup was a bit thin. Nice place for a quick bite.

Reasonable pub grub, and some thai dishes. Fish and chips good, but the curries are excellent. Not the best ambiance, and the eating area is a bit cramped.
