Definitely not the best Thai but it is very reasonable & the portions are huge (you could easily share) I'd compare the food to a basic take out place which seems a bit harsh but if you're drinking in the pub is really nice to be able to get some cheap eats

On a recent visit to Oxford we were trying to find a pub with decent beer and food without too many tourists or over-run by noisy students. This was a great find, serving food all day at the weekend. The welcome was great, a couple of decent draught beers and lovely Thai food. Music on softly and a relaxed atmsphere... More

Well that was great for a family impromptu lunch in the centre of Oxford. Great fresh food and great value. Nice old pub but friendly Thai staff

Ate here during a long weekend in Oxford. My wife and I have been fortunate to eat in some fancy restaurants all over, but we still enjoy this type of relaxed meal. Dont expect table cloths etc, all served in a pub environment, but nice fresh food with rice included straight on your plate. No "plastic" thai here, just a... More

Popped into Old Toms for a quick drink early saturday evening, seemed a nice quiet little pub, on leaving we found my wife's handbag was missing, bar staff could not care less, and although they car CCTV would not let us check it, and after a long protracted conversation they reluctantly called the police. Would avoid at all costs to... More

I ordered curry vegetables and got a little disappointed. It is more like vegetable soup with curry taste -- very different from what you would expect in a typical Thai food restaurant.

When you get your food served so quickly you may be forgiven for 'thinking' that this food will be lacking in something! But it never does!! This lovely quaint pub serves one of the best thai red curries I have eaten. Tasty, spicy, flavoursome curries accompanied by a cheap option of an additional starter of spring rolls, or tasty satay!... More

The beer selection was fairly limited, but the red wine was ok. The food looked fairly charming. Not a very alluring venue though.

We stopped in Oxford to spend the afternoon walking around and decided to lunch here before taking off to see this wonderful city. The ambiance was nice, the service cheerful and attentive, and the food was very good. All this, and it was very convenienet to pretty much everything we wanted to see.

Whenever I fancy a Thai green curry I always go to this place. It's the most delicious green curry I have ever tasted. Their spring rolls are pretty good too and the prices are very reasonable.
