Met here for a drink before going over to the museum for a wedding. Large selection of beers from which to choose. Service was prompt and friendly and a relaxing place after a walk down the less than relaxing Oxford Road. Did not have any food but would have contemplated something to eat. Seemed fairly well kept.

Typical student type bar/restaurant - wooden floors, lots of tables, seating outside at the front and at the back. Plenty of beer choices as well as other refreshments. Gent's toilet a bit whiffy!

Dropped in here for coffee and cake. Both were very nice. Service was with a smile. We sat outside at the back which is nice and quiet away from the noise from all the roadworks currently taking place on Oxford road.

Grabbed a quick bite in between sessions held at the university and was more than impressed. It was busy when we went in, but service was quick. Ordered a battered halloumi sandwich with sweet chilli on focaccia (honestly - just try it, you will not be disappointed) and some sweet potato fries. I left so satisfied you wouldn't believe! All...

I've been here several times over the last year and its a lovely bar with outdoor areas at the front and back and rooms that can be reserved for larger parties upstairs. The drinks selection is good and they also serve hot drinks. The food can be a bit hit and miss and I previously found the flatbread pizza disappointing... More

Nestled perfectly on the Oxford Corridor and amidst the student populous, Kro (a "Danish Village Pub") constantly has an influx of visitors from lunchtime to evening, and as other reviewers have highlighted, this is probably to its detriment, as this popularity means that Kro may struggle to compete during Academic vacations or entice customers from other parts of the city...

We visited here before going to a gig at the academy. The concept is great as i loved Danish food but it was a great experience. I asked what IPA beers they had but was met with two bar staff who were quite unhelpful and seemed to be put out by answering the question. Not a great selection overall.

I've taken several of my friends here and everyone loves it. The menu is very extensive so there's plenty to choose from from both the breakfast and lunch menu. And for those of us who like to sleep in breakfast is served till 3pm! They also have a nice garden area to eat in out the back.

The terrace of the Kro Bar is always quite crowded when I walk by. Went there myself last weekend and I quite liked it. You need to order by the bar, but the food is brought to the table. Good ciders and ales, and the small dishes to share are good if you just fancy a bite between meals.
