I am lucky enough to get to Oxford a couple of times a year, and each time I always make a beeline for the L&F - slightly away from the main town area but worth it.
The atmosphere is always perfect - no juke box, no fruit machines - just beer and conversation.
The cellar is well kept, and I would second the previous comments on Old Peculiar.
Food is basic, but tasty and generous e.g. the ploughman's salad comes with a choice of two 'proteins' e.g. pork pie or Stilton or ham (nice and thick).
Staff are friendly, polite, chatty and service is nice and quick.
Finally, a nice twist is that all profits from the pub go to providing scholarships for graduate students - effectively every pint sold goes to helping a student's education.
I'll just keep on going back.
