Description: Welcome to Oxford's favourite pub.Just outside the old city gates in Oxford's historic suburb, you'll find The Jericho Tavern, a bastion of beautiful beers damn fine pub food and upcoming musical talent - so our learned patrons tell us. There's a touch of The Jericho's bohemian spirit about the pub, which is a hub of activity throughout the week and a favourite with film fans of the nearby Phoenix cinema.

This place has so much atmosphere, great live music night upstairs, good basic pub food and is located at the centre of the trendy Jericho night scene, so why oh why can't they just get the details right, such as clearing the glasses and rubbish off the tables and wiping them and the bar down? It is not a pleasant experience sticking to tables and coming home with coat sleeves stinking of someone else's spilt ale, simply because lazy undertrained bar staff can't be bothered to keep standards up. It is annoying as I would like to use this as a regular stop off but have been disappointed every time.

A great place to spend a few hours . Frozen to the point of permafrost we were recommended this place by a local and found it well worth the extra 1/2 mile walk. Great pub atmosphere with good beer and reasonably priced good quality food and the menu offered good variety. One of our party ordered a medium steak and it came well done but there was no fuss about changing it.
It would be great if they relocated to my home city! The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. Even the doorman was cheerful and engaging when we were leaving

Very helpful, happy staff. A good range of food on the menu at decent prices. Plenty of seating. We went at Sunday lunchtime and most people seemed to be eating. Good selection of drinks at the bar and good atmosphere. Would go again.

Great atmosphere here and the staff were very friendly. As I was driving and considering they are a bar, they were more than happy to make coffee. Warm and friendly, it was packed, hardly room to move but very nice nevertheless.

Great looking pub with an amazing selection of beers on tap and bottled. Me and my partner settled for the 3 course set menu. I can't remember the exact price but it was under £20 per head. Great whitebait and a lovely gammon steak followed by an amazing chocolate brownie. Simple food done well which is hard to find in this city.
