“What a great pub”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Popped here for a quick late night drink, which ended up being three pints. Such wonderful crowd and staff. There was live music that night and the atmosphere was absolutely fabulous.

“Superb pub, standard food”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Restaurant: Rather out of the way for a traveller and only offers pizzas. Perfectly fine pizzas at a good price for Oxford with a decent selection, but you can certainly do better (even in a pub).

Pub: Despite being Green King, they generally offer beers from Green King's acquisitions (like St. Edmonds) rather than the rather drab standard line. I like them. The pub itself has a good atmosphere, efficient staff, and a more intimate atmosphere. It's main advantage is it's open till 2 on Fridays and Saturdays, which is highly unusual in Oxford. One drawback - don't sit outside unless you need to smoke or really like traffic.

“I liked it! ”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

A place to be for drinks! The service is quick, the pints are at a very reasonable price for Oxford and the staff is helpful and friendly. Even on Saturday when it was quite busy I got advice on which ale would be the best for my taste. I will definitely return.

“Dragonfly Meeting”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Old style pub on 1 1/2 floors, the bar is on the ground floor with about 4-5 steps leading up to a 2nd floor where most of the seating is. DOESN't sell food any longer, but the landlord is willing to point you in the direction of local places that do. But does have a few real ales on sale to try, with a blackboard giving you more information about them.
