Not sure how you could raise a yard-glass in this place unless you're really short or kneel down - but great to come and have a pint in this hallowed place of okker fame!

great experience with food and drinks. Not suitable for rainy day. Normally closes by 11pm. Service is great and ideal venue to meet visitors to Oxford. Got wet on a rainy night. Need some help to locate the place as cannot be seen.

Including Morse and Lewis. Very nice staff, will allow you to have someone take your photo while you are behind the bar! Nicely hidden away place to go for one of those great Oxfordshire Bitters
