Nothing wrong with this pub, but then again it feels pretty ordinary - rather large, seemingly televisions everywhere so \I suppose if you want to be antisocial and watch football this is the place for you.

I went as an older lady on my own for Sunday lunch and was seated by a window. Then I was totally ignored. After about half an hour I decided nobody was going to take my order so I got up and left feeling very ignored, fed up and hungry.

The place was closed for a while for a re-vamp. Meals were tepid and uninteresting. Get a new chef! Also two of the ales were not on tap...so only two to choose from. The IPA had to be returned as it was not right. Horrid noisy noisy footy on tv - very high decibel sound. So we left.

Thank xbc

We were staying at the nearby Travelodge and walked here for dinner one night. Friendly staff, good service and a nice range of standard pub fare. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend!

They have reasonable prices a good burgers. I went early so it was almost empy. It is mainly aimed to watch sports events but it is a great dining option too.

This is a good cheap pub, the food price is on a par with a Wetherspoons and for what you pay is fine. However I do think they could improve a few things to make the place a bit better.... The tables don't seem to be wiped down regularly, they dont appear as clean as they could be, surely after... More

On the surface this place looks ok, easy reach from the local travel lodge, on the way in to Oxford town centre. It has a lot going for it. Table was found and a menu which provides enough choice for a traditional pub group meal. The beers looked impressive, especially and the hand pumped ones, but they were flat, very... More

Big pub in unexciting part of Oxford. Within walking distance of Travelodge on Abingdon Road. Nice beer and ok if unexciting food. Good value.
