Hidden away down an alley next to McDonalds. Inside is long and narrow. A Nicholsons pub so the usual focus on food. It does have a good selection of real ales (usually 6 or 7 available) and as well as the house Nicholsons Pale Ale and the likes of Doom Bar, normally has 2 or 3 more unusual ales to choose from. Service can be slow at times as the staff concentrate on food and hot drinks for the tourists. Overall though a comfortable pub. Nice large patio outside.

Pub is pretty well as described in previous review , long and narrow with lots of dark wood and beams , there is a large outside seating area .
A decent choice of ales on , i had Oxfordshire Pride of Oxford and Vale Black Beauty both pretty good .
Service depended on who served you , the barmaid was exellent but the barman was slow and clueless .
Worth a visit as part of a crawl

Recently acquired by olde worlde pub specialists Nicholsons, this looked like an intriguing prospect, situated off a small alley. Apparently the interior has had a hefty makeover and is now full of dark wood fittings, half wood panelling and beams. It’s fairly dark inside with the effect enhanced by deliberately muted lighting. Seven ales and a cider were available at the long narrow bar. We tried the Hadleys Blonde (pedestrian) and Nethergate Umbel Magna (good). One off-putting thing was that the pub seemed to have preponderance of midge-like flies.

I’d give this one another go but it didn’t immediately impress.
