Komakino . left this review about Cow & Creek

The Cow & Creek is a new name for a semi-Wetherspoons venture fortunately without the usual Wetherspoons clientele, but unfortunately without the beer policy either. The back of the barmaid's polo shirt said "Beer is in our Blood", but Brakspear Oxford Gold and a very poor Wychwood Hobgoblin don't really stand testament to that notion. Much the same as Quinno's visit two years back, this is another Oxford entry to give a miss to.

Quinno _ left this review about The Bell & Compass

Looks like a down market JDW from the outside. A fairly gloomy non-descript main bar that needs a lick of ceiling paint. Nicer rear raised area that has a skylight and some fabric banquette seating. Two Marstons list ales, Hobgoblin and Cumberland (cold, so-so). Mute TV showing a terrestrial channel to an audience of zero. Bland R&B music of the Yamaha preset drum loop variety. Pub grub listed on sticky menus. WiFi wouldn't connect. It exists, but why you'd choose it over other outlets in town would be a mystery outside of the weird world of pub ticking.
