Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Font

Trendy modern bar with a split-level arrangement as you enter, supplemented by an additional basement seating area. Mix of furniture and relatively plain decor. The emphasis seems to be on cocktails, but there are also four handpumps offering a decent selection of real ales: Vocation 'Pride & Joy', two from Brewsmith - APA (Australian Pale Ale) and Oatmeal Stout (£4.20) - and Marble 'A Carefully Planned Pale'. Although being a good 20+ years older than anybody else when I visited late one evening, I could see the appeal and found it one of the best places for a pint in the immediate area - a very pleasant surprise.

Hidden down a side street next to the viaduct that brings the trains to and from Oxford Rd Station this is a fairly decent enough place which, I assume, is popular with students of an evening. The pub is on a variety of levels with a basement bit which wasn't open on this midweek afternoon visit. 4 handpumps on the bar with a very good selection of ales available.

Called in on the 14th of November its one of those places were its full of those sort of students think they are something but arenot just trying to out do each other one day they will come into the real world and find there is a thing called getting a job poor things.
Apart from my rant its a nice enough place the guy behind the bar was ok with me even if i did not fit inhad a good pint of Moor top it was very pale its from the Buxto brewery
