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

Back in the CAMRA GBG2014 and has definitely upped it's game. There are now 4 handpumps on the bar and I hadn't tried 2 of the beers before. I had a half each of Quantum Small Beer and Siren Half Mast. The Siren was very nice the Quantum was filth, not the bars fault though as it was clear and crisp, it's just a crap beer.
They now give 25% discount off ale & real cider for CAMRA members, so my 2 halves came in at £2.49. It was pretty busy with students on my Friday early evening visit. It's well worth a visit now.

Called in twice recently. It was in the GBG 2009, it really shouldn't have been and isn't in 2010. Both pints I've had have been at best average and in my opinion poorly kept. It's a decent enough place in a studenty type of way with birdcages hanging from the ceiling and other quirky things around the place. You need to step up to the mark with the real ale though guys.
