Situated in an attractive residential area, quite a walk from the city centre and just a few feet from the Thames. It's now really what I'd describe as a restaurant with tables packed with diners on this Bank Holiday evening. There were about three stools at the bar with one solitary drinker and from what I could see, one equally solitary pump. There's a small patio to the side but as a drinkery, I won't bother returning.

Quinno _ left this review about The Punter

Relatively upmarket corner local, refurbished from the Watermans Arms in 2010 and only a couple of minutes from the train station if you know where you’re going. Doesn't look like much from the outside but does hold a decent position overlooking the River Isis. Bare boarded with a colour scheme not too dissimilar to the nearby Holly Bush. Here, it is less opened out, with some pillars in the main bar and a semi separate room to the left which is carpeted. Gravelled side garden that looks ok. Daily papers, dog friendly and an inlaid chess table with pieces in a mug. Various prints on the walls - equine, old Oxford and cricket. Three pumps, Morlands and Vale (pretty good) with another GK clip turned. Food offered as to be expected. Decent stop though not essential given Oxford’s riches.
