Another olde Abingdon building, and looks rather grand. The main bar is located to the right side in the courtyard; it sports flagstone flooring, stone walls, stripped wonky wood beams and a conservatory extension – so a newish refurb, but tastefully done. It’s quite tight and fairly atmospheric. Four ales on at arrival, 2x Loose Cannon, Hooky and Waddies 6X. My Loose Cannon Dark went off fairly quick and mine was the last out but it was decent, a shame the glass was filthy. Later got on the Loose Cannon Abingdon Bridge which was in good shape but again a shocking glass. There's a function room on the right side of the courtyard which is a nice traditional space and has its own bar. Plenty of courtyard seating and a bar here too, a nice set up. So a mix of positives and negatives – the disgusting glassware is a basic error, which knocks a point off for sloppiness.

A narrow Olde Worlde Abingdon pub just off the main drag, this looks the business inside with its exposed stone walls, wooden beams and flagstoned floor. In fact it appears to have been even narrower ar one stage as half of the room appears to be a new conservatory build with a bare-boarded floor. The bar is located to the top right-hand corner of the room and had an eclectic range of ales, comprising Caledonian Autumn Red, Otherside IPA (brewer unknown), Palmers 200 and something called King Charles - a brewery rebadge. There was also a boxed cider behind the bar from the local Tutts Clump cider co. The Palmers wasn't really my bag, but the surrounds were pleasant enough and they seemed to be doing a good trade food-wise so a decent all-rounder.

My review below is still current except they now have a pub quiz every sunday and thursday. There is a large outside paved drinking area useful in the summer. Has occasional beer festivals.
