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.

One of the more relaxing pubs in Abingdon town centre. Not as rowdy as a lot of the others. The pub was refurbished a few months back and re-opened after being closed for a couple of years. It seems to be doing a good trade now and is proving popular. Good quality food is served and there is a choice of four real ales. Usually a choice of Hook Norton and Adnams beers which are quite rare in this area. Also, lately they have been selling the Abingdon Bridge ale from the new Loose Cannon micro brewery up the road. There is a fruit and quiz machine and once a month they have a pub quiz. There is a large courtyard outside with plentiful seating.
