Komakino . left this review about The Ampleforth

This inter-war (1938) pub, closed for a couple of years, has recently become a community-owned venture (the eighth in the county of Oxfordshire), although, sadly, just half of the original pub now operates as a going concern - the major half now agreed to be converted to flats. Pleasingly, well-attended on a Sunday arvo visit, the current incarnation has rooms either side of an old school 30s entrance, interconnected with a bar serving both. TV screens either side showing a Premier League match and a three-ale line-up of Black Sheep. Black Sheep Holy Grail and Shotover Prospect (the latter in decent shape and great on the beer miles). Some of the locals are colourful, but the friendly barstaff made up for it and a resurrection is always to be applauded. It's a shame the whole pub couldn't have been brought back to life, but something is better than nothing.

Relatively basic two room (knocked-through) estate boozer. Bar to the left with nice maroon banquette and a TV showing Sky Sports News. Pool, darts, pinball and jukey to the right. Oxford Utd supporting pub, with the colours on display. Two ales, Wadworth 6X and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde (warm and poor condition on both counts). Shame.
