Quinno _ left this review about The Cricketers Arms

Side street GK pub which looks like it might have been fairly pleasant many years ago. Pretty basic interior, two rooms with a pool table and darts off left and a larger main bar on the right with the pervasive smell of old fags ingrained as if the smoking ban only happened last month rather than 15 years ago. Gaudy colours, the baby poo green bar being a lowlight. On a bright sunny day the interior was rather gloomy. One ale on, a fair GK OSH (NBSS 3). Needs lightening and brightening up, otherwise I wonder whether it'll see out the decade.

Just off the very top of the beginning of Oxford's Cowley Road, this is a large 30s-style GK-owned pub with a surprisingly small interior. An 'up-front' car park has a small door to the left leading to a main bar area on the right and a pool room dead ahead. GK IPA and Hook Norton Greedy Goose (£1.75 a half) were the two ales available (a third was unclipped). Massively local, and it was only when I left that I remembered about The Nelson's closure in nearby Cowley centre a few years ago.
