Another characterful Jericho boozer which has been much visited and reviewed.
Our Wednesday evening visit found a very popular curry night in progress and the food smelt and looked good. With the emphasis on vegetarian it certainly attracted the crowds.
Beers on were: Loose Cannon Recoil, Box Horse Box, London Hoppit and Ringwood Old Thumper. A decent range and the Recoil slid down easily enough.
Worth dropping in to see and to see what's on.

A first in here on our PuG crawl last July and I've certainly missed out over the 23-year on/off time spent in Oxford.
Nicely described below with the two room format, one lined with books and both topped with vinyl album covers published over the last 50-odd years. There's a small bar with some copper pipe shelving to the rear and there are some internal beams with a bare floor and traditional furniture. There's a long thin rear garden with traditional outhouse lavatories. Food is served but it's 100% vegan/vegetarian. Clients are a mixed bunch; academics and ordinary (for Jericho) locals - this pub is sufficiently off the beaten track to be missed out by tourists though is home to at least one annual 'steampunk' festival.
Despite making two return visits since July, I can't remember what I drank, but I do know that the ales were on top form though attracted Jericho prices.
The pub's website describes the staff as friendly for which I normally read 'miserable bastards'. But it's true! The staff here genuinely are friendly, even at the end of the day (the pub has a very welcome 12.00 am licence Monday to Saturday and 11.00 pm on Sunday).
This is a superb little pub and worth more than a detour as I would describe this as an Oxford destination, made all the better when combined with the Rose & Crown and Victoria in between.
My only criticism? My pickled onion was slimy which is unpardonable - a pickled onion should be identified by its sharp crunch.

The Oxford area of Jericho has some very good back street corner pubs and first time to visit this one. As mentioned by other reviewers it retains two traditional wood floored and wood panelled front sections as you enter the front door. The small bar serving area is housed in the right section and the left is larger and has a corridor leading to the very pleasant outside garden area. It was a fine weather day for our visit so the outside space was being well utilised at the expense of the internal rooms. So our party were able to utilise the left hand room and take in the collection of classic vinyl album covers and the large collection of beer pump clips that adorn the upper wall space of both rooms.
Four beers available from the pimps on the small bar and for our visit these were North Cotwold Brewery Summer Solstice, Wantsum Brewery Montgomery, Box Clever Ales Soul train and a very pleasant XT4.
Really enjoyed it here and will not hesitate to return when next in Jericho.
