Tris C left this review about The Jericho Tavern

2nd September 2016:

A first in here the other night, this is an amalgam of the early 19th century Jericho House, combined with the Jericho Brewery. Later a Firkin pub and now the Jericho Tavern.
Mr Fastard's review leaves little changed: conventional furniture (high and low), bare boarded, a typical blue/grey colour scheme and some modest stained glass leaded lights; some of the walls are part bare brick. Sauce bottles were on the tables and music was really a bit loud. Despite there being more than a month to go before the start of Michaelmas Term, the pub seemed full of students.
Ales up: Hook Norton's Old Hooky, Wadsworth's 6X and Hogsback's TEA at £1.80 a half and fine.
I preferred this to the neighbouring Jude the Obscure next door, but the Victoria up the road is a far better pub so I don't envisage a return visit.

----------

A return visit over my festive stay and although not a massive change, it is not quite as good as before. Bare brick aside, the colour scheme is now an overly jolly royal blue to the walls, t 'n' g panelling, electrical sockets and ceiling; there are multi-coloured fluorescent tubes to the rear wall. Furniture comprises the conventional as well as high tables and chairs with tweed upholstery; there are ox blood button back or red velour banquettes to much of the perimeter. The ale choice has diminished too.
Ales: two pumps removed, thereafter The Great Yorkshire Brewery's Top of the Hops at £3.90 a pint and fine then Black Sheep Bitter at £3.85 a pint and a bit suspect - I didn't taste like Black Sheep to me.
Worth a visit if in the area and I still prefer it to The Jude The Obscure next door, but the Victoria still proves the greater draw.

I really didn't like this place.The two buildings have had their interiors stripped out ,and it's just a huge ,noisy, wooden floored drinking barn with little of note.The board describing their craft keg options was full of quack ,while only two real ale option in the shape of Doom Bar and Brakspears Oxford Gold were available.I decided to make this a quick half but was shocked at being charged £2 for an insipid Oxford Gold which tasted of pretty much nothing.Being sub zero the beer garden was beyond my reach ,so I scurried to a corner and one of the few free tables.Pub grub is offered but most mains were north of £10,however trade was brisk.
It's certainly popular with students and post graduated,all very brainy people drinking unintelligently.I can see no reason to return.

Street corner pub, an amalgamation of two different buildings. High-ceilinged, opened-out interior of little interest bar the nice stained glass windows. The impressive rear decked patio garden took our fancy and we alighted here with our beers. Three ales at the bar, Andwell Red IPA (very cold but ok), Doom Bar and Brakspear Oxford Gold. Not one I’d be dashing back to given the riches elsewhere but worth including on a crawl of this rather pleasant area.
