Tris C left this review about The Seacourt Bridge

Despite its OX2 postcode, this pub seems to be in the Vale of the White Horse district council, so I’m not sure if it’s actually in Oxfordshire. Either way, it’s in Botley, at bleak and depressing junction, with an ugly 10-storey office block topped with a spire, car hire outlets, a Premier Inn and salesrooms for the likes of DFS; there are also two opticians, so perhaps residents are blind to their surroundings.
On arriving, one of the first things you notice about the pub is the large pictorial billboard, displaying the food available within; nice. Once inside though, it’s a different story, with a carpeted floor, tiled bar apron, traditional furniture with cloth upholstered banquettes. I’m guessing that the pub was [re]built in the 1930s as a roadhouse pub, as there’s much in the way of quite attractive period leaded, stained glass to little nooks, with a more impressive backlit array atop the pot shelf. There’s sport TV, sound down so as not to interfere with barely audible mood music, garish flashing games machines and ugly sauce bottles alongside pictorial plastic menus on tables. Customers were a bunch of older locals and students, doubtless somewhat aggrieved at having to live this far out.
Ales amounted to two unused pumps, Bombardier, Hobgoblin and three clipped for Banks’s Amber at a very agreeable £1.70 a half and fine, served by a taciturn landlady.
This pub is better than expected and could really be quite good in the right hands. However, given the location and utter slog to get here, it’s really only a place to visit if you’re staying in the Premier Inn, with a rental vehicle in the car park; this is the sort of place that would find favour with Alan Partridge – Ah Ha!

Large staple-shaped Marstons local. A few nice old (well, 1960’s) features inside like the back lit bar gantry with fake stained glass upper. Horizontal striped pub carpet, TV football and fairly traditional seating. Lubricated regulars blocking the bar with comedy bantz. Three ales on from the Marstons stable; Wychwood Hobgoblin, Banks Amber (NBSS 1.5, an appley mess) and another I forgot to note before the sea of middle-aged spread closed back over the view of the pumps. There's a good pub trying to get out here.

The only pub left in Botley, this is now under Marston's auspices and is almost their take on a Wetherspoons with cheap meals (some including a drink) and general cheap pricing (I paid £3.10 for a pint of Bank's Blazing Fury). Ales also included such luminaries as Banks's Amber (x2), Marston's Pedigree and Wychwood Hobgoblin with an additional pump unclipped. A central staple-shaped bar faces, wooden faced with a lino-tiled bar apron and carpet all around either sides. Open above-bar shelving with backlit stained glass inserts above. There are 'breakout' snugs semi-hidden from the main bar area behind the far left-hand and right-hand walls. Plenty of Wetherspoons-esque characters in situ but the interior is still pretty good and the tables weren't sticky, so they're one-up on the Mullet Meister's chain in that regard.
