Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Thirsty Scholar

The Thirsty Scholar has the feel of a cellar bar, being in an arch of the railway line into Oxford Road station. With the Salisbury across the way still closed 10 minutes after its published opening time, we decided to give this pub a try.

As it's name suggests, the pub is clearly popular with the local student community. They would normally have 3 real ales to choose from. On our Sunday lunchtime visit, these were Moorhouse's White Witch & Pendle Witches Brew & Beartown Peach Melbear. I ordered the Pendle Witches Brew. But it soon became apparent that it was off, which didn't bode well considering we were the first customers through the door. The Peach Melbear was nice enough though.

In addition to the beers, there was a pumpclip for Weston's Old Rosie turned round. I later spotted a box of the cider behind the bar and asked if it was on. Sure enough it was and despite pointing out the turned clip, no action was taken. Why stock a real cider, if you're not prepared to let customers know?

A couple of other customers did arrive, but it remained fairly quiet. I'd return now knowing that a cider is stocked, alongside an interesting ale range.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Thirsty Scholar

Single-room music bar located underneath the Oxford Road railway viaduct. Very basic furniture and decor around the bar and on a small raised area. Also has a dubious-looking patio area out under the arch. Two Hornbeam real ales - Lemon Blossom and Orange Blossom (£3.60), Bootleg Lawless and Rosie's Pig cider from four of five handpumps. Surprisingly quiet when I visited one evening, but probably rather busier later in the week

Though it might look uninviting from the outside, with its front covered in 'street art', it is not too bad inside. The interior is described below with the bar directly ahead of you as you enter. Real ale available.
