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.

Decent sized one roomed bar under one of the arches under Oxford Road Station. It's flag floored with wooden, pew like seating around the walls. There's a raised area to the right with leather look seating. The service was friendly enough, but the ale was a bit on the cold side. There are 4 handpumps for ale plus a real cider. On my visit 3 of the ale handpumps were on serving changing guest ales. There's a large outdoor seating area under the arch. There's alao a DJ rig in one corner which is used at weekends. It was quite pleasant during my early Friday evening visit, but I suspect it gets a lot busier and louder later on. I quite liked this pub and will no doubt revisit when in the area.
