With no queues at the bar the barman was a waste of space and lacking in any knowledge of the beers... read more

But..all the shaded tables were taken. OK if you want to top up your tan. Ordered Fishfinger Brioche bun, and Haloumi finger Brioche. Very busy time but was told it would take 15 minutes. It took 20 minutes, so was acceptable. The battered deep fried...More

With no queues at the bar the barman was a waste of space and lacking in any knowledge of the beers - further more a pint with 2 centimetres of beer missing isn't what a hostel relying on write ups should be doing - I...More

This is one of Oxford's historic taverns that is worth seeing for its architecture and atmosphere. It dates as an ale house fro the fourteenth century though the front bar dates from the seventeenth century. It is hidden away from the main streets down a...More

Not sure how you could raise a yard-glass in this place unless you're really short or kneel down - but great to come and have a pint in this hallowed place of okker fame!

The Turf is rather a nice pub - if you can find it. The food is fine, the drinks are reasonably priced and there's a large outside dining area. The downsides are that during summer this pub can get very crowded and it can also...More

great experience with food and drinks. Not suitable for rainy day. Normally closes by 11pm. Service is great and ideal venue to meet visitors to Oxford. Got wet on a rainy night. Need some help to locate the place as cannot be seen.
