We had a couple of drinks and a meal here on our first night the food was good and they had a selection of beers. The only thing i would say is that due to the location it is a bit expensive.

There is a standard selection of drinks to choose from. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The prices are very reasonable. A nice spot to watch the world go by

Not a bad bar really, but just a little rundown. Students from the adjacent Uni were bringing their own glasses of wine in, bit odd as a practice. We had chairs put up around us at 9:40pm, extremely rude. It stopped us buying another bottle...More

We eat here everytime we are in Melbourne. The service is very friendly, with a laid back atmosphere. Meals are always delicious and have never waited long. Prices are competitive for Melbourne City.

We went for one of their steak specials. The service was good, nice atmosphere, the Steak was excellent. The bar was quiet the night we went but when we passed it at lunchtime it was humming !! If you're staying in the area it's well...More

The amount of pubs you can visit in Melbourne CBD and be served that hard to swallow tepid beer with the old excuse, "it's just the tap hasn't been used for a while". Go fetch! The Oxford has been serving cold beer and quality parmies...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Opposite RMIT, The Oxford Scholar is popular with after-work types as much as the student body, opening for lunch and dinner with fabulous pub meals. Open from Monday to Friday 10am to late, and stocked with a wide range of wines, beers on tap and spirits, the Scholar is a great place for a get-together. Catering for all patrons and providing reasonably-priced quality dining, the Scholar provides an open, friendly atmosphere for a broad clientele. Located at the Sussex-end of Swanston Street, this pub proudly harbours the atmosphere of suburban local right in the heart of the city. As evening sets in, the bistro menu offers a few cheap meals to down before you hit the pool table. You can even get a group of mates together and start a pool team. Naturally, the booze selection at the Ox is slanted towards the beer end of the scale. Cocktails can be had at more sophisticated venues down the road; this is a beer man’s pub. Tap and bottled offerings include James Squire Amber and Golden Ales, Tooheys Old, Boags Classin Blonde, Becks and many more. And you’ll want a good amount of beer to go with all that sport. League, Union, Soccer and AFL all get their day in the sun, with the odd meat raffle thrown in for good measure.
