Perhaps the last great small pub in Oxford . Tiny in comparison to others but always a great atmosphere with friendly staff . Range of drinks limited by the space available to serve them .

Visited last weekend with friends who wanted a traditional pub type experience . It is very much a traditional pub with great banter between the regulars and new visitors . Cassia who was running it kept everyone happy and created the great atmosphere .
