Short visit so wanted to try a B&B here. This one is conveniently located and within walking distance of everything. However, it IS a bar and gets very loud in the evening. The accommodations are ok. I had a small room with low angled ceilings and a bathroom with a shower. It was very clean and neat. I didn't try...

Nice old place near to the city center. The staff is really nice and helpful and the breakfast is surprisingly good and have a adequate choice if you see it is not a hotel "just" a small inn. We had a family visit two adult a small kid and it was great fun.

Visited on Saturday with a group of friends to watch the rugby . Not as busy as it previous visits but still a good crowd . Shame they didn't gave any hand pulled beer . Bar snacks quite limited though so eat before hand

I have stayed here several times but not since my son graduated a few years ago. All seemed to be fine this time as well until I returned from dinner to find a party going on in the bar under my room. I expected the party to stop at 2300, but it was still going strong at 1200, so I...

Lovely old coaching inn with plenty of character. If you are tall like me, you will need to watch your head throughout the place. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was really nice. Room was clean. Location is great, just a few minutes walk from the town centre. The road outside is quite busy so can be noisy...

We did have a problem when we showed up early, hoping to leave our luggage there while we went around town, because it was locked and there was nobody there. However, when we showed up at the normal check-in time there was someone there who was very nice. The ground floor is a tavern which is a mix of quaint...

We arrived a little early and were unable to get into the car park or speak to anyone by telephone (the pub was locked and closed) so parked elsewhere and returned later. In its favour is convenience for Oxford City Centre, about 10 minutes walk, free parking and it being an attractive, quirky old building. It was also clean and...

Situated at the town end of St Clements . Quite a small pub but with many televisions means a great atmosphere is achieve easily . Good range of beer although a bit more expensive than others . Food range a bit limited and given the tiny size of the sausage rolls they serve perhaps eating before visiting is the best...

The most advantageous reason to stay here is the proximity to the university and the parking lot in the back. We extended our visit by one day and were obliged to change rooms. The first room we stayed in with two twin beds was directly above the pub, so it was pretty noisy on the weekend until 11 pm. The...
