The Inklings also met at this pub for literary criticism of their works. A must stop on the Oxford pilgrimage. The selection of ales and beers on tap was good and the salads were good. The husband had the ploughman's and found it very adequate.

We just stop in our way back thinking in something quick to continue our journey and the lamb and flag was there, nice Sunday roast, and quick serving. Good choice!

I popped in here on a busy Saturday night and the pub was a welcome place after a days shopping. The mood is snug and warm, the beer fantastic and the bar staff are excellent.

Inexpensive drinks, good drinks, non-pushy and lovely bartender. Great location. Great place to meet with friends.
