The burgers here are great - possibly the best in town. The pizza is consistently below average - the dough is all wrong - soft, chewy, bland. It is also a dog-friendly pub. Personally, I don't like other people's dogs near my food. Often these...More

Ain't nothing rickety about this place. My favourite pub in Oxford, and luckily also just a couple minutes walk from my house.

Recently received a place in the good food guide 2013 after only 18 months. Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way.Propped up a stones throw from the city center, the Rickety Press has fast become one of the go too foodie destinations in Oxford. Boasting a menu packed with locally sourced ingredients and top-notch suppliers, their kitchen has planted its refined, yet simple offering firmly on the map; whatever the Kitchen decides to cook, you can rest assured the dishes will be super tasty and highly accessible. Established favorites include its superb sharing steaks & their homemade made ice-creams set alongside an ever-changing choice of seasonal dishes. Behind the bar you will also find a refreshing variety of craft beers, cask marked ales, considered wines and house cocktails, drafted into a drinks list offering the perfect choice of tipples for every stage of your meal.
