Low ceilings. Wooden floors. Many little rooms. Classic! Menu is not varied but what they have is carefully and quickly prepared. Outdoor backyard is wonderful spot. Covered so can sit outside in rain.

This is a pub where there is a decent selection of ales, no background music, a really lovely garden, the barmen wears a tie, and the food is reasonably priced and good value. George Orwell would probably be quite happy with this place. I've been...More

Hello I just wanted to ask how it looks with parking spaces during the weekend near to the pub as we want to come down with a couple of cars.

Usually a cpl of spaces on the street itself, if not try non-residential bays on Winchester and Canterbury roads. 👍

In Oxford you'll find a warm welcome at the Rose and Crown (built in 1863). Run by Deborah and Andrew for 30years, the award winning pub is popular with students, locals and tourists of all ages and interests. The bar stocks a range of traditional English bitter on handpump, as well as good wines, malt whiskies, Belgian bottled beers and lager. The menu offers a selection of hot and cold meals, freshly made sandwiches and light snacks. The traditional interior is simply styled with a cosy, characterful atmosphere and to the rear a vine-draped, heated and covered courtyard. Close to the town centre. Recommendations include The Good Pub Guide, The Good Beer Guide, The Quiet Pint.
