155. Oxford, Oxford Road

The first in a stretch of unappealing new-build student pubs along Oxford Road, this former Hogshead wasn't that bad in terms of ale on offer.  Four hand-pulls were on, and even if the selection was a bit uninspiring, the ale wasn't in bad nick.  It's a Stonegate pub company house, with faux 'ye olde' decor within.

As would be expected, The Oxford attracts mainly students due to the reasonable prices - £2.19 for the dull Bombardier and £6.95 for two pub meals.  So, there's nothing inspiring about this one, but nothing too wrong with what they're doing.  Think I'd have preferred the original Oxford though, down the road.

  1. Was here on the opening night. Wasn't a bad Hogshead with an-for then, interesting range of beers on. I remember people were impressed because it has an upstairs!
