The Bird Cage (Courage)
4 Cornmarket, Thame, OX9 3DX. Tel. (01844) 260381 This wouldn't be a bad 
place to sit outside on a warm summer afternoon. It has benches on the 
forecourt (Cornmarket interrupting one of the longest High Streets in 
England), is a timber-built building old enough to be crooked and bendy, 
with a piscina in one side of the chimney breast, and an excellent pub dog 
called Scully (presumably after Dana rather than Hugh).

Unfortunately it has NO REAL ALE, though it has two sorts of carbonated 
cider (Woodpecker and Dry Blackthorn). We saw the barmaid again later on 
in The Market Square round the corner. (23.viii.1999)
