This is on the far side of Boars Hill from Oxford where it descends 
towards the villages of St Helen Without. The pub itself is on the south 
side of Boars Hill and on a slight slope up towards the main road. They do 
food at the times advertised above (which I haven't tried), and they 
generally have three ales on: Greenalls Original, Tetley's, and a guest. 
It was Umbel Ale in May, interesting stuff with a coriander aftertaste.

The back garden slopes away dramatically and is dominated by a maypole, 
surrounded by benches, Greenalls umbrellas, arbours and a pergola 
decorated with a few straggly clematis. There's a non-specific Greek bust 
down the bottom.

It's decorated inside with the usual pub tat: blackboards with the menus 
on, a history of Boars Hill in squiggly handwriting, and several twee 
malpunctuated slogans, like "She was a good cook, as cook's go, and as 
cook's go, she went." There's a vending machine for disposable nappies in 
the Ladies, apparently. Fifteen degrees. (22.v.1998)
