Carpeted, with two fires, one by the bar and one in the corner, and 
generally full, especially towards closing time on a Saturday, this is 
probably the best pub in Headington apart from the Butcher's Arms, 
especially since it's opposite the church in the old villagy bit of the 

Closest in spirit to the White Hart at Wytham, but better executed (and 
less far of a walk). Four casks, of which one is a rotated guest. However, 
the next one is, predictably enough, Adnams Broadside. They have fallen 
prey to the one-size-fits-all Bass guest ale policy after being Halls and 
most recently Allied Domecq.

It has a big uphill garden out the back, with benches and a splendid view 
of the stars at night (when they switch the lights off). The service is 
quick, and the bar staff are friendly and helpful every time I've been.

Definitely the place to go in Old Headington. (29.iv.2000)
