tbc Missing the homeland, or just after an old-fashioned pint at old-fashioned prices (& perhaps a game of darts)? Then the Swan, Irish to the hilt & then some (especially when it comes to the jukebox & the decor - hurling & horseracing posters), is for you. Opposite the Crown House, east Oxford's Irish social club (see Shamrock bar, below), the Swan is not for the faint-hearted - but once adopted by the publicans, you'll find it warm and friendly. No

Merton's Bar
73 High Street
01865 249065
Mon-Sat 11am-2am,
Sun 11am-11pm
Restaurant & late bar. Probably due to its location (in a small nightspot desert between the start of east Oxford and the end of the town centre), queues at the weekend are a certainty, as is an entrance fee. Drinks are expensive and service slow. However, on balance, it is a remarkably civilised place to procure a late night drink, especially if you can bag the sofa. tbc
