    Bar
    Stylish in a clean, chain bar kind of way. Large enough to mean there is nearly always somewhere to sit down. Former premises of Russell Acott - instruments and sheet music sales, 1894-1999 - as the tiled mosaic on the doorway floor testifies.

  • Cowley Road Area
    Pub
    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. Does not accept cards.

    Pub
    April 2013 - we are informed the pub does not have Arms in its title, even according to its pub certification! Friendly nook-and-cranny-filled pub known for its real ale and boardgames. Also the base for 'What a Load of Crepes' catering company.
