    Pub
    Pleasant, old-fashioned venue with good food at reasonable prices (hence lots of business lunchers to be spotted). Lots of interior nooks and crannies supplemented by a heated & covered all-year-round courtyard, popular (and leafy, Mediterranean-feeling, and uncovered) in summer. The 'cottage' at the end of the garden is available for hire for meetings etc. The landlord is as welcoming as ever, and this is definitely a traditional pub with a traditional landlord - one of the most traditional you will possibly find, in fact. They serve pub food including pies and Sunday roasts - it's a pub that serves food, not a gastropub. You can even take a walk through the pub on Google Street View!

    Ivy-covered walls, Cotswold-stone, weeping willows and right on the banks of the Thames, the 16th century Rose Revived is one of our outstanding properties. With just seven select bedrooms to choose from you’re sure of a quiet stay. All cosy and welcoming, some have delightful river views. Enjoy a cask ale in front of a roaring log fire in the winter, and the sun on your face on the riverbank in our lovely garden during summer.

  • Cowley Road Area
    Pub
    Smallish pub with charm, refurbished & reinvented in 2009. Sandwiches served all day. The bicycle hanging up outside is disappointingly free of rust, but perhaps this is the landlord's declaration that he intends the pub to be around for a while. Delivery available through Deliveroo.

  • Headington
    Pub
    The Six Bells at 3 Beaumont Road in Headington Quarry was originally a private house and dates in part from 1782. It was a pub by the early nineteenth century, and was named after the six bells of St Andrew's Church (its parish until 1849). It was a free house in 1882 when Morrells Brewery (who had previously supplied the beer) bought it. When Morrell's Brewery closed in 1998 it became a Greene King pub.

    Situated alongside the attractive Windrush River and very much at the heart of the local village community in Swinbrook, The Swan has a rich history associated with it. The Inn is owned by the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire’s estate, the last of Mitford sisters, and – along with the neighbouring cottage – forms the residual part of the estate inherited by the family at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Photographs around the pub celebrate the connections to the Mitfords and village life.
