Banbury Road Area
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!
