The Crown Cornmarket

Locals and tourists alike will be found propping up the bar in this beautifully furnished pub. Being so close to the high street, Oxford University and Sheldonion Theatre, there's always a lively atmosphere brewing in The Crown Cornmarket.

The Chequers Inn

The Chequers Inn is one of the oldest pubs in Oxford and still has interior features dating back to the 1500s. With the station just round the corner, this is the perfect place for munching on pub classics like fish and chips after you step off the train.

Bear Inn

Bear Inn was the very first boozer to be built in the city, so naturally it is proudly one of the most famous pubs in Oxford. Make a beeline for this historic venue and experience the charming low ceilings while sampling its fine selection of ales.
