10 Best Pubs in Oxford

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are very fortunate, because of our history, to have a variety of old English pubs that you can visit to get an insight of history and culture. To determine the top best pubs in Oxford was really tough and challenging as there are so many wonderful outlets. Some of the Landlords have been working in the outlets for generations.  Some of the pubs that are near our apartments which we recommend, are as follows:

  1. The Turf Tavern https://www.greeneking-pubs.co.uk/pubs/oxfordshire/turf-tavern/ Turf Tavern has opened its doors to serve ales and appetisers to England’s ford Serviced Apartments Opened its doors in 1831 and has a resident ghost!

The White Hart of Wytham – a country mile from Oxford city centre – has been under new management since January 2015. In the past 3 months we’re extremely proud and grateful to have received three awards & nominations for our food from The Oxford Times, Bitten Oxford and Wadworth Brewery.  We are family and dog friendly, and boast two dining rooms, large bar area, conservatory, a beautiful secluded courtyard, outdoor bar, a renovated Georgian stable party room and one of the largest of car parks!
