We tend to get to The Jericho 4-5 times a year, primarily for the music which is hosted upstairs. Our most recent visit on Wednesday 14th May 2014 with John (work colleague) saw us go to see Ezra Furman (great gig) however amongst the usual none too exciting beer range was spotted Tiny Rebel, Beavertown and Siren all in bottle and at £4.25 - £4.75 for the likes of 8 Ball, Undercurrent etc not too badly priced. The Jericho is situated in North Oxford an 8-10 minute walk from the centre I guess, you will find it just beyond the Jude the Obscure and virtually next door to the independant cinema. It is quite roomy inside, the bar is directly in front if you and the pub opens out to the left where more people tend to sit whilst eating though you can just sit at one of these places to drink also. We went out into the back garden, which you acess by walking to the left of the bar turn right when past and you’ll see the door ahead near the stairs. I was surprised at the amount of seating out here and despite being all hard standing it was very pleasant sat out here. A new manager whom we chatted to for a while seemed very keen on the fledgling bottled range. A great music venue getting better on the beer front.
