We have visited this a few times now since Bath Ales took over with mixed results. It had always been the Theatre pub and used to have posters all over the walls, these have gone now. The one constant is that it is always very popular and quite difficult to get served in the tight bar area. The seating is comfortable and plenty even if sharing with diners. I am not over enamoured with the beer range, they could do with a guest offering I believe. It is however a good addition to the Oxford scene, so worth a look.
Ever improving since my last review. The guest beers, both cask and keg are becoming more prominent and interesting. Quickly becoming a favourite.

This place is lovely: Pie and Pints on Friday 22nd Nov 2013. I like Bath Ales and I like Pies, so it was a marriage made in heaven for me. They had some interesting guests on too: Beerd Monterey and Animal Mioung from XL Brewing to name the ones I tried.
Good vibes from the start in this very busy city centre pub, luckily my son-in-law had booked a table for us to eat at, otherwise we’d not have gotten a seat.
Met a chap who recognized me from Belgium while in here: small world isn’t it?

I have been in this pub many times over the years however for quite some time it has been something of a disappointment. However now it is certainly much improved with 8 handpumps on all serving Bath beers, and whilst this seems quite a choice I recall at least 2 of these were repeats. We went here Friday 14th September 2011, I had a Bath Summers Hare which was pretty good. Bath ales never usually jump out at me, much like Vale, Hooky etc however they are usually pretty decent and this one was no exception. It was fairly quite when we were there approx 9:30-10pm but I guess it will steadily start to pick up. This street of all streets in Oxford is crying out for a place to get a dependable pint of real ale and with a JDW (not to everyone’s taste admittedly) and now this, things are starting to look up.
