Everything an English pub should be, welcoming, buzzing, well kept ales and a ploughmans to die for. A lovely place to go.

A very nice place to some pints in the city centre. Cotleigh 25 4,0% was my choice (20.6.2009).

One of my favorite places to drink, and I still haven't tried all of the Youngs beers. There is usually a guest (it has been Archers in recent times) but with beers like the Double Chocolate Stout, I haven't usually opted for that. Unusually complete range of bottles, such as Lords. The food is decent and pretty reliable, and you can bring kids into the non-smoking family room, which makes this a particularly inviting place for tourists and for Sunday afternoon when you don't want to end up smelling like an ashtray.

Been here a few times in the last 3 years or so. Very handily situated when visiting friends at the more central colleges. A popular pub with fellow students which I could see as irritating to some!

Packed with students, but service was still pretty good. Large-ish range of beers. Decent food. OK place smack in the middle of the university.

Not very busy, quite comfortable as most people were outside. Beer quality good the St Austell Tribute on top form.
Did not have any food so could not rate.

Spacious and comprehensive Youngs pub with different rooms, one for billiard and one library for a quiet retreat, among others. Eight on cask, including two guest ales (from Hidden and St. Austell in mid-March). Located at the very end of Broad Street right between White Horse and Turf Tavern – very short walking distance if you find yourselves on a pub crawl. The toilets were found alright, and I had a really good time here during my visit on 16th March 08.

Visited in June 2014. Very friendly staff that played allong in our jokes. The selection wasn’t as interesting as other pubs since we get most of these beers in Sweden. But I found a couple of new beers. High ceiliing and allot of people even early in the day.

Big, popular and crowded pub. At least it was on Friday night. Mostly Young’s on 8 casks.

A multi-roomed Young’s pub, popular with students.
The King’s Arms sits in a Georgian building at a busy corner in the centre of Oxford. It’s multi-roomed, light and airy and quite studenty (one of the colleges apparently has a room upstairs), with a smaller locals’ type bar at one side. It’s a little threadbare and frayed at the edges but has a comfortable, lived in feel.
They serve meals and snacks which weren’t great but did the trick. We had pork pies which were taken from the fridge (where I imaging they had been defrosting) already on a plate and wrapped in cling film.
