Nice pub, quite full when I visited, decent cask range and bottle menu, quite expensive. Good (if youíve got enough money)

A good pub with an interesting range of beer, including some unusual (at least for me) beers for the area. I had a beer from Hop Kettle and it was in good nick.

Visited in June 2014. Nice place that is divided into an older more rustic part and a modern part with high ceiling. They had a bunch of microbrewed real ales that where really nice. Actually ended up staying longer then expected and trying them all out.

We tend to visit here reasonably frequently possibly more so than The Eagle and Child across the road. I have to say I am often underwhelmed by the beer selection, though I know if you hit it just right you can find some corking beers on cask. The pub is situated on St Giles a large tree lined very wide road that would be called a boulevard abroad, this sits just to the north of the centre. You will find this pub and indeed the Eagle and Child roughly about halfway along. As you enter there is a bar area in front in a nice panelled room, if however this is busy continue down into the pub to find the main bar, I tend to find it a little darker and gloomier in here, though I guess in winter with the fire roaring away it works a treat, I also find this room and ones leading off not as nice as the front street view bar. There is usually a selection of beers on handpump as mentioned not always exciting but occasionally you may hit lucky. However there is also a fairly decent Belgian bottled list, ok so they offer many of the usual suspects but it is nice to get Rochefort and Orval even if the prices might make you do a double take. Staff and service are always good and I guess the pub has plenty of character, a great choice on a pubcrawl of Oxford.

I highly recommend this place, if for nothing else, its literary historical legacy. This is located just off the picturesque Oxford University campus and offers you quaint wood paneled walls, low ceilings, and a large fireplace. There are cask ales too. This is a worthy stop for a beer and a read.

1st Pub on what turned out to be a long and most enjoyable Pub Crawl around Oxford on 23rd Nov 2013. Olde Worlde feel to this place and just lovely. We sat in the back bar, the front being full of people eating, or so it seemed. Good selection of Cask Ales and glass fronted fridges with a choice of International bottles. Actually the women all had a little bottle of Prosecco each while I had a beer from Slaters (a surprise to see one in Oxford), the barman saying they had their beers on a regular basis. My son-in-law had a bottled De Koninck in a Bollika and my son some lager or other! A huge party of well dressed country chaps (tweeds, Barbour jackets, etc, etc) came in while we were there and we bumped into them on and off all day as we both did our crawls. This is on everyones circuit it would seem.

Number 6 on the Oxford Centre Pub crawl and a good walk from No. 5. This is a Free House owned by St. Johns College and hence frequented by the dreaded Students, though they are generally harmless. This is a rare, particularly for this part of the country, outlet for Skinners beers and also a regular Palmers. Always an interesting choice on tap, the beers are always top notch. There has been a long term connection with literary matters in this pub, from Tolkein (very topical at this time), through CS Lewis to another Morse story, although these are also shared with the pub opposite, a bit of a boozy lot these writing folk! i think in all of Oxford, this is my long time favourite pub, I have been going there for 20 years or more!
Update Dec í12 - This remains a studenty pub, but also a good mix of people. Always pretty busy, the beer remains pretty good mostly with changing guest beers> Iím still happy with my previous rating which isnít bad after 8 yrs. Always worth a visit.

A nice and cozy place with good real ales. Palmerís Lamb & Flag Gold 4,5% was the special one (19.6.2009).

Boudicca  (1035) London, England | February 22, 2012
A rambling, lively pub with a reasonable beer selection. The Lamb and Flag is almost opposite the Eagle and Child on a wide two lane road leading north out of Oxford. Thereís a traditional, homely bar in the middle, sandwiched between a relatively modern light wood panelled room at the front (also with a bar) and more rooms at the back, one of which was completely deserted. There was a mix of clientele - town and gown in equal measure Ė and it was quite lively early on a Saturday evening. Apparently itís owned by St Johnís College, which has also run it as a free house since 1999 and the profits from the pub go towards a post graduate scholarship fund. (Visited 7 January 2012).

Quite big but still packed with students on Friday night. Hot and humid. Rather interesting beers in casks.
