Fin (557) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | July 1, 2012
We visited here Sunday 1st July 2012, after cycling to Kidlington, Woodstock through Glympton and then onto here before Caulcott, Kirtlington, Bletchingdon, Islip and back home, longest ride we’ve done for a while about 36 miles in total I believe and this pub along with the Black Prince in Woodstock were welcome breaks from the occasional showers. A friendly welcome in this bustling pub with five beers available including local options such as XT8 and Hooky Bitter I had the former Loz had a Betty Stoggs both in excellent condition. This pub has recently won North Oxon branch pub of the year 2012 which doesn’t surprise me. The food also looked very decent. I think this is likely to pop up again on another long bike ride.
