About the Pub

Something of an Oxford institution, the KA has been here since 1607, the king in question being James l. It’s owned by Wadham College, whose students live on the upper floors. There are six rooms, including a dining room at the front; the pub is usually very busy, but the quieter and most atmospheric areas are the panelled back bar and the “office”, with its real fire and leather sofas, behind. The only outside seating is a number of picnic tables on the pavement at the front.
