About the Pub

Not the original St Aldates Tavern, that was at no. 61 which still has its Morland 'Artist' plaque, but there was an inn recorded at this site in 1397. Rebuilt at least once since then, lastly in 1716 as the New Inn - this was a coaching inn in the 18th century. It became the Bulldog in 1965 and then back to St Aldates Tavern in 2005 after a short spell as the Hobgoblin. This friendly pub in the centre of Oxford features up to seven well-kept real ales often with at least two from local breweries. There is an attractive function room upstairs which is available to hire with its own bar and toilet.
