About the Pub

One of the most famous pubs in Oxford, and yet one of the most difficult to find - stand under the Bridge of Sighs and you’ll see the sign. In all the guide books so popular with tourists. It’s not actually as old as it looks (it dates from the end of the 18th century), nor is it as old as the city wall that bounds the garden to the south. There are several rooms with two bars and 8 hand pumps in total although most of them double up. Outdoor seating is in the walled garden area and a small patio area outside the front door, heated by braziers in winter. Features in Thomas Hardy's novel 'Jude the Obscure' as 'an obscure and low-beamed tavern' which he renamed the Lamb & Flag.

Historic Interest

Claims to have been frequented by many famous figures, both real (Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, CS Lewis) and fictional (Inspector Morse).
