About the Pub

Another famous old Oxford pub, squeezed in between the two entrances to the Norrington Room of Blackwell’s bookshop, and opposite the Sheldonian Theatre. Dating from the 16th century and Grade II listed (though it has been modified over time), it justiably claims to be Oxford’s smallest pub. There are a couple of seats outside for smokers, and the entrance to the pub is down three steps into a low, narrow room, with panelled walls, a long bar, and pictures of old University sporting teams. At the rear is a tiny snug, a raised area with one large table. The size of the pub means it doesn’t take many people to fill it, and it always seems to be busy. Famous for its role in the Morse series, it was also frequented by Winston Churchill and Bill Clinton.
