Pubs and barsWed 17 May 2017

The Royal Oak, just across the road from the venue, is very good. But it’s not very big, so if you all go there it will be a very tight squeeze. I suggest instead that you spread yourselves out among the following hostelries.

On the rivers

These two pubs are a lovely walk away, across Port Meadow. The Perch is in Binsey, near the south end of the meadow, and The Trout in Godstow at the north end, both close to the River Thames.

You can hire a punt from the Cherwell Boathouse, and punt about 45 minutes upstream to the Victoria Arms on the Cherwell. If you don’t want to punt, and the weather is dry (so the ground is not too muddy), you could also walk up the east side of the river: go through the University Parks, cross Rainbow Bridge, and turn left along the riverbank; cross Marston Ferry Road with care, and continue another 100m along the footpath on the other side. Note that the Parks close at dusk.

All three of these pubs also serve good food.
