Synopsis

Oxford is famous for offering an 'Education in Intoxication'. The city's historic and picturesque pubs have been frequented by countless visitors, ranging from local students to movie stars such as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Home to some of the finest ales in Britain, Oxford is a must for any connoisseur of ale or fan of the traditional English pub. From the famous riverside to the outskirts of the city centre, the author provides an indispensable guide to Oxford's pubs. The book is filled with fascinating stories and photographs that illustrate why these establishments deserve to be on all discerning drinkers' must-visit lists. For instance, did you know some of Oxford's pubs were once home to exotic animals, perhaps most bizarrely a shark? It is easy to be overwhelmed by the vast choice, but from the watering hole of 'The Inklings' to the set of Inspector Morse, Dave Richardson proves that these traditional and welcoming pubs have something to suit any need.
