Proprietor: Brookton Simmons - Manager
Features: We are Hook Norton Brewery’s first Oxford City Centre pub offering a wide range of craft & cask beer. We have a weekly entertainment schedule including live Music, meet the brewers and Comedy nights.
The pub dates back to 1892 (almost as old as Hook Norton Brewery itself – 1849) and was constructed to designs by HGW Drinkwater in a distinctive mock – Tudor style with tall red brick chimney stacks. It was almost lost forever in the 1960’s with the development of the original Westgate Centre leading to the loss of many historical building in the area.
Ironically, the current re-development of the Westgate Centre was one of the things that attracted Hook Norton to the pub. That, and the chance to have for the first time in its history a Hooky pub within Oxford city itself.
There will always be a warm welcome with superbly kept Hook Norton Real Ales along with an extensive range of craft beers, some of which include our Cotswold pale, Playing Hooky, Red Rye and Mersula stout. They also stock a variety of wine, spirits, cider and lager.
An extensive lunch and dinner menu is also available 7 days a week.
Available for private hire, Parties & functions.
