Marsh Harrier

Marsh Harrier

Known by locals to be the pub to go to, the Marsh Harrier situated in around old Cowley at the south east of Oxford is no nouveau riche when it comes to the hoarding of traditional ales. As one enters, the sights of the thriving garden beckons – patches of shade and sunlight causing the most delightfully disconcerting mosaic pattern that immediately lulls patrons to a more mellow and relaxed frame of mind. Discovering the bust of the bird is an interesting play to the namesake of the pub; one finds the staff quite amicable and present for every beck and call. Sunday roast, quiz nights and live performances add a bit more finesse to the establishment.

The Royal Standard

The Royal Standard

Present at the apex of where New High Street meets London Road in Oxford, the Royal standard is definitely eye-catching, if not for its foundations steeped in Victorian architectural history, for the plentiful crowd which consists more often than not of the staff from the hospitals and business men. Arranged on two levels and attached to a garden in the rear, the pub hosts a billiards table, live music every Saturday and a Guido Sanchez Pub Quiz every Wednesday. Truly, it is worth one’s time to soak in the aura of old-world-Oxford colliding with the new age.

White Hart

White Hart

Known for the Beer festival that they hold annually in the month of either April or May and the handpicked Everards ales they hold, the White Hart has been awarded the Oxford CAMRA city Pub of the Year 2013-2014. The walls steeped in history since the reign of King Henry VI, the White Hart was originally intended to be an accommodation of sorts to the Chantry priest and five almsmen. That soon changed with its charitable repute not excluding it from passing hands to become a public house, a farm house and even a sweet shop. Now, the building stands as it does after extensive renovations to bring it as close to the original and retain the whispers of the distant past. The food is impeccable and the aura of the pub house is not to be missed by anyone in the close radius of Fyfield.
