Turl Street, Oxford

This is a peculiar offshoot of the Mitre on the High Street, and I think
it's fairly recent.
It's at the far end of a courtyard off hairdresser/old book/cobbler-smelling
Turl Street, and unsettlingly like a college bar or beercellar. Brightly
lit, it has a snooker table and a video jukebox. For a long time, my
review stated that it's covered in stripped pine panelling. It may give
this impression, but there's a lot of stained wood and the ceilings are
white with dark rafters and the college coats of arms hanging off them. I
think I spent too long staring at the floor.
The real ales are not much to speak of, chilled Boddingtons, and Marstons
Pedigree and a not very impressive Wadworth 6X. To be fair, the last 6X I
had was vinegary, so they took it back and gave me a Boddingtons in
No real ale.
