The Turf Tavern


A hidden gem of a pub! Has a unique charm and found by going down St Helens Passage !

This spot is slightly tuck away , but when you follow the signs down the cobblestone alleyway, you'll soon see the quaint little patio and restaurant.  Stop here for some beer and snacks during a stroll through the town.  Its good food and the setting is a real winner.  The patio is neat  with pretty flowers everywhere. You will get  surrounded by tables of students reading poetry and professors debating...something intelligent.  

All in all its  famous Oxford pub that’s worth a scoop at on your way to Iffley Stadium!.  You will be glad  you called in .
