    Default Oxford, summer 2016

    So just back at hotel after enjoyable Hull pub crawl, time to start arranging the summer 2016 crawl in Oxford. Does anyone have any thoughts on dates? Early July maybe?

    Evening Dave. Hope you chaps had a good time up in Hull. As an Oxfordshire native, I'd be rude of me not to make an appearance and put some faces to usernames. July's looking good for me, so will work around the consensus if you can accommodate a 'newbie'. Cheers, KK.

    I couldn't make Saturday July 2nd but all other Saturdays around that time would be fine.

    Time to bump this as we need a date fixed for those who want to get mega-advance tickets. Reading above, the 2nd isn't preferred - how about 9/16/23?

    Also, have been thinking about a route/list

    Meet point:
    The Four Candles (JD Wetherspoon) (53 George Street, OX1 2BE)

    then to
    Beerd Oxford (7 George Street, OX1 2AT)
    The Eagle & Child (49 St Giles, OX1 3LU)

    Now potentially we can add some shoe leather and do
    The Gardeners Arms (39 Plantation Road, OX2 6JE)
    The Rose & Crown (14 North Parade Avenue, OX2 6LX)

    then back to (or just go straight from the E&C) to
    Lamb & Flag (12 St. Giles, OX1 3JS)
    White Horse (52 Broad Street, OX1 3BB) - a small place, so may be a squeeze!
    The Kings Arms (40 Holywell Street, OX1 3SB)
    Turf Tavern (5 Bath Place, OX1 3SU)
    The Bear (6 Alfred Street, OX1 4EH)
    St Aldates Tavern (108 St Aldates, OX1 1BU)
    JOKER The Chequers (131 High Street, OX1 4DH)
    JOKER The Crown (59A Cornmarket Street, OX1 3HB)
    The Royal Blenheim (13 St Ebbes Street, OX1 1PT)
    JOKER: The Swan & Castle (JD Wetherspoon) (Castle Street, OX1 1AY)

    End point/station pub
    The Kite (69 Mill Street, OX2 0AL)

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the route Quinno.

    Frustratingly the only Saturday around that time I can do is the 2nd. Are we definitely going for a Saturday?

    Worth another bump. With the poll closed it appears the most popular date is Friday July 22nd.

    I also thought this route from Quinno was very good ,nothing wrong using a bit of shoe leather.

    OK, I can easily skip the 'Spoons, especially as there's a fair chance I'll be on the later train. But if there's one thing I can't stand, it's a pub that prices its beers in 2/3rds of a pint. Is it ok if I bring along my "Johnson machine gun and a carload of exploding balls". Or should I just calm down a little? (Thinks: Half is three-quarters of two-thirds, so just take a quarter off the display price and that's how much a half costs. Simple.)

    Yes, looks interesting - thanks for putting it together - though some of the reviews are getting a little old. Come on, Quinno, get those skates on!

    Assuming I don't get arrested after Beerd, and avoiding the two 'Spoons, that leaves me with 14 pubs. Not exactly a Winfield, but certainly a bit of a challenge to my ancient liver. (Those who like their 'Spoons but prefer to conserve shoe leather will be looking at 13, unless they duck all the jokers, which leaves a modest 10.)

    I agree with Nev that the diversion into Jericho looks like a good idea. As a near-stranger to Oxford, what might also interest me would be any other out-of-the-way-locals as an alternative to what may turn out to be busy-tourist-honey-pots on a sunny July afternoon (for example this and this).

    Anyone?

    Made a last minute decision to jump on the train to Oxford, just me today though as Tammy is busy working. See you all soon!
