Oxford's oldest pub set in its own, quiet location.
The Bear is Oxford’s oldest pub that dates back to 1242 and is well worth a visit even if it is just purely for a drink. The pub area is adorned with ties of the colleges of Oxford that go back centuries and is a good box to tick if in the area. Sadly the food revealed things that I would not recommend based on the two dishes I had, but maybe you will be lucky with others chosen. My homemade soup was fine but served with slice, supermarket bread (and side of olive oil) and the fish goujons were overcooked with barely any fish inside towards the ends (that which was left in was tough and pretty tasteless). A bit of a shame on the food front, but hopefully there are some other dishes that would be better and is generally a very nice place to visit for drinks which I would recommend.
