The Jericho Tavern | Oxford

The last I was in Oxford long time ago, was more as a tourist. And both times, it rained really heavily so I never got to see much. Now that circumstances have changed and that I will be visiting Oxford a lot more often, it's time for me to get to know this historical city and explore it like I did when I first moved to London.

 Yes, it was taken upside down. You should have seen M's photography back arch yoga stunt!

Above is a few touristy shots of the beautiful Oxford and below is my first find, The Jericho Tavern, a pub and music venue which we came across by accident.

The exterior of Jericho Tavern

There's also a heated beer garden at the back, with lit fairy lights covering the wall. It's well romantic for a date.

There is also a good selection of real ales, lager and cider. I was well pleased with the smooth and mellow Innis & Gunn hand-crafted Scottish beer with hints of toffee and vanilla oak. If you know me, I am not much of a beer drinker but this, I really like.

A little friendly touch, written on one of their boards:

"Our staff love their drinks and will be happy to help you pick out your perfect potion! xxx"

Handmade British Cheese Burger with additional BBQ pulled pork with paprika mayo and fries

Doesn't that look appetizing! It was one good burger even though the beef patty itself was slightly dry. I was lucky I ordered the burger with additional BBQ pulled pork as it was the highlight. The pulled pork was so tender with smoky sweetness from the BBQ sauce. The mayo was a good addition too.  

Salmon with mash potatoes and broccoli


Quite a calm space for drinks and catch up in the day time and gets busy at night.


Nothing much to frown about except for the slightly dry burger and non-crispy salmon skin.

Will I return?
