Turf Tavern

The Turf Tavern in Oxford is hidden way and accessed only by two small alleys. However, don’t be tricked by its humble entrance. The Turf Tavern has been around since the 16th century, when it was a local hotspot to discuss politics during the English Civil War.

The Turf Tavern has a beer garden (where you can see a bit of the old city wall!) and a comfortable interior with different rooms. It offers delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere – as most people here will be locals.

Service options: Dine-in · No takeaway · No delivery.

Address: 4 Holywell St, Oxford OX1 3SU.
