Eh the place sounds like it would give me a migraine. 'Paid per shoplifter leg trip', ' ‘The Clarendon Centre’ tannoy team of audio bullies' and your answer to the paintball promo guys... Classic. by ladyofflame

Plaice for Piffle
Review of The Kings Arms, Oxford by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Food adequate enough to fill a gap
Disadvantages: Full of students

40 Holywell Street, Oxford, Oxon OX1 3SP - - - By name alone, it is just like any other monarchy titled public house; at first sight it appears ordinary. Thinking it is an ordinary is due to whether you are in fact 'ordinary' - nothing wrong wit ... Read review

I don't think this was called the Head of the River in my day, but it's good to know that Salter's is still Salter's, and I hope you can still hire a punt there. Liked the Fuller word-play. by torr

Quality of 'Quoduce'
Review of Quod, Oxford by 1st2thebar

Advantages: On the doorstep - Fine French Dining - local 'Quoduce'
Disadvantages: Has perfect acoustics for egocentrics and theatrical types

92 / 94 High Street Oxford, OX1 4BN For those of you up on your British slang, you'll be aware the word 'quod' means prison. The Quod Brasserie doesn't resemble a prison nor does it have inhabitants who're aesthetically deemed as stereotypical priso ... Read review

Sounds interesting. John by Coloneljohn
Heh, in London's East End a couple of weeks back I selected a packet of Walkers standard sized crisps at the bar to see them opened and presented in a napkin rounded bowl. Added 40p to the price apparently. Sounds like a nice experience regardless. Long time since I've visited Oxford. by cr01

Love your opening paragraph Shaun :~D 'a cappuccino and a wafer-biscuit' always works well in calming me down :~) Is it only me that thinks how great it would be to have 'trap-doors' readily available to use at a touch of a button to use on anyone that is being incredibly infuriating! Ok then, just a thought! :~) A real great piece of writing here, entertaining throughout. Thanks Shaun :~) xXx by Deesrev
