The Royal Blenheim is a proper pub with a great selection of real ales and good pub grub. We had fish and chips and scampi and chips with minted mushy peas. So good! Homemade chips and really fresh fish in lovely light crispy batter. Relaxed...More

I stopped by at lunch time. There was a good selection of draft ales. Food menu was limited due to the very recent renovation, but the burger was tasty. Very friendly personnel.

Visited as recommended by my good friend Larry the Loafer. The bar was clean, superb array of ales. Jane & Mike run a tight ship with good food, courtesy & friendly bar staff. Quiz night is Wednesday - a fine evening out.

We are a traditional street corner pub from the Victorian era. Inside we have 10 handpulls serving a wide range of well kept local and regional beers, including the White Horse Brewery (Oxfordshire) for which the Royal Blenheim is the brewery tap - the only one of its kind in the city Oxford. With BT Sport available on up to four screens we will be showing a variety of sports with a focus on rugby...possibly the best place in Oxford for a rugger get together! We have a Facebook page which we would encourage you to 'like' as that is one of the best ways of staying up to date on what we have going on here. We believe in making and cooking proper homemade food with a focus on fresh ingredients, mostly sourced from the Covered Market and other local suppliers. Our menus will be seasonal with an aim to use 'in season' ingredients to create simple yet wholesome dishes. As well as a weekly Wednesday Quiz Night (come early to get a a table) we hope to stage regular Open Mic nights as a showcase for local musicians of all styles and levels...If that's you please get in touch with us, thanks.
