The food disappoints. The pub is one of a large chain all sharing the same centrally prepared meals of mediocre quality. The pub is good for a pint but not for eating.

We popped in for a drink and a chat with friends. The service at the bar was good. The white wine was chilled and delightful to drink.

First time back in well over a decade, but the Jericho's still a great pub. While spending the day ambling round the city, it proved a relaxing spot to refresh with beer & bar snacks. Interesting artwork displayed & for sale too.

Description
Welcome to Oxford's favourite pub.Just outside the old city gates in Oxford's historic suburb, you'll find The Jericho Tavern, a bastion of beautiful beers damn fine pub food and upcoming musical talent - so our learned patrons tell us. There's a touch of The Jericho's bohemian spirit about the pub, which is a hub of activity throughout the week and a favourite with film fans of the nearby Phoenix cinema.
