Pub crawl in Oxford


Oxford has a number of great pubs, and the city actually has a map of (almost) all of them! So when I studied in Oxford 4 years ago, a couple of classmates and I decided to go to every pub on the map during the year we were there. And that’s 62 pubs! We had to drink a pint at each pub, and then we would colour the pub on the map. It has to be said that not all pubs where too easy to find, so I walked around with a street map while pub crawling. So one could say I was real persistent to win this competition. And I did!
If you’re going to Oxford, this is a fantastic way to get to know the city! And of course it helps if you like beer:-)

The Bear


This cosy, little pub is one of the oldest pubs in Oxford. I was here several times while I studied in Oxford, and found it to be a place I had to show my friends and family. It is a small pub, but that is what’s so great about it! I think pubs should be small and cosy, instead of these huge football pubs, however they of course need their size. The thing that’s so special about The Bear, is that the walls and ceiling are covered with ties. The story has it that customers left their ties in exchange for a pint. That seems like a good deal to me!
