10:30 Yet another plan ruined by railway infrastructure failure meant an arrival at Oxford two hours earlier than planned. Luckily my chum had also arrived early so a crawl ensued. My first visit here, busy with breakfasters. The bar back was being refitted and I was surprised to see that the mirrors are merely glued in place.
Batemans - Cervecería Fort Barcelona Pale Ale5.00GoodIf only Bateman's own beers were as good as these contract brews.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried
Grainstore - Ten Fifty (1050)5.00Not Tried
