About The Parakeet (formerly The Oxford Tavern; The Oxford)

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Kentish Town, Greater London, NW5 2AA.

Located in Kentish Town Road. A Victorian pub that combines old traditions with modern style. Ornate wall lights and old wooden furniture contrast sharply with the stainless steel of the open plan kitchen in the middle of the pub. Metropolitan Pub Co. is a Greene King pub brand. Sold by Greene King to West Berkshire Brewery in early 2018 and closed for a refurbishment. Since re-opened. Closed and now quite who owns it is uncertain. Talk is of re-opening in early 2023 with new name Parakeet and indeed did open in March 2023 with that new epithet run by the Columbo Group.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 5 different beers and tried 2 of them.
