17-18 Victor Street, Jericho, OXFORD, OX2 6BT
Built in 1869 for workers from Oxford University Press in the city's Jericho area, 'The Bookies' featured in the first episode of real ale-loving TV detective Morse and more recently in The Hairy Bikers' Pubs That Built Britain series. Its quirky decoration includes a train set on the ceiling, a barrel of 'help-yourself' monkeys nuts and things French, courtesy of Gallic patron Michel. The menu offers Burgundy snails in garlic butter; shredded duck pâté; fillet of sole roulade with spinach in cream and champagne sauce; fillet of pork in port, lime and garlic sauce; and a range of sweet and savoury crępes. There are six real ales on offer. Well-behaved students, children and dogs are more than welcome to this delightful corner pub.
