Rare pub that understands you don't necessarily have to smother a pizza in cheese to call it such. The food tastes good (have tried the burgers as well) and is delivered reasonably quickly. This place can be busy though so it is advisable to turn up early. Prices are not untypical for Oxford these days.

Positives: Great burgers and accompanying sides like the truffle and cheese fries. Burger was excellent. Full and busy pub with great atmosphere Not so positives: So busy you can hardly get a seat to east or drink. Great for the Business not so for the customers. Serving the burger without a plate may be cool and hip and save on... More

Jericho is a small village in the town of Oxford and this is one of four pubs within it, we visit the Press on a Saturday lunch time and it was inviting but busy. The beer and the food were first class and the staff gave old fashioned great friendly service with out being invasive, To get to the pub... More

Burgers and pizzas with "a twist", such as unexpected combinations of ingredients. It wasn't really to my taste as they seemed to put too many flavours together, but everyone else I was with seemed happy. The evening was redeemed by the high quality of the Dodo beers.

I enjoyed the food and the staff are warm and welcoming. Its a shame they did not allow us to change one of the burgers to meet one of our groups dietary requirements but its still very good. I enjoy dark pubs with a good vibe with music that isnt in your face..

Seven of us enjoyed a simple, well cooked lunch with pleasant service and a warm atmosphere. Our Book Club is a moveable feast but we would certainly come here again.

My dinner was not what I expected but it was very good regardless! I ordered a dish with quinoa, chicken, avocado and cauliflower and it turned out to be a cold salad, not a hot dish, but the flavors worked really well and it was overall an enjoyable dinner.

My son knew of this place and it was as well he did as it is somewhere that you would just happen upon if you didn't know it was there. We were there at lunchtime and were pleasantly surprised that we could take advantage of their pizza deal. The pizzas themselves were authentic and tasty and great value. It wasn't... More

Recently received a place in the good food guide 2013 after only 18 months. Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way.Propped up a stones throw from the city center, the Rickety Press has fast become one of the go too foodie destinations in Oxford. Boasting a menu packed with locally sourced ingredients and top-notch suppliers, their kitchen has planted its refined, yet simple offering firmly on the map; whatever the Kitchen decides to cook, you can rest assured the dishes will be super tasty and highly accessible. Established favorites include its superb sharing steaks & their homemade made ice-creams set alongside an ever-changing choice of seasonal dishes. Behind the bar you will also find a refreshing variety of craft beers, cask marked ales, considered wines and house cocktails, drafted into a drinks list offering the perfect choice of tipples for every stage of your meal.
