We always visit this place when we pop into the museum. The menu is great and has a mix of continental choices as well as your usual favourites, there's loads of specials on offer and I would recommend having something off the board.
The price is extremely reasonable for the area and the kids portions are excellent.
We always come back, needless to say this is highly recommended.

I ate here five times in June during a three week sojourn in the area for research and twice more with American undergraduates in late July/early August. The quality was very high, but not unvarying. After trying a few other Danish dishes, I settled consistently on the roast pork with potatoes and red cabbage. The pork was extremely well-cooked and tender with a nice layer of crackling. The sweetness of the red cabbage set off the pork wonderfully. This dish is absolutely a 5. Overall, very good. The service is mostly very friendly though a deep clean of the floor and tables wouldn't go amiss. One qualm only: one staff member, gray-haired and middle-aged, was quite unfriendly and brusque to the point of rudeness. This does seem a shame when everything else works so well.

We have been using this bar for years and it really is a good place. It is handy for the academy if you fancy a couple of beers before the gig but it stands on its own as a pub as well.

It has big gardens both front and rear with the one at the back being quieter as it is away from the road. Inside, there is a nice atmosphere and I have a great range of drinks. I've always found the service to be really friendly and this must be the best pub in the area.

Came here for our work end of term do, as we have fur years. Great spaces indoors and out, with a large variety of drinks and reasonably priced food on offer. Handy Oxford Road location. Well worth a visit!

Well worn and opposite student union this popular venue provides a surprising range of ales, gins and other drinks. Food on offer. A little worn, funky, seating outside, provides breakfast to evening meals. Prices OK, more student seen than 50 something venue.
