|Went here for Sunday Lunch. The roast sirloin beef was inedible, tough, like eating old boot. It was also very pricey @¬£12.95. I shall not be going here again in a hurry.|

|Visited at lunchtime busy but got a table Beer Youngs Bitter was top notch Food simple but reasonable quality arrived within 10 mins of ordering Staff were helpful & as others have said has an excellent atmosphere. Only disappointement were the frankly pretty awful loos which probalbly as a result of being in the basement were terribly smelly.|

|Another dissappointment from Oxfords declining pub scene. The inside is fine but the staff are terrible. It took an age to get service and then the wine measure was short. They dont seem to know what their doing - perhaps it was a first shift for all of them. Find somewhere else.|

|Didnít have a lot of hope for this one when approaching along Broad Street and was expecting the usual Youngs inner city type sterile gastro food orientated pub, but found a much better pub than I was expecting.|
This was possibly helped by the fact that we did get some table space in one of the very pleasant smaller snug rooms towards the back of the pub.
As mentioned by previous reviewers, itís quite a large pub internally, but divided into several distinct spaces , with two serving bar spaces and additional separate rooms. The front bar is comfortable but not the best space in this pub and the smaller rooms at the back have much more atmosphere and house a display of pictures of old customers who have visited down the years, including of course, Morse and Lewis.
Named after King James 1, who was closely involved with the adjacent Wadham College, at various times over the years itís been a coaching inn and a hotel, and the back bar, known as "The Office" was a male only bar until the fairer sex were allowed in after a redecoration after a fire in 1973.
A decent beer choice for a Youngs pub with seven beers available, which were four Youngs with the usual protagonists and three guest ales. The couple we had were well kept and I could not fault my St Austellís Tribute, except for the fact that it was bloody expensive and this must be one of the most expensive pubs in OX1.

|Young's gastro pub with their usual high prices which seems to happen when Young's spoil a pub. John Young must be turning in his grave seeing what Young's are doing to his pub's. This was totally against his ethos. Wood floor and fittings.|
