The Old Tom, situated opposite Christ Church College, is one of Oxford's most famous and popular pubs. Its position and name clearly help it to pull in the passing tourist trade, but the pub is worth a visit in its own right. Its atmosphere is always calm and tranquil, bookish even, but don't be misled into thinking that this means dull. The Old Tom's Irish pub feel, with its superb Guinness and fine Irish whiskey, could easily make you feel as though you have been whisked away to the Emerald Isle.
O'Grady's is easy to find next to the only downtown parking in central Oxford. It has that ubiquitous charm of an authentic Irish Pub. Which comes at a price, expensive pints - well served and the warmest fireplace in a 'front room' setting to ward off the rain and cold. Slan.
