The Oxford is owned by the same people who tarted up the North London Tavern in Kilburn. And as a result, this one's very much in keeping with a standard gastropub arrangement: bar area at the front, open plan kitchen at the side, dining area at the back and the giant blackboard menu on the rear wall. It's probably not the market they're after, but this one does a decent enough job for a drink both before and after a gig at The Forum. With decent beer on the pumps and a good menu, it's definitely doing what it does best, and the friendly and prompt service is worth the effort. It's got lots of regular events going on, including live music, regular quiz night and DJ nights, and is obviously attracting a diverse clienteles from families to gig-goers. Worth a look, even if you're just going to a gig.

Ale is ordinary (well done for a changing range but never in the best nick!!) but the food is superb, friendly staff too.

This is a pleasant enough place but one word of warning, it is very expensive, certainly by my standards. £7.20 for two pints, a very ordinary tasting Deuchars IPA and a continental lager, is surely too much. In these gastropubs, does the drink subsidise the food, or are costs managed seperately?
