About Us


The Gardeners Arms is a traditional style British pub set in the arty Jericho area of Oxford which reflects the friendly and slightly quirky character of this part of town.

Widely known for our great vegetarian food and relaxed atmosphere , having become free of tie at last in 2012 we have now expanded our range of well kept traditional British ales and have the pleasure of being able to bring you the finest brews that local independent breweries have to offer.

We also have a great selection of vegan friendly wines which we have delivered by the best local supplier who travels far and wide to seek out the finest wines to import and gives us regular expert recommendations on which varieties to stock.

Our range of bottled ciders, soft drinks and beers are carefully chosen to give variety and great taste to those looking for something different from the traditional real ale and our premium lagers also reflect our ethos that the products we supply are of the best quality.

The original wood decor of the front room of the pub give the pub it's nice traditional feel, complemented by the landlord's vinyl collection which decorates the top shelf around the room and the well stocked bookshelves and DVD exchange where customers are invited to borrow and swap DVDs library style.

The Gardeners Arms also boasts the only grass lawn beer garden in town great for relaxing and eating in on balmy summer evenings or long lazy weekend afternoons.

We play hosts to regular poetry nights and music events as well as our famous weekly quiz all of which help us maintain our position as a hub of the community as well as a great destination pub for travellers from further afield.

The pub supports two charities and the landlord (despite swearing never again after each one) regularly runs marathons to raise money via sponsorship from locals. If you wish to donate you can go to www.justgiving.com/gardenersarms and see his latest venture.

Becoming free of tie and becoming leaseholders recently has given us the ability to make improvements to the pub and give our customers more of what they deserve, central heating, a wider choice of drinks, a redesigned and beautiful garden and better furniture are all additions that were made possible by finally acquiring the reins and we plan more improvements so we can keep offering visitors a great dining and drinking experience.
