In the past year, there has been a proliferation in trendy pubs in Oxford. Grimy dive bars and Chinese restaurants have made way for craft beer, pulled pork, bare-wood floors, stripped back walls, and mismatched furniture.
The White Rabbit - hidden down Friars Alley - recently replaced the seemingly popular Gloucester Arms. Serving real ale from the White Horse Brewery, alongside a couple of standard lagers and ciders, the slim choice of drinks suits the venue's size. As does the slim menu. Pizza is the mainstay here and starts pretty cheaply at £5-ish. I wasn't expecting much from the food, but as with the other trendy places in Oxford, quality seems key - and it was well represented by the goat's cheese and caramelised onion pizza I sampled.
Another mightily good addition to Oxford's trendy pub scene.
