I heard about this pub/hotel from one of our footy crowd, "trademark" who rates it as one of his favourite haunts. It's in Stadhampton just outside Oxford and is well worth a visit. You will see from the picture above that I have a ticket in my hand........We were off to Oxford to see Reading stuff them 3-1 in the cup!!

Well, anyway away from the football you can see how the place got its name!!
First came here in summer 2003 with Cathy and was gobsmacked to be paying eight squid for two drinks!!
A very classy venue with statues littered about the place!!
There are two restaurants, one Thai(with Thai chef) and one Western...both very good I hear
And I'll leave you with a pic of nick looking rather pensive......was it nerves before the big game or was it depression.....(he was single at the time)
