On Saturday, Rob and I visited the Rose & Crown in Oxford.
This pub can be largely blamed for us beginning this journey: Our discussion in The Black Horse began with me claiming that Oxford's Rose & Crown is the best pub in the country. Assuming the Rose & Crowns are a representative sample of the UK's pubs, then finding whether Oxford's is the country's best Rose & Crown would be a good indication of whether or not it's the UK's best pub.
As always, our experience at the best pub on North Parade was great. This pub really should be visited by all. Lots.
