Turf Tavern

4–5 Bath Place Holywell Street Oxford OX1 3SU

A warren within a warren: slip down the alleyway that is Bath Place to find this 13th-century former gambling den, a confusion of snugs and rooms with a small courtyard garden. The bar is 400 years old, and as well as being the place where a former Aussie PM set the Guinness world record for consuming a yard of ale in 11 seconds, Bill Clinton also ‘did not inhale’ here in the 1970s.
