The House

Blue Boar Street Oxford OX1 4EE

Owned by the same people as the Duke of Cambridge, this cool new bar just off the high street featured in Elle’s top 25 bars 2010, and has a fine list of in cocktails to enjoy amongst the Philippe Stark furnishings. It’s a nice place for a drink no question, but is less expensive than you might, with a good line in Thai snacks to soak up the alcohol.
