Oxford pubs have become famous through their depiction in many films and TV series such as Inspector Morse. They range from the historic and popular Turf Tavern to the modern bars such as Thirst and the Living Room. Although there are a large number of pubs in Oxford City Centre there are also many pubs around Oxford that are worth considering such as the Trout at Wolvercote which has a very attractive location next to the River Thames. Should you wish to try a glass of English beer (also known a, Real Ale or Bitter) there are a few things you might wish to know. Real Ale is normally served at cellar temperature which is not as cold as larger or continental beers. Real Ale / Bitter also normally has a much stronger flavour which varies from brand to brand and is served flat (not many bubbles). So before you order a whole pint you might wish to try a small sample of the beer which most pub landlords will happily allow. One thing to be aware of is that not everyone can drink legally in English pubs - there's a minimum age limit as to when you can start buying alcohol. If you are in a restaurant you can have a glass with a meal at the age of 14. At 16 you can drink shandy (lemonade mixed with beer) in pubs and at 18 you can start buying alcohol legally in pubs (good news if you are American!).
