Up first, it’s a strong start for The Victoria Pub in Jericho.  A generous serving, full of flavour and impeccable vibes. 7.5/10

Now The Turf Tavern is a personal favourite but I can assure you no bias was was used in the evaluation of this mulled wine. Perfect balance of naughty and spice and of course the setting is as jolly and festive as it comes. 9/10

The Rickety Press


I think someone got a bit happy on the Brandy, but if that’s your jive, what do I know! Resultantly a little more bitter earning this pub an equally bitter 6/10.

From one extreme to the next, definitely the sweetest of the lot. Full of flavours of cranberry, quite the treat! Solid 7/10.

Not as sweet as it’s neighbours at the Jericho Tavern, so depends on preference! Dog and boardgames give this place a bit of an edge. Chuck in the 10% student discount and everyone’s laughing! 7/10

The Chequers

Being the oldest pub in Oxford, you’d hope they’d learnt a thing of two over the years. Bloody lovely! 8/10

The Crown


Well it’s not all lights and ribbons for everyone!  Talk about Bottom of the Barrel! Like a watered down warm red wine. I’m sure this must have been an off day because The Crown is usually pretty epic. Disappointing. 3.75/10


And the Winner is……Turf Tavern! Pretty flawless delivery from Turf as per, but safe to say Oxford is bathing in the riches of quality (mostly) Mulled Wine spots.
