A TOTAL of 69 pubs in the county have been featured on a nationwide guide listing the best boozers to visit for a pint.

The 2019 Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide, officially launched today, includes 19 new pub entries in the Oxfordshire section as well as 24 county breweries.

Among the Oxford pubs to make the cut in the 43rd edition was St Giles’ Lamb & Flag.

The traditional inn, which unconventionally has no music or Wi–Fi , feeds back some profits into the city’s university student scholarships.

The building, protected by its Grade II-listed status, slots into Oxford’s historic skyline.

The Oxford Times:

Hoppy landlord of the Masons Arms in Old Marston, Chris Meeson, said to be featured in the guide again was ‘brilliant’ adding: “Visitors to Oxford, a lot of people, come and find us because of it.”

Mr Meeson said he thought that the Masons Arms had now been featured in the Good Beer Guide every year since 2005 – meaning the pub has consecutively been hitting the top 100 in Oxfordshire for more than a decade.

Another entry was The Angel on Sheep Street in Bicester.

The guide says the pub boasts a crackling log fire in winter and an array of local street vendors from an outdoor kitchen hatch at the weekends in summer.

The Angel Inn on Witney Market Square, meanwhile, boasts local beer and pitcher-perfect Grade II building interiors with low beams, bay windows and a dainty paved courtyard – which are all noted in the guide.

The George Hotel, not a newbie to the guide, sits on Wallingford High Street.

The coaching inn, dating back to the 1500s, is also licensed for wedding ceremonies and specialises in cask ales, approved by CAMRA in the guide this year.

Alongside traditional pubs, this year's list also includes at least Wetherspoons from Oxfordshire.

The Narrows in Abingdon was converted from a post office just five years ago and has now been given the thumbs up again by real ale campaign.

The Royal Oak in Wantage was branded a ‘street–corner mecca for the discerning drinker’, while the 17th century Plough in Long Wittenham was lauded for its large garden stretching down to the River Thames and 'ample outdoor seating' including children’s play area.

All pubs listed in the guide are nominated, evaluated and reviewed by local CAMRA volunteers, and an entry fee is never charged.

CAMRA, the campaign for real ale, is a non-profit group with more than 191,000 members.

Included in the guide is also a breakdown on the tax of a pint.

It lists the pennies which are typically charged from a standard £4 beer including the business rates, beer tax and VAT.

The guide, which can be purchased today, costs £13.
