Lonely Planet review for Isis Tavern
The destination of choice on a sunny weekend, the Isis is a down-to-earth boozer serving real ales in simple surroundings. It's slowly being spruced up, but somehow its stripped walls, sticky carpet and unassuming looks neatly convey its honest character. The large garden is a great place for children, dogs and lazy afternoons. To get here walk downstream along the towpath from Folly Bridge for about a mile. If you have the time, continue to Iffley Lock and cross the river to see the pretty village of stone cottages, thatched village hall and stunning 12th-century church.
