King’s Arms

Pub in City Centre

A mere 400 years old, the ‘King’ in question being James I, the self-styled ‘brainiest pub’ in Oxford is owned by Wadham College and run by Fullers brewery. Drop in and see how its predominantly academic clientele impresses you. Prints, memorabilia and photos – Prince Charles pulling a pint, the (late) Queen Mother drinking one – testify to its long history.
