Missed a bus home and wanted one on the half hour so killed my time drinking a pint of Scholar (a brown, viscous bitter that I didn’t get any brewery details about from the Shotover Brewery in Horspath…thanks commenter Steven Green!) in the Rose and Crown. This was a pretty nice old pub and definitely has a neighbourhood joint feel to it. It smells a bit like the beer spilled here ten years ago is still announcing its presence, and the garden is packed with seating and seems pretty inviting…probably even more so on a warm summer evening. Alas, I only had time for the one and soon dashed off to the bus stop.
