Advantages Friendly atmosphere
Disadvantages Slightly dinghy
The layout of the Turf is rather archaic and I think this adds to its character. The ceilings inside are quite low. There are two medium size rooms inside. Outside they have two beerpatios with about 6 trestle tables each. In the winter there are heaters outside so it is possible to remain outside when the pub is busy.
FoodThe Turf serves food from a counter. The food is of reasonable quality but for what you get it is quite expensive. The food at the Kings Arms, at the end of Holywell Street is of a better quality. When the pub is busy it is sometimes impossible to eat due to overcrowding.
The Turf has all the usual pub drinks. It does lack Absinthe and Aftershock but the atmosphere demands a pint. The Turf usually has 2 or 3 guest bitters on tap but the quality of these varies. The Turf has three lagers on draught and two bitters. As with all pubs in the centre of Oxford the drinks are reasonably expensive. A pint will cost between £2 and £2.50.
