River Pub

The Isis is the part of the Thames River that flows through Oxford. It is also the stretch of river where you can find a great local pub.  Transformed during the 1840s from a farmhouse into a tavern, The Isis Farmhouse can only be accessed by bike or foot (unless you take a boat). There is some history and a great photo of beer delivered by punt at this link http://thames.me.uk/s01640.htm .

The present day interior is filled with a quirky collection of objects, including a couple of boat hulls hanging from the roof. Large piles of newspapers and magazine are around to read on the sofas or out in the sprawling garden. There are often acoustic music nights and other events in a converted barn at the back. The bar is cash-only and stocked with local beer, cider and homemade cakes. Although the menu is limited to a couple of options, everything is homemade (including the bread).

There is no website but you can find information here:
