This pub, established in 1492, claims to be Oxford's oldest. It is very small, and its popularity ensures that it is often packed in the evening. Located off the High Street down Wheatsheaf Yard, it can also be reached down an alley off St. Aldates past Oxford Museum. You'll easily spot the pub by the cut-out of a chained bear adorning one of its white walls. The Bear serves real ales, and fairly standard pub food is available. It shares an outside seating area with the nearby Wheatsheaf Pub.
