Any decent pubs?

The Four Candles is a Wetherspoons near to the train station.

There is one near the ground, which will be shared with home fans which is the Priory.Priory_pub_kassam_oxford Update. We’ve been told that the Priory has now been closed.

The Royal Blenheim is about 4 miles away and worth a look at.
