Name: Three Goats Heads - Location: Oxford

Address: 3A St. Michaels Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX1 2DR [01865 721523]
Always in support of the Samuel Smiths Brewery - although very concerned about the current company strategy towards its staff and customers, as exercised by the Directors. We believe in promoting common sense, decency, compassion, fairness and compliance with company, employment and English law.

A rumour doing the rounds............  Sams is selling this pub.  Do not know if it's true or not.

Would not have thought that Humphrey would sell a pub like this one in a prime location. Not heard that he normally sells any of his pubs.

It's hard to imagine that is the case.

It does seem unlikely as Humphrey has never sold a pub that i know of, for a long time. The only one i know of in the 70's was a training house near Middlesborough. Was sold to Bass and flattened i believe

I know of one elsewhere that was sold, pre-Humphrey era though.

Looks a lovely pub as well. Why is there a separate pub list Ian ?

It's not something you see very much of any more.  In the olden days many pubs would have two price lists, a cheaper one for the bar and a more expensive one for the lounge.  The reasoning behind this is that the lounge was plusher (and hence had had more money spent on it) and attracted a different and presumably better off clientele who were prepared to pay more for their drinks.

Yes years ago pubs had two price lists for the tap room and the lounge room. But only bu a few pence. Yes the people with more money often use ss pubs as a cheap night out
