Oxford Arms265 Camden High Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Open plan, high-ceilinged pub on corner of Jamestown Rd., midway between Camden Town and Chalk Farm stations. The Oxford Arms dates back to early Victorian times with its high ceilings and original sash windows. While the decor reveals obvious results of refurbishment, one entrance retains the original wall tiling and mosaic flooring well worth a look at. Inside is a similar mix of old and new - five plasma TVs cater for the sports crowd (and a 2006/07 season Arsenal shirt hangs behind the bar), while B&W photos of old Camden nod in the direction of the pub's and the area's history. Food served until 21.00 daily, the menu covers the full range of options from all-day breakfasts to some calorie-laden desserts via a lengthy list of specials. The pub has been run by three generations of the Mayo Maloney family since 1968. Free to entry quiz Mondays. Beer garden at rear. Buses 24, 168.
