See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Despite appearing in the news for being partially demolished on New Year's Day in 2003 and being closed for a year during restoration, the North Star remains one of Oxfordshire's finest pubs. Standing on The Causeway, it is one of a series of 17th century half-timbered houses and buildings, fully deserving its Grade II listed status. It has been in the hands of the same family over a long period of time. The North Star has barely a bar as such, merely a servery from the beer store to the tiny low-ceilinged public and lounge bars, the former with impressive high-backed seating surrounding the fireplace. Another room not served by the bar is also available, as are benches in the connecting corridor. Not to be missed.
