Welcome to Oxford CAMRA

Support  local beer, pubs, clubs and cider producers

We need to support pubs as much as we can and urge others to do the same. People may feel that going to the pub now is not the same experience, but it’s getting back to normal and, more than ever, pubs need our support if they are going to survive.

To find pubs which are open please visit whatpub.com. (notice the warning about opening hours. Pubs are varying their hours, often from week to week. We do our best to update opening hours but it is very difficult to keep up with over 300 pubs and they will keep changing!. Check with the pub – facebook is often best, if you need to.) Help us to help you by sending in feedback from the WhatPub entry if any details have change.

The Campaign for Real Ale

 – Oxford Branch

Exciting news!  

We are producing the branch magazine Oxford Drinker again, now four times a year. There is also an online version with up-to-date news and articles, so take a look at: Oxford Drinker

Sign up on the website for email updates, either as they happen or a weekly digest. And, most importantly of all, tell everyone you know and even people you don’t by using Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We have a wealth of news and views, and we welcome your contributions. Get in touch with story ideas, and if you want to write for us – even better!

The new website will be updated whenever there’s something worth telling you such as pub and brewery news, ‘On Tour’ reports, national news about pubs and breweries, thought-provoking guest columnists, ‘Down Memory Lane’ and much more.

On this web site:

You can find out how to keep up with branch events in Latest news . There is a complete guide to the CAMRA Discount and Voucher schemes in CAMRA news. We are starting to hold social events and branch meetings and the details are in What’s On, which also includes the Branch Diary and upcoming beer festivals in the Beer Festival Diary.

We have started our Pub(s) of the Year competition for 2024. You have until the end of the year to download a copy of the voting forms, visit the pubs, and pick the one you think is the best.  Vote for the Branch Pub(s) of the Year.

You can download and read our current and previous editions of our publication, back issues of Oxford Drinker.

If you are visiting Oxford, you can download our City-centre-pubs-with-times-Oct-2022   or, if you want to find a particular pub, or all pubs in a town or village, there is a wealth of information on CAMRA’s pub database WhatPub  .

We have got approval for the Oxford Beer & Cider Festival 2023 which will be on 9th to the 11th of November in Oxford Town Hall as usual. Oxford CAMRA Beer & Cider Festival 2023 has more information and an excellent ‘beer-festival-in-3-minutes’ time-lapse. As usual the whole event is run by volunteers. It’s lots of fun and if you want to help get over to the web site and fill in the staffing form or email me contact
