Lovely and unique approach from the Thames Path - down a sunken lane, with arches bedecked with fairly lights. Certainly an unforgettable approach.

Large beer garden with its own serving shed. They had gravity fed Old Hooky, which was much clearer than in the Trout but quickly became lifeless, as you would expect.

£8.90 for this and a lager and lime.

Nice place.

Tucked away in tiny Binsey village way off the Botley Road, The Perch seems to have its lot very much thrown into the food camp. That said, a nice eclectic range of ale - Marstons Pedigree, Old Hooky and Pride of Pendle - the latter very good indeed - all against a very stone-dominated interior made for a welcome sojourn away from the bustle of the Botley Road.

Apologies - this should refer to The Fishes at Hinksey

This has now ben renamed The Fishes, given a gastropub spruce up with the emphasis now on food rather than a leisurely pint. Everything in the dining room is fine and dandy with decent food available at fair prices.

Where it falls down is the garden service thanks to a rather precious system where food is despatched to diners in dinky wicker baskets. The trouble is it isn't despatched quickly enough - on a reasonably busy Sunday afternoon we had to wait more than an hour for food that didn't even need to be cooked. Service was unfailingly polite...but the system just doesn't work. Probably best sampled on a quiet weekday.

To describe the place as "a pretentious eaterie which has lost all its former character" is completely overegging it, as people are wont to do with such a classic. The Perch as I recall it was never exactly the perfect pub itself but it has a great garden and a great location, being the target of a classic walk out from Oxford across Port Meadow and the Thames/Isis to the hamlet of Binsey. On a warm March weekend resembling a summer's day, never mind spring, all the classic elements remain there - the beer was fine (Hook Norton Bitter), the garden was lovely, with nice little Glastonbury-style new age touches, and the hamlet is unspoiled. The interior has had a somewhat strange refit, but if the management have had to build the business model around dining, then that's hardly a surprise in this location in this day & age. If you didn't know the old Perch, don't fret, you can enjoy the new one pretty much as well as ever.
