About us

The Library pub was founded in 2011 by two Oxford pub veterans to offer a unique independently run pub on the Cowley Road. This means we can offer a great selection of craft beers and spirits which you’ll be lucky to find anywhere else, as well as pop-up kitchens and live music events.

What kind of Library stays open until midnight every night, serves craft beer and has banging tunes? The best damn Library in town!

Opening hours:

Mon – Sun: 4pm – midnight

*please note that children and people under the age of 18 are not permitted on the premises after 7pm*

How to find us

We’re located on the busy Cowley Road of East Oxford just a few doors down from the O2 Academy. See the map below for the exact location.
