Last year I reported on the closure of The Lamb and Flag in Oxford, where the Inklings held meetings in the early 1960s. The pub has now reopened after renovations. A community group signed a lease to operate the establishment, which is owned by St John’s College.
Meanwhile the group’s primary meeting place, The Eagle and Child, faces a similar situation. The pub closed in 2020 and remains shuttered as St John’s seeks a tenant.
