Jolly Sportsman (1), 2 Lombard Street, Eynsham
Jolly Sportsman (1), 2 Lombard Street, Eynsham
Located on the corner of Lombard Street and Acre End Street, at the cross roads where they meet the High Street (on the left) and Mill Street. According to the excellent Eynsham's Community Website, the building is claimed to date from the 17th century, but the use as a pub only seems to date back to 1875. However the site also says the pub might be the same as one called the Crown, which opened in 1785. The building is Grade II listed.

The website also records that there used to be a 200-year-old Spanish gun (or musket) hanging on the wall in the bar. One day a customer offered to buy it for 120. Since it was only valued on the pub inventory at 5, the landlord rapidly accepted, and the gun hasn't been seen since.
