Bridge at The Trout/Jacobs Inn

Are you interested in a chance to play bridge with fellow bridge enthusiasts in the delightful riverside surroundings of The Trout Inn in Godstow (easy to reach from the ring road or A34, with plenty of parking)? We have started a regular Tuesday morning session starting at 9.30/9.45am. Tea, coffee and refreshments are available while we bid and play through a series of pre-dealt hands, ending at 12.45pm. The Trout also provides lunch for those who wish to stay. A great opportunity to practise what you have learnt and meet new people with friendly expert supervision on hand at every point. Come and join our regulars!

If you think you might be interested in coming to one of these play sessions, please feel free to send us an email ( saying when you are planning to come. At the moment only those who have shown interest in advance can be 100 per cent guaranteed a place, but the group is growing steadily week by week and in practice we almost invariably can accommodate those who turn up on spec. The current charge for each session is £15 a head, which includes the pre-dealt hands, expert supervision, Q and A and Jonathan’s tip of the week. The preferred method of payment is by bank transfer; details provided when you book in advance. Btu cash is also acceptable.

PLEASE NOTE For the next few weeks, because of special holiday factors, the morning sessions on Tuesdays will not be held at The Trout, but instead at the Jacobs Inn, an equally pleasant pub situated a few hundred yards away in Wolvercote village. There is plenty of parking there too. This is a link to the location. Look forward to seeing you there.
