Frevd is a Fraud

119 Walton Street,

Jericho, Oxford
United Kingdom

Where is it?

From the front door head towards the left past the bar. There’s a pair of double of fairly bland dark double doors. Go through them and you’ll find the toilets through there.

What’s it like?

So, set in a converted Church in trendy Jericho this place is all about the wow of the building. The church conversion is used to full effect with banners hanging from the roof space. It is a pity that the wow stops there and lack of attention to the whole experience lets this place down. The food was fairly average to poor (pop in for a drink and leave it at that) and the toilets are unloved.

Yes, wow turns to urgh when you enter the toilets. Cold and drab you wonder why they have painted the walls bright yellow? I hardly want to speculate, but it might have something to do with the fairly limited number of urinals for the space available. In fact there is a general grubby feel throughout. The paint goes right on to bare brick. The sink is serviceable, but you would only use it through necessity. The lack of attention makes it clear that the owners don’t care whether you come back or not. In short, despite the potential you find out that Frevd is a fraud.

Marks out of 10:

3. At least they were servicable.

Comments to the management:

You need to refurbish if you want people to feel good about taking a pee.
