We welcome contributions to the new Oxford Drinker – please drop Dave Richardson a line at

Pub and brewery news is our bread and butter, but we also welcome guest columnists with a point of view that could be informative and entertaining for readers. As we no longer have the limitations of a printed format we hope to open up the Oxford Drinker to a wider range of contributors, and don’t worry if what you send isn’t word perfect.

We will be applying the same high journalistic standards as in the printed edition, but while contributions might be edited to ensure they are “legal, decent, honest and truthful” (to quote the Advertising Standards Authority), they will not normally be edited for length. But we suggest a maximum length for contributions of 1,000 words or thereabouts, and we also welcome high quality images. Except for large group photos we need the full names (left to right) of everyone in the picture.
