This is the page for 254 Cowley Road.
1990s - present
This address is occupied by Cowley Road institution, the so-called 'Dodgy Deli', an off-license selling cheap (and occasionally out of date?) alcohol. It trades as Classic Wines and once sold flapjacks and other delicacies and stocks an unusually wide range of beers.
Photos of its (intentionally) graffitied shutters from 2006 can be see here.
