William Morris Club in Oxford?

According to M.P. Ashley and C.T. Saunders in 'Red Oxford' (2nd edition, 1933), "In 1928 and 1929 members of the Labour Club ran, but as an independent organisation called the William Morris Club, a club room where meals could be obtained. It was situated first in Queen Street, later in the High" (p.43).

Does anybody know more of this Morris Club than just the name? Was it some kind of rallying point for the left in the Oxford University Labour Club, or was it really just a glorified cafe?
