Looking for a decent but reasonable place to grab breakfast on a Sunday morning in Oxford, we stumbled across this place after a quick search on the internet. Initially deceiving, there is no sign of breakfast being served on the menu shown outside the restaurant, and you need to climb a flight of steep, old, wooden stairs to reach the... More

We have been here several times but only at lunch time. It's a bit like a canteen inside but the food is great. There are menus on the table but the form is to study the blackboard above the serving area and order from that. There is not a huge choice of hot food but what there is available is... More

In my postgrad heyday I loved this place. It has changed little and still delivers on the fresh tasty food front. Its location is part of its attraction, but I am too challenged now by the steep stairs, and the even trickier ones to the toilets., You order your own food from a salad bar or hot food of the...

Four of us had lunch here recently - and all thought it a really good choice. We had a wide range of dishes (eg one Vegan Sweet Potato Curry, one Moroccan Lamb, one Hot Chicken salad...) and all were excellent - which is quite a test of the chef's versatility. The house wine was reasonably priced and very drinkable. And... More

Had lunch here while shopping in Oxford. Friendly staff, nice surroundings, and good value quality food. We both had Quiche and Salad. Good selection of salads. Would particularly recommend the refreshing beetroot and melon. If you are looking for a healthy place to dine then look no further. We will definitely be coming back.

Worth seeking out. Upstairs so access is challenging. Great lunch menu, clearly home prepared if that makes sense ie not freezer or microwave warm ups.
