NICE SANDWICH

The family and I had a sandwich at Taylor's. Unfortunately the staff has problems understanding my Geordie accent which was a bit frustrating. Having said that no one complained about the sandwiches and drinks. Seating was limited. Price seemed reasonable to me.

The Taylor's branch in summertown is horrendous to say the least, and if I was basing my review solely upon my experience there i would have rated it as "terrible". The staff in the summertown branch are incredibly unhelpful, rude and supercilious. Their demeanour is cold and they do their upmost to make you feel unwelcome and that you are... More

- Staff not helpful about options when ordering a make-to-order sandwiches - Staff behave impatiently when making a decision from busy menu - Staff acting as though its not their job to be considerate and helpful - Staff actually laughing at customers - Completely unwelcoming experience

Terrible service and pointless bureaucratic rules which ruins the potential nice sandwiches. At 9am when deadly quiet despite having all the ingredients could not make up a sandwich which they sell in the Summertown branch of the same store. Rather than use initiative and be helpful the manager smirked and laughed and just stood their crossing his arms smiling at... More

I'd heard great things about Taylor's being the ultimate spot for lunch. After going for lunch there recently, I see that it comes at a high price. It's definitely not the cheapest place to eat in Oxford. There is a wide selection to choose from but the overall quality of the food wasn't worth the price paid.

Hi there, I am sorry that you feel that our products are expensive. We take great care in pricing ourselves according to what we offer. We buy British bacon and sausages and our chicken comes from an organic farm in Banbury. All of our fresh produce is sourced locally and organically. We offer a superior product which costs us more... More

My partner and I were desperate for something to eat after a bus journey back from London... And had no time to find somewhere because of connecting bus journeys... I jumped into Taylor's and picked up three assorted snacks... A coronation chicken baguette, falafel wrap and an egg mayo sandwich... We got on the bus and sneakily started snacking, we... More

We happened upon Taylors by chance as we were attracted by the lovely window display - good food and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere.

We pointed to a sandwich and requested one of these but without the cheese. The girl attempted to remove the cheese from the pre-prepared sandwich. We were then told that sandwiches cannot be made to order as they are all frozen and defrosted each day ready for sale. The attitude of the three members of staff we encountered showed that... More

After a long tour around the city we decided to have some lunch at Taylors Deli in Oxford. We were attracted by the any baguette half price and soup of the day deal so we decided to give the restaurant a go. When we arrived this was packed so we struggled for seats, the staff has just waited and kept... More

Taylors is pretty average. My first meal there was a bit of a letdown, but I found that the sandwiches are good if you're on-the-go. There are several locations in Oxford, and the prices are lower than other solo cafes.
