My first introduction to Turl Street Kitchen was on a date. They have a great atmosphere in the evening. They interior is very simple and elegant, with lots of natural wood and light. Their dinner selections are all very high quality and use local ingredients. I've since been back several times during the day to do coursework. There's a great... More

We were staying at the Tower House, so breakfast was to be taken in TSK. One could pick from the breakfast menu, and all in all it was very tasty. My wife especially liked the salmon toast and the yoghurt with granolla and fruit. Because the breakfast was nice, we decided to have dinner here the second night. Two remarks.... More

This is a deliberately scruffy higgle di Piggledy building right in the heart of the picturesque colleges in Oxford. It is sort of an upmarket student cafe, and somewhere we have taken our offspring and their friends to give them a decent meal during term time visits. The menu is straightforward, a few choices of dish heavily influenced by what... More

On recommendation we had lunch in the TSK, and very good too. We had the Plaice and the Pulled Pork, both excellent. Well served by cheery young waiting staff. The place is very Oxford, lots of students and people with Macs using the Wifi. Prices pretty good, not the greatest Mojito ever tasked but the Prosecco was fine. Would I... More

This place is fine. For me, I wouldn't rush back but I don't regret going. Food: modern British (you know the kind). I had some very tasty mouthfuls but it didn't all totally hang together. Wine - the temperature of the white wine suggested that it was a busy evening, i.e. it hadn't long been chilled. That's not so good... More

First off, I have to admit that we only tried the vegetarian dishes, perhaps the positive reviews around here are based on more inspired fare.. We however were served the two only veggie dishes; one of which was a "Tomato Tart" made from very tasteless, slightly blackened dough, the other was a bland medley of steamed vegetables. In bulletpoints, the... More

Eating here supports the Oxford Hub, which should make it taste even nicer. The menue is somewhat limited, but dishes are freshly prepared, reasonably priced and quite delicious.

Hi Nina, Thanks for your kind words. Our menu is limited due to the local and sustainable sourcing of our food, which means that we can only prepare meals we have the resources for. Because of this, our menu changes twice a day, meaning you can come as many times as you'd like across the week and never have to... More

Had lunch at TSK and it was NOT an enjoyeable experience. We had to wait for a table and after waiting about 10 minutes were seated on a bench at the end of a long table. Very uncomfortable. The noise level was so high we could barely carry on a conversation. The food was average at best. Service was not... More

We ate at Turl Street Kitchen as often as we could while in Oxford for a week. Recommended by a local - this restaurant is amazing value for the money.

The atmosphere is second to none. Good range of beers/ciders. Food arrives very fast and you can taste how fresh the ingredients are. The staff are always friendly too.
