Been here twice recently. First time was lovely. Great hearty food, prompt and polite service. That would have been a four star review if taken in isolation. The second visit was a different story. Waited 20 minutes after being seen to the table before a waiter came. Waited a further 45 minutes for my seriously over cooked wood pigeon to... More

We popped in for lunch and sat in the library room at a table that never was cleared. My wife duly ordered and paid for lunch after having been ignored at the bar for 10 minutes. She then had to wait for around 20 mins whilst the lone staff member served restaurant orders ahead of hers, even though she was... More

Nice choice of food (am vegetarian). Tasty food soon brought to the table. The meal included a contribution to Fight Against Famine (might be wrong with exact title) but thought that a neat idea.

We were out for a family outing and needed a coffee. Since we were passing by the TSK, we walked in. The place felt crowded and was noisy. We were deseated from our table and told to move upstairs as we were only having refreshments and we were sitting at 'a lunch table'. There couldn't be anything more impolite and... More

We had been to a talk in Oxford and were looking for somewhere different to eat and stumbled upon this. It was really busy and buzzy with lots of frenetic young people being friendly and jolly. It had a good vibe. They managed to squeeze us in (literally at the end of a long table) and we sat back and... More

As an Oxford local who has heard great things about this place, i've wanted to try it for ages. As a conference organiser, I had the perfect opportunity last week after finishing a busy conference weekend and requiring somewhere close to my venue, tasty and reasonably priced to go to eat with my colleagues. The Turl Street Kitchen prides itself... More

Maybe we got the service on an off night but it really let the place down. We were visiting for an event in a neighbouring college and as we know we'll be back in future wanted to try this as it seemed a great option. The set menu (3 courses for £16) was fab value when you're away and eating... More

The Turl Street Kitchen is a great find. I wouldn't say it's particularly cheap but it does give value for money. The staff are very friendly whilst it's informal, relaxed furnishings & decor add to the atmosphere. A great place for an early morning breakfast (the smoked salmon or the bacon roll are good) or a meal later in the... More

Best food I've had in a restaurant in ages, and served quickly. The waiter was personable and attentive, and clearly knew all about the food he was serving. He was even able to recommend us wines to accompany it. If I'm eating again in Oxford I'll definitely return. PS they also do a 15% student discount!
