Very pleasant

Gee's setting in a conservatory is lovely. The service is efficient and very friendly. The food is both interesting and well cooked with a strong seasonal basis. The lamb fillet starter was unusual and delicious. The seafood risotto was also very good. Overall a very pleasant experience. From our... read more

Having seen some recent comments here we kept our booking for a family celebration with some trepidation, but we need not have worried. The atmosphere was perfect for a family and friends gathering, the service friendly and very helpful with no delays but not rushed in any way. The food and wine were delicious and portion size perfect. The presentation... More

Extremely disappointing meal. Tiny portions and very average quality at a high end price, intermittent service. Badly mixed cocktails. very mediocre main course one of which was so salty it was inedible. We chose not to bother with dessert on the basis of the starters and mains. Why we allowed the 12.5% service charge to stand I don't know. Would... More

Literally shaky service. Not only did the waiter take our order wrongly (so a long wait when this had to be corrected) but the poor inexperienced soul was wobbling drinks and plates with his nervousness. The lamb on the set menu was very boring, something i could have done much better and more imaginatively at home. I visited the revamped... More

Have just returned from dinner at Gees. Very disappointed with our experience which was for my friends birthday. Food was average and overpriced. Presentation not great. Awful Malbec. My risotto was so salty I couldn't finish it but this was taken off the bill without us asking. We didn't bother to stay for one of the uninspiring desserts. The whole... More

On arrival it looked beautiful and the atmosphere was great. As it was my sons graduation we were really looking forward to our meal. We were half hour early so had a couple of drinks at the bar which I felt bad ordering as the poor barman was so busy doing the drinks for the whole restaurant, it took a... More

Great atmosphere, great food, great service! We were here 3rd time and as always food was to die for. We also had a little romantic desert with sorbet and words written with hot chocolate. :)

Sadly this let us down. My daughter lives in Oxford and we visited her for her birthday then took her to Gees for a celebration dinner. We have eaten in many excellent restaurants including 1 and 2 Michelin Stars so we are experienced enough to judge. This was poor. The starters were reasonable, the wine ok and good value for...

Now an average experience. The restaurant underwent a facelift recently but has emerged more casual bistro style but still with fine dining prices. Bad decision. It used to be quite exclusive but not now! Shame.
