We have visited this restaurant 5 times since moving to Oxford and it's is excellent. Great specials - Ox cheek, skate, monkfish - and the service is very friendly.

Had a 21st birthday dinner for 60 people of varying ages. Everything about the restaurant was excellent - food, service, atmosphere. Our daughter, a student, had eaten there before Christmas with friends, and the meal was equally as good. Well worth a visit.

I went in hoping for some quality based on what appears to be a nice atmosphere. The wine was good, however the food was an excessive attempt to pander to British foodies and in doing so has...

Came in for lunch I had the red mullet which was pretty good, a little dry round the edges but a fillet that was not stingy, without being enormous either. I got lucky and had new potatoes and green beans with mine but the veg on offer for other dishes was a little minimalist. I had a bit of someone's... More

Visited here on a Monday night without a booking. Very busy but still managed to get a table for the 3 of us. Great service, attentive without being intrusive. Lovely starter and excellant Venison caserole from the specials board. Another wonderful experience here.
