Cozy nook and nice food

We catch up with friends for the coffee first and foremost and then talk ourselves into a bagel and finish with some ice-cream to go. A nice, relaxed vibe, good light meal and yum coffee.

This ice cream place is overrated and over-priced but manages to hide its "flaws" with jovial staff and jovial drawings of cows all over the place. I have visited it numerous times when I was a student in Oxford and it did not feel as bad then but the essence remains: average ice cream on the expensive side, over-priced bagels... More

I'm giving this one 5 stars just for the passion fruit ice cream. It is unbelievable! Pure explosion of flavour in your mouth! The rest of the flavours were excellent as well, you won't be disappointed! The staff was also very friendly. Very good!

You cannot leave Oxford without having a G&Ds ice cream. With three ice cream parlours around Oxford, their fun and arty interior is hard to walk past without noticing. Although they are renowned for their range of ice creams, I would also recommend their lunch menu - A favourite has to be their bagels! This is an all round great... More

An Oxford institution, G&D's ice-cream is simply the best. Some of the petition flavours can be a little odd, but the classics are brilliant.

Great place with wonderful range of ice creams. A refreshing break from the ordinary trudge of chains and corporations. Staff were quick and friendly with no fuss. The value was OK but could of been better.

They have an endearing love of cows. Food here is variable. The ice cream is always good, and they have genuinely unusual flavours sometimes, but I would never get a coffee from here and some of their desserts are a little average. The other good thing about G&Ds, of course, is it's open till midnight. When everywhere else is closed,... More

The ice cream is superb! By far my favorite is the dime bar crunch! The brownie sundee is great too. The coffee and food are very average thought. The coffee is served too hot and the food counter is not very appealing. Staff are friendly and I like the evening music xx

I enjoy my returns to this chain as its always brilliant and the ice cream is special! Make sure you areny constrained by "normal" flavours and experience the variety on offer
