Stepping off the park and ride bus and urgently seeking a coffee in congenial surroundings my wife and I were approached by a charming lady who recommended us to try the restaurant at the top of the Ashmolean.
What a lovely surprise! A bright and airy room with roof top views, a large outdoor seating area and even a grassed over space with deck chairs!
By this time we were easilly seduced into taking hot breakfasts with coffee. My wife chose a BLT -'really good' - and I tried the scrambled egg with mackerel. a pleasing combination.
Yes, it took a while for the food to arrive but it was prepared to order and how nice to relax, enjoy the ambience and not feel rushed.
Service was extremely politie and faultless.
Having read other somewhat negative reviews after our visit maybe things have changed for the better.
Our bill, including a well deserved tip for our waiter, was £20.00.
We sauntered throught the museum on our way down from the 4th floor (there is a tiny lift available) feeling well prepared to tackle our shopping expedition in Oxford.
