Description: Oxton Bar & Kitchen was founded in 2004. We are an independent bar, with a kitchen, and a terrace. We serve tasty fresh food, craft beers and the best cocktails around. We do not have a dartboard. All of our ingredients are sourced locally where possible & everything is home made (apart from the sausages, cheese & the ciabatta!)We aim to support our local independent business's / suppliers - therefore you will find no mainstream mediocre brands here.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

This pub has a car park and outside seated area which are both always a bonus as Oxton Village is not the easiest place to park a car. Inside seating areas are good and varied and you will either love or not the traditional tiled floor, which possibly slightly detracts from the up market atmosphere and reminds you that this site used to be for a pub "with a bit of a rep".

The menu is good though the bar snack side is perhaps a bit limited for us and we ended up with a fuller meal. Good quality food great quality drinks including a few they do themselves. My wife was impressed with the wine and glass. It is a bit pricey.

Service was good, though just for a bit the staff were pre-occupied. Overall though great and I bet it gets busy at night. In comparison with the nearby Courtyard there are of course plus's and minus's though they are different types of restaurant. I think the voting would be close! Bar scene goes to the Courtyard, but sitting outside on a Summer evening it has to go to the Oxton Bar and Kirtchen.
