Went to Oxford Social with 3 other friends. It's a small, discrete place, with a small sign which you could well miss if you were not looking carefully (that's what happened to us -- we zipped past the place before we realised that we had done so).
For starters, we decided to share and ordered the trio-dips with toasted bread, and fish fingers (see pic). Both were excellent. The fish fingers were juicy and tasty. The dips were great, especially the roasted beetroot. We were also glad that we shared because it left space for the mains!
For the mains, we had the roasted pork belly, grilled salmon, Genoan seafood curry and steak sandwich (see pics). The pork belly was heavenly -- I suspect cooked sous vide before roasting to make the crackling skin. The salmon was properly done, not overcooked. The watermelon chunks with wasabi was out of this world! The seafood curry was a tad heavy with the salt on its own but was pretty balanced when taken with rice. The steak sandwich was ok.
Overall, a most satisfying meal in a cosy setting. Will definitely be making a return visit!
