The best lunch we have had in Oxford. And at £50 for two (three courses, a cocktail, wine and coffee) a very reasonable price. The student staff are very attentive (but unobtrusively so), the ambience is good and the food can't be faulted.

Absolutely lovely. Chicken Terrine, Confit Duck and Backwell Tart. Service was brilliant and staff were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Service was quick, the food was really of the highest order and very good value for money.
