This appears to be a difficult location for pubs/restaurants - in previous incarnations I have had some excellent meals here but things seem to be struggle to keep going. In its current version, the Oxford Blue is marketing itself as a smokehouse. Sadly, not one that is actually doing any smoking of kippers, bacon or anything else, but one that... More

Popped in on the off chance after not being inspired in central Oxford. Emailed ahead and our table was ready. Great selection on the menu, even a few veggie dishes. We opted for 2 combos so we could have a bit of everything. Really well cooked meat and you could taste the difference between them all. We had burnt ends,brisket,ribs,Jacobs... More

I really enjoyed my meal here. I had the beef brisket, pulled pork and burnt ends. A huge portion, I only just got through the meat and had to leave the fries! Very tasty, soft meat served with excellent sauces. The service was very good, the staff were very friendly and I didn't feel rushed. Comfortable enough surroundings & the... More

Heard about this place from a friend and thought we would give it a try, it is off the beaten track and not likely to come across it by accident, but it is worth seeking out. We turned up on spec on a Saturday nigh and were lucky to get a table, probably best to book. The smokehouse is in... More

Thursday night and a party of 10 arrive at the restaurant, made really welcome and served drinks. Proper real ale in a restaurant I'm impressed. Great and varied menu with lots I fancied, although not much for a vegitarian i'm afraid. I went for a steak, med /rare and it was cooked to perfection. All our table enjoyed it immensely... More

Quiet night when we went, the service was good, pleasant staff, nothing too much trouble. The food was superb, couldn't finish mine (went home with it) . You weren't rushed to finish your food and there was an acceptable wait between courses!

This was my second visit. I had tried the ¼ CHICKEN, JACOB’S LADDER AND PULLED PORK on my first visit so I had an idea what I licked. So we ordered SLOW SMOKED BEEF BRISKET and BIG DADDY burger. Being meat lovers this was ideal combo for us as we share our dishes. Burger was awesome and full of flavour... More

Authentic American Smokehouse serving homemade burgers, tender steaks and a wide range of meat smoked from 12 - 24 hours. With a fully stocked bar, a variety of cocktails, a fridge full of American bottled beers and even more ales, lagers and ciders on tap, along with many more mocktails, milkshakes and massive challenges; there's nowhere better to release your inner carnivore. Herbivores however, are also both welcome and well catered to, with Chef's Specials, burgers and the best Mac & Cheese in Oxford.
