Our first impressions were very hopeful. The place was full of Chinese people which we thought was a good sign. But then it went downhill from there. The service could not have been worse. E.g. we waited 1 hour 20 minutes before we got our...More

The Old School House in Gloucester Green Oxford is a fabulous building in the centre of Oxford. It oozes character and charm and when it first re-opened as a Sichuan eatery it was wonderful. The decor was sensitive and a good match for the architecture...More
