Dear HPayne Kind words and a great review for us. In fact, we serve breakfast till 4.30pm - I don't know anywhere else that does, either - its all about giving the customer what they want, when they want it! If you're ever in again, we also do a "Breakfast Club" menu from 9.30-11.30am Mondays to Fridays, with egg and... More

My parents and I wandered into Joe's our very first night in Oxford. Everything on the menu looked delicious. My parents got burgers, which they said were the best burgers they had on our trip (And we're from Texas, so we know what a good hamburger should taste like). I had the chicken caesar salad, which usually isn't that special,... More

Upon arriving I was very impressed to see Joe's offered gluten free bread as I am very intolerant to wheat. I ordered the Eggs Benedict on gluten free toast with no problem or word of warning from the waiter. The eggs were sadly slightly overcooked and the hollandaise tasted bought in. At this point alarm bells started ringing as I... More

We were very sorry to read that you'd had an allergic reaction due to our hollandaise sauce - our eggs benedict is our best-selling brunch dish, with many customers coming back regularly to order it. All staff are aware of the contents of the menu, and we have an available list posted in the restaurant, easily accessible by staff, of... More

We've been meaning to visit here for some time and decided it would be ideal for brunch on the last day before we went back to work. Just a light bite of Eggs Royale for me and Eggs Benedict for the better half. Food was served promptly and did exactly what it said on the tin, so absolutely no complaints... More

Dear Rob L So glad your first visit was a good experience, and is tempting you to return for lunch or dinner - we feature blackboard lunch specials Monday to Friday from £5.50, always fresh and delicious...Tuesday nights why not try our Burger Club deal, from £10 for a burger, topping, chips AND a drink, or Wednesday Fish Night -...

Great burguer! Great beer! But they didn't have the traditional fish and chips :(... For sure I am going to go back in this restaurant in my next trip to Oxford!

We came here to have a chilled out day all together and had a lovely time! We started with Mai Thais and they flavour was great! And they're 4.50 during happy hour on Tuesday's so should definitely check out their menu. We had prawns with garlic bread to start and due to our obsession with prawns we really enjoyed them!...

Similar in style to a Hard Rock Cafe, with the walls adorned with guitars, pictures of jazz players, movie stars etc. There was a £10 deal on the night I went which included a burger, soft drink, and an extra topping of your choice and a some fries.

Dear OxfordTim Many thanks for your very detailed and kind review. Comparisons to the Hard Rock Cafe are indeed flattering! Regarding your Burger club deal, the chips shouldn't have been hard - just mention it to staff if that occurs again, as we're known for our lovely crisp-on-the-outside but fluffy-on-the-inside chunky chips ( see other reviews ).
