“Faultless!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here today with out of town friends. I'm not vegetarian and nor do I like chickpeas but this Vegetarian Burger with Chickpea pattie was sensational! Accompanied with a nice healthy salad too. All 5 of us raved about our food (2 had Beef & Bacon Burger & the other the Seafood Chowder). The Christchurch visitors said they will definitely be back as they visit Oxford regularly and this was their first time eating here. This place is my local and they have never disappointed!!

“Good food, friendly service, a tad overpriced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Been here several times and always enjoyed nice drinks and quality food. The staff are friendly and it's got a much nicer atmosphere than snooty Seagars. The only minor complaint is that the food, especially the sweets are quite expensive for the portions offered.

“Okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Popped in for hot chocolates on a cold rainy day. First thing we notices were all the uncleared tables. Not a great first impression - especially when it was not very busy... Service was okay but nothing special. Chocolates were fine but found the cakes overprices for what they were. Will probably not bother going again.

“Not bad, could do better!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is OK but echoes a bit. Their coffee cup sizes are not big enough!
If you have food allergy issues you need to double check what the description says. I say this as they very nearly gave me a Guten Free slice that had gluten in it. They had wrongly assumed that cornflakes were OK because they are made of corn; when in actual fact they do connection gluten
Their prices are a bit high, but they are catering to visitors and not locals... Typical of most of the shops in Oxford really.
