Delighted with our Valentine's meal last night at the Ashmolean. Really enjoyed the food, especially the excellent steak and tasty starters. Nice atmosphere and very pleasant and attentive service. Looking forward to next years Valentine dinner already. Thank you!

A really warm welcome from the staff, a great menu and well prepared food using really fresh ingredients - just lacked a little atmosphere.

We usually love going to this restaurant for its food, position and friendly staff. However, last night, we had the worst restaurant experience I have ever had. It was my husband's birthday and his parents had driven for over an hour to come to Oxford to have dinner with us. We had booked a table at the Ashmolean and his Mum was in particular really excited to be going there.

When we arrived, the security man on the door told us that the restaurant was closed for a private function! We explained that we had booked a table and he said that a lot of people had tables booked for that evening (including tables of 10 people etc) but that they were all being turned away because of this function and there was nothing he could do - all of the usual staff/chefs had gone home! What on earth were they playing at??! When my husband had booked the table, he had left his phone number but they hadn't even bothered to phone us and let us know.

We then spent quite some time wandering the streets of Oxford in the freezing cold looking for somewhere else to eat and ended up having to wait for an hour for a table somewhere else (obviously we had no booking!)

The complete lack of regard for their customers was truly remarkable - we were so so disappointed by this service - and I'm sure many others were too.

Nice place to have lunch looking at the roof of the Randolph hotel. I went with my wife and the lamb was perfect. Will return.

I have only eaten here once when it had just opened after refurbishment, so there were teething problems. A great venue for a special occasion - party etc or just lunch.
