Modern Art oxford is a great place that host exhibitions from various artists which means it's always worth a visit. only problem is, that it is small so I wouldn't advise taking a special trip just to modern art oxford but it is a must if you're making a day of it with other exhibitions

After an absence of a year or so I visited this revamped attraction for lunch. It was interesting and had a unique atmnosphere. Now it has nothing going for it. Lunch was a soup and roll or a baguette, home made cakes and biscuits were on offer with the usual range of drinks. Nothing looked or was inspiring or exciting. Bland decor, little or no art on display, the downstairs loos were accessed by a large and unlit space and the upstairs signage was non existant. The offering in the small shop space was so limited I would be fascinated to hear what the turn over is. With the competeition there is on the high street the cafe can only decline and, with no revenue coming in through the shop and businesses and attractions offering more and more to attract visitors, I will be amazed if this place can survive.

They have a good range of exhibitions. The food in the cafe is fresh and well made, they have nice cakes and a good range of drinks. I like the cafe in the summer when it is out side in the yard.

The food is consistently good, if a bit of a limited choice. I had a pumpkin, chickpea and cranberry tagine - which was delicious, although the pitta bread that came with it had been heated up previously and become hard.
Also, perhaps the serving was a little modest, I could have easily eaten half as much again.
Staff pleasant, atmosphere good - on the quiet side.
The consistent quality means that I come here often.
