Description: The Big Bang is the true gastronomic experience of Great Britain; classic favourites done with a bit of style. We source almost everything from within 20 miles of the city and in doing so, we allow you to taste the authentic flavours of Oxford, not a chain restaurant version of it. We also throw in the best of our art, of local live music, all served up in the prettiest corner of town, the Oxford Castle Quarter, with a touch of eccentric British charm. Do drop in and say "hullo"Great Britain has so much excellent food to celebrate and so many small, local suppliers worth supporting, that a restaurant that celebrates local cuisine and allows visitors, locals and students alike to enjoy the best of what Britain grows, has been Oxford's firm favourite since 2004.

“Yummy sausages in a relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A great selection of traditional, as well as exciting sausage flavours. And there are specials. The gravies and veg are good too. Great if you want a slightly less expensive meal and a casual, friendly atmosphere.

“Simple hearty food”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Went to the Big Bang for only the second time a year after the first visit to Oxford and enjoyed the classic 'any 3 sausage and mash combo'. The dishes arrived well cooked and served with a smile. Discovered that sausages were in fact mixed up between each diner, however this wasn't a problem as the waiter promptly offered to make up a replacement plate whilst offering complimentary drinks whilst we waited. The final dishes were still a bit different fron the original order however was past caring as the taste was very nice anyway! Great atmosphere with cool ping pong tables and sand pit in the outdoor veranda. Great for summer brunch!

“Fire alarm didn't put us off”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Food was fantastic, service exemplary, but we could have done without the fire alarm going off due to toast being burnt!
