“Good food, friendly staff, early evening set menu is great value!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

£11 for 3 courses on the evening set menu is perfect for a little treat (I had squid, followed by mussels & chips, then an Apple crumble - all delicious). Mains not too heavy. Nice atmosphere if a tiny bit cold (temperature). Service slow at times but food delivered promptly.

“Best Fish in Oxford”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We always try to get to Fishers but it is a big walk or a car journey to that part of town - but it is worth it. They do a fab menu at lunch for about £10.00 - amazing value and high quality food. The service is always good.

“Good food, good ambiance, good value”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We enjoyed the set lunch menu (£8.50 for two courses) on a cold Saturday in January. It was great - nice pumpkin soup with wholemeal bread, and salmon fishcake and chips for one of us and a tasty smoked haddock kedgeree for the other. We really enjoyed it. There was a good overall choice - obviously much more on the a la carte menu. The location is good too, on the Cowley Road (just over Magdalen Bridge and opposite one of the bus stops serving the frequent buses from London). The same set menu is also on offer in the early evening.
We warmly recommend and hope to return.

Our lunchtime visit to Fishers was our first but definitely not the last - for a fish lover, this is heaven! Plenty of interesting choice on the menu and friendly, attentive service. Highly recommended.
