Had a nice meal here, the home-prepared smoked salmon was excellent; we really like the little anchovy appetisers; all the fish was well cooked. The main course fish soup came with a very well made base, must have taken a long time to prepare, but was spoilt by the very few pieces of fish in it - only a couple of mussels, couple of pieces of squid and one piece of fish fillet. So while very tasty and well made, it seemed an expensive option - my husband's fish and chips cost 50% less. Maybe it is a better deal to go earlier for the set menu - I would do that if I went again. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Ordered the early dining menu from 6-645, leaving at 730. Excellent value for outstanding food in a well-loved and visited Oxford eatery. Highly recommended.

£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.

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.

Should be rated much higher on tripadvisor! We had a lovely meal at Fishers and would love to visit again.

The food was of a lovely and fresh quaintly. The staff were very helpful and friendly and our meal was good value for money. Would highly recommend and would love to return when we're next in Oxford. Thank you Fishers!
