Description: Enjoy a modern interpretation of classic British and Continental cuisine in the elegant yet relaxed setting of Restaurant 66A. The contemporary decor blends seamlessly with period features such as large bay windows and high ceilings to create the ideal setting for business lunches and candlelit dinners. At Restaurant 66A we take pride in using fresh, and when possible organic, local produce, some of which comes from the owner's farm.

“terribly disappointing”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

we checked in early to let the staff know that we were in the area and wouldn't be back until later in the evening. it was too early to check in, but we knew that. we came back around 9pm, checked in, but found that our reservation for twin beds had been ignored. went back to the front desk to find that we were out of luck, not another room available, not even another single room available, so one of us was sleeping on the floor. they did bring and extra duvet and pillows to accomodate us and cut 50 pounds off the bill, but it didn't make up the inconveniece of the discomfort for these old bones sleeping on the floor.

Breakfast was also a disaster. we ordered two teas, two white toasts and a side of bacon. we sat there for about 15 minutes, everyone else had cleared the restaurant. they came out with the bacon. um...tea? toast? then they delivered a tray of two white, two wheat and both the white toasts were burnt. the tea was good when it finally arrived. the person in charge enquired much too late to be helpful.

on the onset, this looks to be a nice place. on closer inspection, it's been left to poor maintenance. there are much better hotels in Oxford, please find another. we visited a friend staying at the Hawkwell House, this is a much better place!!!!!!!!!!!!! wish we could have booked there instead!

“Prix fixe menu - good service”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This restaurant mainly serves as a hotel restaurant, but you cannot transfer a bill for pre-meal drinks in the hotel bar to the restaurant bill, and if you want to pay by credit card this must be carried out in the hotel reception as there is no machine in the restaurant.

The food was nice - a choice of four starters, four mains and four desserts. The food we ate was very nice - not outstanding but filling and cooked and presented well. The service was fine, and when we had questions, the waitress went out of her way to find the answers.

If I stayed in the hotel I would eat here again, but for me it's not a destination restaurant.

“"Superb Sunday Luncheon"”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

This extremely friendly hotel served a delicious lunch to me and four of my friends yesterday 29th.July 2012.Attentive staff served locally sourced meats and vegetables which were freshly cooked.No short cuts boil in the bag,microwaved or packet sauces here!Good choices on the table d'hote menu,value for money and a not pricey house wine.The setting was a bit staid but the staff and the whole occasion made up for any cosmetic deficiencies.Would definitely recommend to friends and will return again myself in the near future.
