A romantic venue for our 2018 Valentine's Day dinner which was special for us as we made commitments to each other this year. Lovely lamb and the pork belly was really tasty, excellent service, nice to hear the piano played properly; we've heard her before and she's very good. We might have been tempted by the steaks but the prices were astronomical. More

Seafood | Oxford, Oxford

I took my wife for a pre Valentines meal at No1, it was the first time we had been there, having read about the review in the Oxford Mail. The cocktails we had were superb, as was the wine we chose. We had eaten during the day, so we’re jot that hungry, so shared the calamari which had a crispy dusting with succulent rings inside. We both had the deal of fish and chips, a bargain at £7, it cans piping hot, great batter and lovely chips on a bed of mixed salad. Couldn’t manage a pud. It was early, very wet outside and at the time were the only ones dining. However, more couples arrived as we were leaving. Great restaurant, with a charming bar lady and waiting staff. Ambience was really good with music we love. So good we have booked again and we are taking my daughter and son in law next month More

Didn't have desert so cant comment on that. Lovely ambience. Fully booked tables which must be a good sign. A little on the expensive side for a few of the items. More

A pre theatre meal with a discount voucher.The staff and service were top notch and we really enjoyed our main courses of swordfish and burger with sweet potato fries . Unfortunately although my plum crumble pudding was delicious my friends chocolate brownie was extremely dry and she couldn’t eat it. We did mention this to the waiter but it was still included in the bill. I don’t think I would go again unless I had a discount as it is quite expensive but then I guess it is in summertown ! More

Four of us went for a pre-theatre meal on Friday evening - along with everyone else who was going to Mama Mia at the New Theatre, or so it seemed! It was incredibly busy and we were a little concerned that the service would be slow but, having informed our friendly waitress we were going to the theatre, we had enough time. Salads were particularly good. This restaurant is a good choice for a quick, pre-theatre meal as the theatre is just across the road. More

We had made a booking post Christmas as we used to frequent the Black Boy when we worked for Oxford Brookes in Headington and were always satisfied with the experience, Now we are reitired we nrmaly meet up monthly and usually with little notice and have frquently been disappointed that it is fully booked. However I had a dental appointment so had good notice and managed to get a lunchtime booking. Unfortunately the dental appointment overran, and was more painful than anticipated, so I could only have the excellent soup, and wine(so not all bad!) but my friend had a main course which he was very pleased with, and a lush dessert. The service was speedy, attentive and sympathetic! This visit confirmed our previous opinion that the Black Boy is a very plesant and relaxing place to eat, the food and wine are alway very good and it has an excellent ambiance; highly recommended More
