Set in the perfect location for Oxford City center with ample parking at a reasonable rate and within walking distance of the city center and the River Thames. Our surroundings are relaxed and tranquil and we offer service to match.

Join us in Deacons bar, where you can grab a bite to eat or enjoy a drink in a comfortable and inviting setting. If the weather’s fine, then take a tea or maybe a Pimm’s out to our sun terrace. If it’s dinner you are looking for, we have an à la carte menu in Deacon's restaurant where you won’t be disappointed to find many traditional English favourites.

Whatever you’re looking for, there’s nothing like great food and drink enjoyed in a comfortable setting to provide the finishing touches to a great hotel stay.

I had the beef feather blade and it was chewy, the dinner was a very small portion and overall wasn’t good value for money, I recommend diners walk 10 mins down the road to the Duke of Monmouth pub where they will get much better choice quality and value.

We booked a table, when we checked in at 2pm we had our table booking confirmed for 6.30pm. Upon arrival to the restaurant it was all in darkness, a member of staff came to tell us it was closed after an emergency that had happened this morning and we could sit in the bar. The only tables available in the bar were low ones with big lounge chairs..not the seating for a meal! We don't go out very often so was planning on going all out with this meal, 3 courses, wine etc. Not at a lounge chair though. No one told us about the change to our booking. No one had reserved us a table in the bar. I went to reception desk where I was met with a very hostile member of staff who merely shrugged when I asked why no one had let us know about our booking. He didn't care. I felt really sad as like I said, going out is a rarity for us, and we were really looking forward to having a nice romantic dinner. Because of the lack of interest, and suitable seating we decided to get an Uber Eats delivered and had it in our room. Awful service. I presume the same kitchen produces the breakfasts in the morning.. which was delivered to our room over an hour late and stone cold. Such a shame as the location is stunning. Customer service needs work.

Main food portion was incredibly small for the price, and not particularly inventive. Vegan options need an overhaul in my opinion. In comparison to a 100% vegan restaurant I visited the week before, this was poor.

They had to call a supervisor who after arriving directed us to sit in an area next to the hotel reception which was crowded and had a film crew there filming something. We ordered our food at the bar. When our food arrived, we were so surprised by the poor quality of the food, it was literally tasteless. All three of us were unable to finish the food and we are not fussy eaters. We then decided to leave. I went to the bar to pay and there was no staff. After 10 minutes he turned up from behind the bar to await the greeting queue of customers. After coughing in his hand a few times, he then joked/ apologised that he was in the area behind the bar having his lunch. 40 pounds for an hour of wasted time.
