                        The food was below average I had classic burger ( the bread was dry and the beef was over cooked)

                        The young waiter was superb. He had a really calm pleasant and personable manner and was very engaging. Although there is a time limit on the table we were not rushed and we had such a lovely Sunday afternoon together having not seen each other for a year. I’m really pleased I took a chance on Dirty Bones. We were not disappointed.

                        Nice location despite being in a shopping centre. Food too synthetic for us. Would not go back, but fine for some.

                        Pleasantly surprised as it was our first visit. We ordered from the lunch time menu and we didn't have to wait long and the plates were generous. The food was delicious.

                        Always a great experience at Dirty Bones! The manager was a bit quick to take us to a table for 2, without checking with us first if we had booked a table and if there were others joining us...we had pre booked on Open Table for a table of 4! A bit embarrassing for him when we were shown to a tiny table for 2! Otherwise we love Dirty Bones, it’s one of our favorite restaurants when we visit Oxford.

                        Went for daughter’s 25th birthday, nice ambient eatery. Food came out quickly but was slightly overdone but still edible. Overall very nice, 12.5 percent service charge a bit steep for a table of four though.

                        Overall very good. But was in an out very quickly. That said not very busy on a late Sunday afternoon. Would suit groups a bit more. Buzzy atmosphere and slick team on front of house.

                        Everything was sticky, the doors, the table absolutely everything, very odd because it's a brand new place. The decor was good and the location, but the service was appalling and we ordered one hot dog (no sides) it wasn't that big but it was like eating pure SALT, almost inedible and it was £14 for a hot dog....we are NOT in London - it's a chain, why on earth are they charging that for a really salty sausage in a hard bun, covered in more salt? I won't be going back.
