This was our first visit to No 1 Ship Street, I booked using reviews from the internet and it did not disappoint. Despite operating until Covid procedures, the restaurant were super efficient in serving us to a very high stand. The food was excellent and I can thoroughly recommend the stone bass special and banana bread and butter pudding.
Great Food and wine selection. Tables only available until 10pm due to covid - nothing the restaurant can do - but we ended up rushing out!
The rib and lobster was exceptional along with the wine recommendation
Absolutely fabulous and faultless!!! Friendly and family run. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!!
Delightful restaurant in the centre of Oxford. Flawless service. We both had a rich & moreish lobster bisque and fresh oysters to start, followed by the half-lobster which was perfectly grilled. A very enjoyable experience which we look forward to repeating again soon.
Lovely atmosphere with decor and food to match!
A very cool restaurant serves fine dishes. Good recommendations from the staff.
Lovely find, food was very good however limited menu
A cosy pleasant convenient place for a good quality lunch with attentive service
The staff were super attentive. The food was really yummy and fresh!
Such a lovely restaurant in such a beautiful building. Can’t wait to come back !!
Another fantastic meal, with delicious food and friendly service!
Took my Mrs here for her birthday. Romantic ambience, and great food. Met with a glass of champagne as a birthday gift and they made an effort with the dessert to make it specially for the Birthday.
Food was very nice! Full of flavour. Note that the full lobster comes opened so you don't have to worry about fiddling around opening it. Steak was very nice, and the sauce was exceptional.
Best mussels and oysters we have had!
My one critique would be that it did take some time for us to be asked for our orders. But overall romantic, intimate and great food
Great dinner in all regards. Service on point and the atmosphere of the place very enjoyable. Food and wine was outstanding.
Lovely food, nice atmosphere and great service. Enjoyed it so much.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly servers and good quality food. Thank you! Have had better meals and friendlier service for the price range but overall a lovely evening! Thanks
Amazing food and wonderful service. Perfect for a Saturday night
A well needed chilled weekend away after all that's been put apon us this year ....needed a chilled out meal ...did not disapoint. From the moment we walked in the door we felt chilled..First class meal and service..steak to die for ..staff are par with top class restaurants I've visited in the city ..$$
Four of us (relatively old folk) ate in the upstairs dining room on a Saturday evening . Great food and service, lovely decor and atmosphere. The shortish menu had plenty of choice for all dietary requirements. There’s clearly a gifted chef in the kitchen. Only grumble was with the background music which, while mercifully not too loud, was the ubiquitous thumping techno stuff that twenty-something waiting staff like to inflict on 60-something old farts like me. A light tinkle of something classical in the background would lift this excellent restaurant to an even better experience. NB - the downstairs dining room is definitely for a younger and noisier crowd.
Excellent food, good menu choices, wonderful attentive service, exceptionally clean. Very much recommended for a lovely meal in the city centre.
excellent food as always- and great service. Felt safe and secure and really enjoy the atmosphere
Best restaurant in Oxford by far.
Great atmosphere. Superb service with excellent attention to detail for dietary issues. Another great meal at our favourite place.
Excellent food, attentive service everything was spot on. Will definitely return.
Pleasant attentive service, attractive ambience and imaginative well presented food. Really could not fault it in any way and will certainly go again.
Food was nice, a little over cooked for my personal taste (I had lamb). The service was very good and friendly.
Good food and very good attentive service. We would certainly return.
Fantastic, tasty good value meal . Attentive service . Really cosy interior for an intimate , romantic dinner.
Lovely venue with delicious food - thank you very much
I've written several times recently about the excellence of No 1. Today's visit was just as good as ever. . Friendly and extremely efficient, thoughtful service. Delicious lobster bisque - as good as anything on the menu! Excellent tender and flavoursome kidneys, and the sweetest and plumpest of mussels. The quality of cooking was - as ever - very consistent. I have no doubt that this is the best restaurant in Oxford- and I've been here for 44 years!
Fab food, service and atmosphere. Very safe and clean
Good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly but not intrusive. No concerns about social distancing. Excellent venue for a quiet, relaxed lunch.
Excellent food, great ambience and a real treat! Would highly recommend. One of the best restaurants in Oxford!
Cannot recommend highly enough! Finally got to make a long overdue booking - and wow it did NOT disappoint. Food was amazing. Service 2nd to none. Great selection of champagne, wines and spirits - and great cocktails if that takes your fancy. Looking forward to making next booking - we certainly
Won’t be leaving it very long - quality all round, with a lovely restaurant setting to enjoy it all in.
Very good seafood, best I have had this far from the sea in a long time. Exceptional service and a very pleasant atmosphere.
Fabulous restaurant in Oxford, have been a few times now and always have a great experience and the food delicious. The banana bread pudding is something else and a must try.
What a fantastic find. Will definitely be going back
Really competent cooking of upmarket bistro dishes. This is not Michelin star sophistication, but a super experience to which others should aspire, but mostly fail to achieve.
I can count on one hand the tiny number of restaurants where I have had lobster cooked properly, ie not completely overcooked, and this is one. Bravo!
It was a really lovely meal. The food and drinks were great and the service was faultless. I would definitely go back and would recommend to others.
Delicious food, mussels plump and juicy and lobster pretty good. Lovely wine choice and excellent friendly and smiley service.
