From the Game menu.
Sadly, some of the food not up to the usual high standard. One dish was dried out and burnt.
I just love this place. I was there on the first night you re-opened and the last night before you closed again. Cant wait till you re-open again.
Great spot, brilliant service, but the the table in front of the fire is somewhere to avoid.
Overall a lovely evening.
Couldn’t have been better. Food, atmosphere and service were fabulous
Attentive staff, good ambiance, varied but small menu (which is good!)
The wine list felt like pretty good value also
We had a wonderful time. The staff, the food and the warm cosy fireplace was amazing. We were with my 5year old daughter and she almost licked her plate at the end.
We had a gorgeous afternoon tea here. Elegant yet cosy surroundings, excellent service and delicious food. We’ve had Afternoon Tea at some of the big London hotels and this one was on a par. Excellent value for money by comparison too
Great afternoon tea!
Early morning breakfast in a warm, cosy, and Covid-safe restaurant. Staff are lovely and food is excellent. A citadel of civilisation amongst the plagues of 2020.
Food was, as per its usual Standard, outstanding. The welcome and attentiveness of staff was also outstanding. The warm atmosphere is always so conducive to a special occasion or treat. The setting is simply unique, lavish and memorable.
Despite there being a power cut during our dinner the chef still sent out amazing food. Thank you!
Fantastic food and service. Lovely ambiance and decor.
A nice venue with friendly staff. Quite expensive but it is Oxford!
We were in Oxford for the day with our 3 young children. The food was delicious and hit the spot between being suitable for both adults and children.
The restaurant had a very restful and relaxing vibe to it that made it the perfect place to be between visiting museums either side of lunch.
The only negative was that the pistachio ice cream was extremely strongly flavoured. But not with pistachio- almond essence?
We look forward to returning again very soon.
One of the best restaurants in Oxford - lovely setting, great service and excellent food. The focus is on game. They have sourced excellent meat and based a very interesting menu on that
Visit Oxford once or twice a year and always try and eat at PG (formerly Old Parsonage - much better name which evokes history of the building).Anyway, food and service always good and can highly commend. Lovely place to sit and interesting menu.
Set up covid safe but would have been alot better if waiters had proper masks on. Nice ambience and decor. Good service. Food a little disappointing but overall enjoyed it.
Excellent on all fronts - the poached pear in bay infused maple syrup was deeeeliocious!
We celebrated my wife's birthday at the Old Parsonage. We expected the usual excellent service, ambience and high quality, delicious food. We were in no way disappointed. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give my wife a lovely birthday meal.
Amazing dinner by the fireplace. Cozy vibes with food arriving perfectly on time and overall an excellent dining experience
So nice to get out for delicious food with wine and cocktails! Great service and a quiet nook for our date night!
Really enjoyed my visit. Excellent food and service. Thank you.
This was a Christmas present from some very good friends. We had to wait until the restaurant was re opened to use it. It was a lovely treat and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The bloody Mary’s were amazing!
Scallops to start, followed by Rabbit pie with perfect pastry, others enjoyed pork belly. Lovely atmosphere fireplace and bar area entrance leads into dark walled dining room, decorated with beautifully lit oil paintings providing a comfortably elegant dining experience. One of Oxford's best restaurants and also has accommodation in Old Parsonage Hotel. Quiet spot and short walk to High street and colleges.
The most wonderful breakfast, One of if not my favourite getaway place.
It was delicious food
Good food. Parking very restricted. Wine excellent. Front of house a little confused. Needs to be more incisive
Great place overall
Lovely food, surroundings and staff. A lovely experience, thank you
Simply put, This is fine dining at its best from the food, staff, venue all top class. Attentive knowledgeable staff to the food which was Devine to say the least.
Wonderful experience, lovely A. Tea, great service and a very pleasant experience. A very nice hotel too.
As always a fantastic dinner - perfect in everyway!
Best breakfast in Oxford, you cannot beat the scrambled egg and smoked salmon.
friendly and attentive staff
Service was professional and food good . The wine was a bit on the pricey side though good.
Relaxed ambiance .... pleasant experience
Loved everything about this venue
Met a friend here early evening and it was a very pleasurable experience. The decor is very tasteful, tables nicely separated, polite staff, tasty food and good drinks menu. Would definitely recommend.
If you want traditional quintessential English afternoon tea, in beautiful old surroundings tastfully and interestingly done this is the place. The staff are friendly and attentive excellent social distancing with physical glass screens between clients. Highly recommended
Beautiful lunch for our anniversary. Fallow dear and non-alcoholic spiced pear mojito were incredible.
We are so pleased you celebrated your anniversary with us to enjoy the best of the seasons ingredients. We shall make sure our team are aware of your review, and hope you get another opportunity to visit us again soon.
It has been quite a while since we have had the opportunity to visit The Old Parsonage but it was a must as we spent 3 days exploring Oxford city ! We were not disappointed as ever the ambience was superb, the quality of food was excellent and the service was fabulous so delighted we were able to add to our. Lovely few days break in being able to enjoy an evening at the very lovely Old Parsonage, thank you all involved in making our stay in Oxford so enjoyable!!!
Impeccably served, very delicate cuisine! The ambience of the old parsonage is very civilised, discrete and congenial.
Dear JuFranD thank you so much for your review of afternoon tea with us, we hope you will be back to enjoy tea with us again soon.
Love this place! Lovely thoughtful staff, great food and perfect cocktails (the Oxford Cosmo has to be a new favourite!). It also felt very safe regarding the Covid regulations without being intrusive.
Thank you Anna for your support and great review we really appreciate it. We shall keep the Oxford Cosmo as a Parsonage classic cocktail so you can carry on enjoying it. See you soon
