Great service and ambiance. We treated very well with a free starter to compensate for a wait for our main and a free pudding to celebrate our anniversary. This only spoilt a bit by one of our dishes not being very hot when served.
Lovely Sunday lunch as always.
Great atmosphere attentive staff
From the vegetarian offerings to the amazingly presented partridge, every item of food consumed by our party of six was superb. This restaurant never fails to serve up a menu of interesting, delicious and beautifully presented food. Even the cheese course demonstrates a degree of care and attention that too many other high-end restaurants don’t bring to their simplest dessert.
The service was nonpareil as they say in the bistro. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and they seem each to possess encyclopaedic knowledge of what’s on the menu and how it is cooked.
I will happily return to this fine establishment again. And again.
The food was first class & the setting was lovely. Highly recommend
Delicious food and great service. I had the pigeon which was well prepared. Fun dessert choices.
Excellent range of food, service and wines. Highly recommend.
Had celebration lunch after graduation - the service was excellent, the food was delicious and the wine was reasonably priced. Our table was very comfortable!
Superb grouse and very special venison rack all perfectly cooked and presented. Welcoming and friendly staff. Well worth a repeat visit
The Chicken Wellington is a must try! However, while the place is lovely, the seats are all next to each other which feels less private. Did not have a great service as well. Waiter did not ask for my coat when I arrived and when I expressed my concern that the Pork T-bone was not cooked evenly, he just acknowledged my comment that’s all.
Had a great Sunday lunch here. The beef was outstanding and the accompliments were well thought out and not just your average veg! I’d thoroughly recommend a gin martini as an aperitif which was prepared with perfection.
Brilliant vegan menu, lovely atmosphere and attentive staff. Highly recommended for a special occasion, or any occasion at all!
Very nice venue and atmosphere, serving good food. Would highly recommend
We visited for afternoon tea to celebrate my mum getting married in November.
The staff were incredible- attentive and welcoming. As someone who works in customer experience, you don't get service like this in many places but your team were amazing even congratulating her personally and offering a complimentary glass of champagne and celebratory cakes with candles.
The food and drink was perfect and my mum had the best time.
Thank you so much for having us and we will definitely be back again in the future! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion.
Three ladies who share the same birthday had lunch and were treated regally, the Old Parsonage team could not have been nicer to us - and the food was good!
The staff were xtremely polite and friendly, and the food was excellent! The atmosphere was bright and good natured.
The Parsonage Grill is an absolute delight. Housed in a beautifully restored building with outdoor
dining on the terrace, the food and service are impeccable. It is a must experience when
visiting Oxford in a lovely, cozy setting. Well worth the drive.
At a conference in Oxford and chanced on this great restaurant! Good service and advice, excellent food and reasonable wine options. In short a gem of a find. Next time I am back in Oxford I am sure to revisit.
Set lunch disappointing, good quality but 'parsimonious', a little meagre for the price. Pleasant service in a good looking property, great decor.
We sat outside on a lovely warm evening, so ambience was excellent.
We have lived near Oxford for many years and have never eaten at The Old Parsonage before, although we have driven past it many times. We were not disappointed as we had a lovely Sunday lunch here last week-end. We were particularly impressed with the service, the quality of the food and the choice of cocktails and other drinks. As it was a warm day we ate outside where there was some traffic noise as the tables under the gazebos are not far from the main road, however this did not spoil our meal. The food was nicely presented, it arrived hot and the portions were generous. We didn't need to eat anything else for the rest of the day! Our friendly waitress talked us through some of the gins on the menu and recommended a white wine to accompany my husband's fish, which he much enjoyed. This is a restaurant we will return to and can't think why we haven't been there before.
Considering the prices they charge the rump steak was very tough and chewy!! Not that impressed to be honest. Everything else was as I expected!!
We had a lovely wedding anniversary celebration meal. We were a party of 3, two adults and one 12 year old child who was very well looked after too. Would recommend. We sat in the garden on a lovely sunny day. Inside was also very nice. They even brought us a platter of little cakes to celebrate our anniversary, nice touch.
I come here all the time and have done for years: the food never fails to impress. Great range, really good value two and three course lunch and theatre menu. Festive yet cosy, great for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea. Delicious puddings. Highly recommended.
Delightful experience in cozy inn setting, excellent for occasion of meeting up with an old friend, say, an interesting menu of traditional "feel", and surrounded on all sides by a quite wonderful and eclectic array of portraiture.
Really enjoyed our lunch enroute to Heathrow airport
The staff are lovely. Sadly the menu is very restrictive and over priced
Lunch was to celebrate the birthday of a friend, and it all worked out exceedingly well. The menu was attractive and imaginative, and all the food was highly appreciated. Service was first-class throughout, and I was delighted to discover that due attention had been paid to the fact that this was a birthday occasion. Congratulations to all concerned.
We had Sunday lunch and were also staying the night. The weather was lovely so we opted to sit outside. It would have been lovely had it not been for the wasps. Having tried to stick it out we eventually gave in and moved indoors as did some other guests. Apart for that the food was very good, service quick and all staff polite, welcoming and helpful. When I booked I had not realised the St Giles annual fair was on (first week after first Sunday in September) Fortunately it did not start until the Monday morning although all the setting up was in full swing and roads closed. Thankfully Sunday night was quiet and undisturbed. I certainly would not want to stay for the two nights the fair was on. Lovely hotel in a great location for seeing Oxford on foot and great to have reserved parking as Oxford is a nightmare to park.
We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary having got engaged in Oxford. The hotel presented us with a celebratory dessert treat. How delightful. Thank you. We would definitely come again. Thanks to Alan Bennett and his diaries which was how I heard about the hotel.
For our 2nd visit we went for dinner there on a busy Friday night. I had the whole plaice after a steak tartare starter both were delicious. My OH had the steak & kidney pudding main course which was the special of the day, he polished it all off.
Restaurant is stylish & the staff are helpful & informed.
Hope to be back soon for my 3rd visit.
The Parsonage grill is beautiful and quaint and perfect for High Tea, lunch, brunch or dinner! The outdoor patio is stunning and the inside is very eligant. It is located in the Parsonage hotel and is quiet yet lively as many people were enjoying meals there.
We had a lovely high tea, and would like to try the hotel on our return.
Making the most of the rapidly-disappearing summer, we ate dinner on the terrace at the front of the hotel. It was quiet outside but the service was still very good and the outside tables were not neglected even though it was busier inside the restaurant. The straightforward, unfussy food was very good and well-executed. The side dishes complemented the mains and, although simple, were delicious. The broccoli, for example, was perfectly cooked and served with butter and toasted almonds.
We dine regularly at the restaurant and know that the Old Parsonage Grill will deliver consistent, good-quality food in charming surroundings (whether we choose to dine inside or outside).
First visit to the lovely parsonage for afternoon tea with friends found everything was all
Very nice lovely cakes and good customer service we will return again
Thankyou to all the staff
Went for afternoon tea, first time I’ve ever been for afternoon tea, it was exceptional !
It was relatively expensive but worth every penny 😀
We had a very enjoyable afternoon excellent te srve d by a very attentive n
And cheerful waitress
The food and the ambience
Belated birthday lunch for parents - started well with reserved parking spot for us as Mum is not so good on her feet these days! Excellent staff especially our waitress from Northern Italy - attentive & efficient. The food was splendid & reasonable lunchtime prices. Looking forward to paying another visit!
Lovely, elegant restaurant - great food, decent wine by the glass and good service. The decor is stylish and it has an intimate feel. Good for date night or drinks and light supper.
Waitress gave us a dirty look when we asked to move tables. Too close to restrooms.
I was extremely grateful for the reserved parking as one of the members of our party has real problems walking. The staff were very accommodating and coped really well with our orders. The food was delicious.
Everything , including the booking was so easy. I will definitely book again
