Our favourite restaurant in Oxford for a special occasion. Wonderful ambience, superb food and great service.
Great acoustics and the most comfortable dinning chairs in Oxford!
Only minor criticism is that the menu is rather limited. A few more options would be appreciated.
Highly recommended.

Excellent afternoon tea, unrushed, informal, excellent attentive but unobtrusive service. Scones were especially delicious and we were offered a top up of sandwiches and scones. Vegetarian requests catered for. Will definitely visit again for afternoon tea, and tempted also by lunch menu.

The service was impeccable from the time we arrived to the time we left. The staff were very attentive and cooperative and made the dining experience a pleasure. We had the Sunday Lunch menu and felt that it could be improved slightly as one of the beef portions was a little chewy and the Yorkshire pudding was slightly overdone, but overall we would rate the food highly. Next time we will try the a la carte menu. We would also rate the premises very highly as a pleasant place to spend the afternoon.

We visited for lunch and chose from the all day menu. Fish cakes, roasted beets and celeriac, terrine - everything was delicious. Very pleasant and reasonably priced wine by the glass.
Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful but not overly intrusive.
A perfect way to spend a wet, cold winter's day with a log fire burning in the background.

Our plaice came with a butter which was extremely salty. But chicken and linguine were good, and summer pudding and creme brulee excellent. I have had better coffee, but we enjoyed a bottle of Picpoul. It was a comfortable place for a leisurely lunch with old friends.
