    OK enough 'bar grub' but fell well short of my expectations on the quality of the food based upon the description - hoped/expected a lot more.

    Had made a booking for a birthday Sunday Lunch with friends. Arrived at the restaurant, enquired about our booking to which there was no knowledge. Told we could just sit anywhere in a very carefree manner (member of staff who ‘greeted’ us never came out from behind the bar we had to approach her). We were given menus and told we could order at the bar whenever we were ready. We weren’t provided with a Sunday Lunch menu so asked if this was available. We were told they might be doing Sunday Lunch in 10-20 mins but weren’t sure (this was after 1pm when we arrived). My friend looked at other diners meals and believed they were already eating roasts, which confused us. We were also told if they did do roasts there was no chicken option available. Still not being given a menu to see what the Sunday Lunch entailed we had to get menus up on our phones. We made a drinks order with 1 guest wanting a glass of rosé - told there wasn’t enough rosé in the open bottle to pour a glassful. Requested a different rosé and told the same. Saying they hadn’t received a rosé delivery that weekend. Eventually told “I guess I could go and see whether the bar downstairs has anymore...” which it turned out it did. We ended up having a round of drinks and using this time to look at menus in neighbouring restaurants and made a lunch booking elsewhere. There was no atmosphere in the restaurant. We were made to feel like all of questions were a huge imposition on the lacklustre staff. 2 members of our party had travelled from Bath and Swindon so had we not moved locations could have had a very dissapointing journey/visit.

    This was our second visit to this restaurant, the first time we loved the food and service, so we decided to bring some friends, so we booked a table for six, to dine before we were going to ghe theatre between xmas and new year. When we ordered straters, 1 was not available ( the fish) when we ordered our main courses, 2 ( beaunaise and mushrooms n bacon )of the sauces were not available. On our drinks order, one of the drinks should be a Barcardi and coke, it came just as a coke, when we called the waiter back and said there is no barcardi in the glass, he quickly came back with what we thought was barcardi, but knce mixed we realised it was Malibu. All in all we were not impressed on this occasion, not sure if we will be coming back.

    Having been to the Pint Shop a couple of years ago and being really impressed, I was a bit disappointed this time. Food was delicious but portions were definitely much smaller than before and the meals themselves were not presented well and looked unappetising. Due to this, I would hesitate to come back and maybe try somewhere else. However, service was excellent and ambience was great. Cocktails were nice too.

    Great food and drink however service vary variable - all over us prior to ordering then we were ignored once our mains were cleared. When eventually we were served desserts we had to wait ages for the bill whereupon we had to listen to the server complaining about bad customers! The service experience greatly detracted from what was a very good lunch.

    The service wasn’t the best, with wine not available but only told that when the wrong wine was brought to the table, extra dishes offered that weren’t ordered. Christmas menu was available but wasn’t offered. Portions were small for the cost.

    The food was good but the place lacked atmosphere. When we arrived it was almost empty but still we were put on the worst table in the place. we asked to move and were initially told that the other tables were booked - although none were taken by the time we left. We were then allowed to move. Service was prompt and food arrived quickly - tasty and hot. However, dessert was another matter. I ordered the Affogato only to be told they had no coffee!!!!! I had no dessert and just asked for the bill - which they then overcharged on the credit card machine - a refund was forthcoming when I noticed it but all in all it was a disappointing end to the evening.

    I really enjoy the Pint Shop in Cambridge so we took my son here for lunch for his 21st Birthday. This was a real disappointment. Over what might be expected to be a bustly Sunday lunch there were only 2 tables in operation downstairs and I think only 1 upstairs in the bar. The beer was, as ever, excellent. But the food was not. My flat iron chicken was dubiously pink at one end, my son's chips flaccid and my husband's ribs apparently missing the 'sticky' bit. The poor food and the morgue like ambience was not a great experience.

    Two family members and I went to Pint Shop for an early dinner before a nearby concert. We shared pork belly small plate as a starter. The meat was in small slices served atop some roasted celery root. Very tasty. My entree was the tandoori fish flatbread. The fish was large chunks of salmon and cod. The salmon was particularly good. The fish was topped with roasted eggplant and peppers, and a drizzzle of a spicy glaze. It was all served on a large warm naan, which was very good. Overall it was a bit messy to eat but I’d have it again anyway. My sister in law ordered the green curry chicken. It was served with rice, and the pieces of grilled chicken were separate from the curry, but when mixed together she said it was quite good, mildly spicy. My brother had the flat iron chicken. He asked for chips instead of whatever the side was. The chips were very good, nice and crisp on the outside and seemed freshly made. The chicken was good, but nothing special. We shared a chocolate ginger brownie for dessert. It was really good, dense cake with slivers of crystallized ginger running through it.

    Felt very let down, menu looked excellent, was excited to bring our relatives here whilst they were visiting us, this was thier first visit to Oxford. Our excitement was short lived when one of us asked what bottled beer was available, we order to draught instead - the waiter returned to advise the brayght selected was out, he did not bother to check the bottled beer options. Starters, we ordered three, including the black pudding scotch egg - when they arrived the wrong scotch egg came. This finally arrived just after our mains, we told the staff that this was a starter and therefore we did not want this now, staff challenged this. After mains, we were not offered the desert menu or other drinks or anything, the waiter just looked at us blankly before finally asking if there was anything else he could do. When our bill arrived, we were charged for the beer which was unavailable (more expensive). We left feeling very let down and disappointed and embarrassed for our relatives. Good food and lovely looking restaurant, potential to be great, staff let the whole experience down.

    We went for an early evening meal before going to the Playhouse. The food was excellent - creative, interesting, well-prepared and delicious. My only criticism was that the lighting was dim verging on dingy. Great for late night atmosphere but not quite right in my opinion for early evening (and I’d find it depressing at lunchtime)

    When we arrived on a Saturday lunchtime at 1.30, we were surprised that it was so quiet, as Oxford was heaving outside and in the midst of a heatwave - you might have thought a few more people would have fancied a pint! As you would expect the choice of beer and its quality was second to none. We ordered posh burgers and they were very nice - not much more you can say than that. As we ate the place began to fill up a bit, which improved the ambience.

    Warm welcome on arrival, upstairs bar buzzing. Taken downstairs to restaurant which is quite dark but a lovely ambience. Food was good , not overly priced, portions not too big, would recommend at least two courses but we had three and enjoyed it all. Some dishes were spicier than expected, beware. Overall a great little restaurant for a friend's get together

    usually enjoy a trip to the Pint Shop. Really the beer is the thing to go for. Can't usually go wrong with the overnight pork belly but actually mien was rather unpleasant - fat not really cooked. BUT my son said his steak was the best he had ever had. To be honest the Pint Shop in Cambridge is nicer - but perhaps this one is getting there.

    I spoke to the manager on Wednesday. The service was slow, and drinks were not brought to our table. The starters came in two parts, so two of us had finished it before the others came. Two of the main courses were cold. Despite complaining, it still took 10 minutes for the bill to come.

    Though the ambiance and the waitstaff were lovely the food was very underwhelming. Considering the amount of pride they have in there open grill cooking style the meat lacked in flavour. The duck pancakes tasted did not taste anywhere near as good as the more authentic Chinese style they were based on. The side dish veggies were tasty though, if slightly overpriced for the quantity.

    Amazing food, expensive but you pay for what you get. Felt that the seating was slightly too close together, would have liked a more private table.
