The food was poor in flavour and size. The bill was wrong and we had to point out we hadn’t had items on the bill. I would maybe go for a drink but I wouldn’t eat there again.

The Castle has retained its old charm under the new management. The lighting is perfect and the windows overlooking a busy street are a delight. The staff were welcoming and attentive. I shall certainly go again.

Quiet business lunch in a central Oxford location. Friendly staff and the booking via OpenTable worked well.

Went to Oxford for the weekend and we were just looking for somewhere near to our apartment with good food. Great burgers, great chips, really thick batter on the fish and chips, and really lovely staff, with a good knowledge on all the food and drink

Took ages to get the food (well over an hour) and then it was over cooked.

Food was very good, chips delicious, very slow service I would order food before the drinks. Will be going back as the food quality was excellent.

Despite booking, our table was not available when we arrived. As there were 5 of us, we were disappointed to be sat on 2 tables and not all together.

Food took a while to come, and was dry & overcooked, but we’ve certainly had worse elsewhere.

Decor was high standard and ambience was good with a good selection of ales.
