The Oxford Blue dates back to the 1800’s. Originally two game keepers cottages, it was then converted into a traditional Inn and has served the local community ever since, in a number of different guises.
Acquired in 2015 by Chef Proprietor, Steven Ellis, the property has undergone a magnificent transformation marrying the finest elements of tradition with modern practicalities and comfort.
Our dishes are based upon tradition and comfort, yet presented with a modern twist. We are working with some of the United Kingdom’s most established suppliers to ensure that we use only the highest quality ingredients.

The service was a little pretentious, nothing wrong with that – just needs to be toned down a little. The food was fine, other than the roast potatoes. This was pointed out to the waiter. Overall the ambience and dining experience was 4 stars

Another great meal at the Oxford Blue. We took from the set lunch menu again; whilst it was a little disappointing that the starters and mains hadn’t changed since the last visit (May); the meal was delicious so no real complaints. The desserts were new and superb! Really love this place!

Oxford Blue tops the list of my favourite restaurants for the delicious and creative food,
the friendly and helpful staff, and the overall atmosphere. It never disappoints. I was
surprised, though, to find they now charge for "filtered" water - essentially tap water.
As it isn't inexpensive, I would have thought they should not charge for the water.
Otherwise, we had a delightful and happy time.

The Oxford Blue was as good as remembered from our previous visit. It has a lovely ambiance and I love the way the waiters bring all the food at the same time. We all had different meals and were envious of each other. Well done.

The midweek oxford blueless

No blue cheese on offer for the cheeseboard - “run out”
4th time we’ve been , food is alway good, however the menu rarely changes significantly to give you a reason to go back more regularly.
Service is always “perfect”, if you’ve been you’ll know what I mean.
Lovely range of wines
1st time we’ve been mid week, just wasn’t the all round polished performance we had come to expect.
Maybe we’ll go back again but keep it to weekends.

Service in this restaurant is fantastic, great attention to detail and everyone is really friendly and helpful. Food wasn't as good as last time we went. We felt it was a bit too fussy with too many flavours, my Haddock was a bit over-cooked. Not saying I wouldn't go again, but it was over-priced for the quality received.

We were a table of five on a classic car trip, we all eat at great restaurants all over the world and this was exceptional by any standard. The staff were informed, knowledgable and attentive and the food delicious. I had the seafood rarebit followed by Halibut which was perfectly prepared, as we knew each other well we soon began swapping food to try each dish it was that good.

I felt the service was a little over the top, eccentric and slightly annoying. Good service is attentive but only when you want it, they just kept interrupting. Food was ok not much selection as a veggie, quite small portions for main meal and very expensive. £64 each for a starter, main course and one glass of wine.

Another excellent meal at the Oxford Blue. Superb food and service. I have been several times now with different groups/ people and always receive a very warm welcome (a very attentive team run superbly by General Manager Daniel) and a very enjoyable meal.

This was the first time we have tried the set lunch which was very good value for money - fresh, seasonal produce, generous portions all served beautifully.

Always looking for an excuse to go back!

I rarely take time out to write reviews, but the Oxford Blue is an exception. Not only is the environment truly unique with it's family feel and cosy "country lodge" interior, but the staff and managers are the most accommodating individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting. Having dined in Michelin starred restaurants globally - the Oxford Blue is a contender for them all. Exceptional food - every detail covered and every effort undergone to create a sensational plate of food. Highly recommend the mushroom tartlet as a starter followed by the ham hock pie - simple dishes turned into fine dining comfort food (the menu changes very frequently - another comforting touch). Special mention to Daniel - the GM - whose attention to detail and rapport with customers is second to none; alongside Margriet, who's knowledge of wines ensures you always have the perfect pairing. What's more, the environment is sophisticated and yet homely, meaning you can truly relax and treat it like your local - a fact that's reinforced by each and every one of the lovely staff they have working there.

I always recommend OB to anyone I meet - well worth the drive if you're not local, and 100% worth the time. You will not be disappointed!

This restaurant is trying too hard to be different.
It is one thing to take a modern slant on a traditional dish but it is not acceptable to advertise and serve Jersey Royal potatoes on the menu when the season hasn't started because of cold weather. That is a trade description matter and is unacceptable. Also to serve 'cheese board' with crumbs of cheese and a teaspoon is quite frankly taking the p
