Vegan menu is yummy! During the summer I asked to have the Vegan Burger outside (even though the burger hut outside is separate from the restaurant they did it!) Delicious.

Nice meal again - our second visit here. Food was good quality and portion sizes about right. Staff were pleasant and outside area undercover was heated well. I’m sure we will return when back in Oxford.

I have been here many times. It is always good. Service friendly and efficient. Good range of main courses. Every time I eat here, the food is excellent. Probably one of the finest gastropubs in the area.
