We booked a table on a Wednesday evening at 7pm, the service was that quick we'd all had our starters and eaten our mains by 7.30!! It's a nice, clean, friendly place. Worth a visit if you're in oxford.

A fun place with friendly staff and good music, tasty milkshakes and puddings. The food was quite nice, nothing amazing, but a good place to go if you're craving a hunk of meat.

I often go to the Oxford Blue Smokehouse with my boyfriend, we love their ribs but have tried different meats and have never been disappointed. The outside garden is lovely on a sunny day. They also do NHS/police/ fire services discount of 20% on Mondays!...More

Went to the Oxford smokehouse last night for the first time and absolutely loved it. There was a great atmosphere due to the interior design and the music, think American diner, which all added to a great evening. We ordered 2 glasses of red wine,...More

I've always booked before going and if there is a large group they can seat you with enough notice. They seated 16 of us with no issues when we called ahead of time

Authentic American Smokehouse serving homemade burgers, tender steaks and a wide range of meat smoked from 12 - 24 hours. With a fully stocked bar, a variety of cocktails, a fridge full of American bottled beers and even more ales, lagers and ciders on tap, along with many more mocktails, milkshakes and massive challenges; there's nowhere better to release your inner carnivore. Herbivores however, are also both welcome and well catered to, with Chef's Specials, burgers and the best Mac & Cheese in Oxford.
