Our booking was 30 minutes after the tasting menu closes for lunch (we didn't know this). I was excited to try the extensive vegetarian tasting menu and when we asked if they could accommodate us our server flatly replied no. This is understandable, but we...More

I think the only restaurant in Oxford with a Michelin star, which I think is surprising for a City like Oxford! But no matter, Oxford Kitchen offers a selection of tasting menus in the evening, with the option of wine matching, if required. We picked...More

Awarded a Micheline star last year, great cosy restaurant in Summertown. Had several birthday dinners with family, great taster and set menus, very reasonably priced. Recommend highly - this place needs to be booked weeks or months in advance now.

Returned to oxford kitchen for the 3rd time and finally had the tasting menu. A very long yet rewarding experience. Despite having a Michelin star now the prices have stayed the same which is very respectable from their part.

We visited in the Twixtmas period, so it was only a la carte, so may not be typical. We found the food unexciting and bland. It was of good quality, but my wife’s fish was a touch over cooked. The service wasn’t great. We ordered...More

The Jury's at the Wolvercote roundabout is nice and very good value! Short taxi drive or bus ride into the centre of Oxford.

There is no parking unless you are lucky and find a space in the street outside (very unlikely!) There is a council car park 100yds away on the opposite side of the road
