Tucked away amongst the shops and restaurants on Little Clarendon Street, Café Rouge Oxford is a little of slice of Paris right in the heart of the city. With an interior inspired by the rich history of rowing and punting, there's a fantastic boat-style booth as well as a conservatory, large private dining room and a gorgeous outdoor dining area perfect for warmer months!
