Perfectly cooked meat and a lovely Sunday roast. As well as this the deserts were fab and especially the truffles. Would recommend to anyone. Perfect service and friendly atmosphere to top it off. 10/10!

We went again to the Oxford Arms for a special menu, last Wednesday's "Fish Night." Can highly recommend the venue, the menu and the ambiance. Delicious food.

A limited menu but the starter was good and the fish main course was fine but rather poorly presented. The restaurant was fairly quiet and the service was excellent. My wife enjoyed her seafood linguine but the portions were very generous
