The Oxford Hotel is an iconic Adelaide pub/hotel that stands proudly on the corner of Tynte and O'Connell Street in the cosmopolitan North Adelaide, currently experiencing a revival. Close to the city and the newly completed football park - it's fast becoming a favourite hot spot. The Oxford Hotel has a relaxed and eclectic feel, surrounded with stunning mural art, combined with excellent presentation and consistency of food. The menu has great contemporised pub classics as well as gourmet specials and lighter options. With one of the best function rooms Adelaide has to offer, incuding with it's own private bar, pool table and balcony, it'svery popular with all types of parties. The Oxford Hotel can cater for any occasion - the perfect venue for product launches, engagements, 21st birthday parties, corporate events and any other special occasion that seeks a little class and uniqueness without breaking the budget. See our website for our fabulous testimonials! The restaurant menu also proudly includes excellent Vegetarian and Vegan options and our hard working and freindly chefs are more than happy to adjust a dish for dietary requirements where possible. There's the special 30% off lunch menu from Mon-Fri, and absolutely fabulous brunch from 10am-3pm on weekends! The dining room is open 7 days a week 12-3pm and 6-9pm, with selected share and cheese platters available all day on weekends (especially Sundays with Live Music). We've had travellers come from far and wide and they make a point of coming back again and again. We look forward to serving you!
