What a lovely meal. We had the 6 course tasting menu. A birthday treat for my husband. We were not disappointed. Lovely attentive friendly staff who explained each course. The restaurant also sells fabulous cocktails. The cheeses were sublime. The beef was delicious. All of the tastes and textures were delightful. Wish we lived nearer! Fabulous.

We loved eating here and look forward to going back. Food was great and the smoked cheese for the cheese board was really something special! The staff were great, and very accommodating to us and our small baby.

We drove out of London to meet friends who were driving south and the Oxford Kitchen was a perfect place to meet. The food was just amazing and far superior to our central London "locals". The attention to detail is phenomenal but not at the expense of flavour.
The kitchen is obviously run to extremely high standards and the front-of-house team are attentive and cheerful.
We cannot imagine why the team have not been awarded a Michelin star!
We will certainly return as soon as possible

Had dinner here and the presentation was gorgeous, almost seemed a shame to eat the food! Naturally we did and the taste was excellent, a great combination of flavours. Service was attentive and there was a nice atmosphere about the place. Not the cheapest, but still well worth a visit

Honestly can not fault the food at this restaurant! The presentation was gorgeous and every dish that came out had so much thought and effort put into it. Service was average, got the impression that the Waiters and waitresses weren’t too bothered about the experience of their guests. However, the mouthwatering food distracted us from this fault in our evening! Food there is pretty pricey but I will definitely be returning from time to time to try other dishes on the menu!
