The Alchemist Oxford


Located on the rooftop of the Westgate Centre in Oxford, The Alchemist has the best views in town and around. Enjoy spectacular cocktails and glorious food on their wrap-around terrace.

The brand is renowned for delivering theatre in everything they do. Get ready to sit back and sip on a carefully curated cocktail menu which is guaranteed to charm and entertain. Looking for something out of the ordinary? Sit back and sip on The Cherry Poppins, a raspberry gin-based cocktail with a cherry-infused fog bubble.

The all-day dining food menu consists of classic favourites with an Alchemist twist. Take a well-deserved break from the shops and stop in for a bite to eat. From Plant-Based Bites and Bao Buns to Crispy Curried Fish and Cauliflower Katsu Curry, there's something for everyone, with a great selection of vegan & vegetarian dishes on offer also.

If you're looking for pure indulgence, the venue offers its Alchemy Cocktail Brunch at the weekend from 10am. Enjoy your choice of x3 cocktails and any brunch dish for just £30. Make drinks bottomless for £10 extra.

Or if you're a late-night owl, the venue offers late-night drinks table reservations from 10pm Thursday - Saturday. Order your drinks ahead of time during the booking process and avoid any delays on your night out. Search Alchemist After Dark for more information.
