  • Cuisines

    This venue serves British, European and Sunday Roast food.

  • A word from the chef:

    Our delicious Sunday roasts are extremely popular, make sure you book in advance! Hungry? You’re in the right place. We pride ourselves on homemade dishes cooked to order using the best seasonal ingredients, delivered daily to ensure freshness and quality. We cater for all tastes and offer a tempting selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes as well as standard ‘Tavern-style’ classics, small plates and generous ‘Bar Boards’ ideal for sharing. Have a look at our menu and remember, on a Sunday, we also serve the best roasts in Oxford! You won’t go thirsty, either. We offer a selection of six real ales (with the occasional guest beer on the bar), plus five rotating craft beers. Each time you visit us, there is always a different beer to try and once it’s gone, it really is gone! And it’s not just us who think our beers are special – we are accredited by both Cask Marque and CAMRA LocAle, and you’ll also find us in the Good Beer Guide 2016, plus local Oxford beer guides.
