A “perfect” location right in the centre of town is one of the draws to this “spacious” and “buzzy” fixture, set in the Old Bank Hotel, and also profiting from a “lovely” rear terrace. It’s one of the more commented-on spots in town, although the “well thought-out” brasserie fare is arguably “solid”“nothing wrong with it”. Still, it’s “worth booking to avoid disappointment” (not least come graduation, when it tends to “get packed”).

The “modern brasserie” in the central Old Bank Hotel serves “interesting, well thought-out dishes with a bit of pizzazz” in a “nice room – not too formal but equally quite smart”. It’s “such a pleasant place to eat: the food is not fancy and overworked but properly and consistently cooked”, and “the prices are very reasonable”. “Service is pleasant and efficient without being particularly friendly – like the food, they get the job done.”

“Where Oxford goes to feel at home” – this “large, sophisticated venue with a buzzy atmosphere” and “lovely courtyard” in the city centre’s Old Bank Hotel serves “food that’s never over-worked and always great value”. “Celebrated our civil partnership here with our witnesses not long ago – where else?”

“Right in the heart of Oxford”, this “busy” and well-known bistro (part of the Old Bank Hotel) with a “lovely courtyard”, has a solid reputation for “cooking that’s not fancy but reliable and decent value”. Attractions include “an excellent breakfast with first-rate coffee”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
