“Just on the edge of central Oxford”, this “lovely” listed Victorian conservatory (“twinkly in the evenings”) has been a local favourite for many years and is a natural choice for romance. Even fans, though, concede it’s “not cheap” to an extent that’s a turn-off for one or two reporters.

A “lovely” Grade II listed Victorian conservatory provides a very “attractive setting” at this well-known and highly popular venue. But despite some reports of “fine” meals, most feedback suggests it’s “living on past glories” – including a stint as Raymond Blanc’s original Petit Blanc – while “Oxford has improved overall” (“humdrum menu and humdrum cooking”).

This “very busy” long-established Victorian glasshouse in north Oxford makes “an exceptional venue for a meal” and, as ever, there’s a strong theme in feedback: it’s “a lovely environment but overpriced for what it is”, with food that’s “OK” (but “surely they could do better”) and service that’s “always friendly” but “occasionally slow”.

For 30 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).
