Harden's survey result
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”.
“Gee’s is always relaxing and enjoyable”; “despite the staff turnover each time, the service and the overall atmosphere remain friendly and welcoming” at this north Oxford venture in a striking Victorian glasshouse. The food was consistently well-rated this year.
The “unusual and stunning” Victorian glasshouse setting is the stand-out feature of this “chic-casual” north Oxford spot. As ever there’s the odd quibble that it’s below par and too pricey, but fans – who find it a good all-rounder – were more in evidence this year.
