* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This very “attractive hotel” just north of the city centre makes good use of a “lovely” seventeenth-century building with an ambience redolent of “Oxford academic power and money”. Foodwise, the ratings are dragged down by the odd reporter who feels its “bog-standard brasserie food needs more competition”. The best bet might be its “very nice traditional tea – especially when served in the courtyard garden”.

For 32 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).

"Food bog standard brasserie - good souffle, but the magret de canard hideously overcooked and therefore chewy; quite hard to do. Wine good and ambience - Oxford academic power and money in a lovely building - quite attractive. But needs more competition. "
