New Road
OX1 1AY

Krispy Kremes Donuts has been swankified into this wine bar in the Oxford Castle complex. Serves light bites, coffee and (obviously) wine. 25% off during happy hour Mon - Thurs 5pm - 6.55pm.

Although I still mourn the loss of Krispy Kreme, 1855 wine bar is a worthy replacement. Slightly hidden in the Castle complex... read more

Oxford High Street, outside Scrivens Opticians

A new kebab van on the High Street offering food and drink, including some organic choices.

I was missing the original taste of the Doner kebab so much since my movement from Germany to UK. Finally there is a GREAT... read more

High Street (opposite Catte St)
Oxford

Traditional kebab van. Rumoured to have fed a Univ College student kebabs through his window, which looked out onto the van. The student spent a year unable to resist the smell of tasty fried food and Ahmed was most obliging, saving the student a round trip of approximately 200 yards (360 metres).

Wow! What a van, if indeed it should be called a van - more apt would be a mobile restaurant! Sooo much choice! Where else... read more

192 Abingdon Road

6 Park End Street
Oxford
OX1 1HH

Belly-dancing, shisha, and a very wide variety of mezze-style dishes (like Lebanese tapas) make this restaurant very popular. Special offers at different times of year include Christmas and Valentine's.

Delivery available through Deliveroo.

Al-Salam is one of my favourite restaurants in Oxford - the food is always really tasty (their tabbouleh is the best I've had... read more

25 Walton Crescent

Oxford
OX2 6AU

New bookstore with a lively calendar of readings, music and more, including bookbinding sessions. Now opens late on weekends.

Love the venue, love the music, hate the beer. ... read more

On the Woodstock Road
(opposite St Anne's)

Very handily-placed by the bus-stop, this van lures in late night drinkers after a night in the Royal Oak. So many of their clientele are students that the van is not always there outside term-time, especially on weekdays.
Good chips, and they do a nice chilli sauce.

I've come all the way from sunny Doncaster to sample the superb kebabs and I can honestly admit that they are the tastiest I have... read more

124 High Street
Oxford
OX1 4DF

Stylish in a clean, chain bar kind of way. Large enough to mean there is nearly always somewhere to sit down. Former premises of Russell Acott - instruments and sheet music sales, 1894-1999 - as the tiled mosaic on the doorway floor testifies.

Having only ever glanced into All Bar One through their huge glass windows, I didn't realise quite how large the place is! It... read more

89 Covered Market
Avenue 3
Oxford

Take-away sandwich and salad bar serving natural and organic foods. Very busy at lunchtime, especially in the summer.

This salad and hot food bar at the back of the covered market is in my experience pretty reliable. I went to get a takeaway staff... read more

After a morning visiting the excellent Titian to Canelletto exhibition today, I went to the busy and very noisy basement caf... read more

Ashmolean Museum
Beaumont Street
Oxford
OX1 2PH

'Rustic, regional European dishes made from fresh local ingredients...80 handpicked wines'. On the top floor of the museum, this rather classy venue has an outdoor rooftop terrace (highly enjoyable on a hot day but rather exposed in inclement weather). It's always busy, and it's definitely worth booking in advance (although if it's full you can always go down to the comfortably proletarian café in the basement). Dress is usually smart-casual and there's rarely a toddler in sight. The Dining Room can be hired outside museum opening hours, and will take up to 100 people for a drinks reception, 70 for a seated dinner and 80 for an informal buffet.

We went on a Saturday to taken advantage of a Groupon offer. The restaurant was less than half full and the staff were friendly... read more

B

Royal Oxford Hotel
Park End Street
Oxford
OX1 1HR

Oxford's only Korean restaurant, located in Royal Oxford Hotel. Seats 100, private room available. Korean food is not just Chinese by another name - so this is one for the adventurous of spirit. But we hear it's authentic and very rare - there are only a couple in London and one in Birmingham.

I've never been particularly keen on the idea of hotel restaurants. Perhaps too much television is to blame, since they always... read more

Northgate Hall
St Michaels Street
Oxford
OX1 2DU

Bill started out as a greengrocer, then opened a café and now has a chain of restaurants. So the emphasis is on good produce. It's gastropub style food, and they sell jars of Bill's pickle and suchlike. Now doing breakfasts. Menus are helpfully labelled gluten-free, dairy-free, veggie and vegan, and nutty. But the labelling doesn't necessarily translate into a lot of choice, for instance none of the breakfasts are gluten-free. However they do offer the option of gf toast, so hopefully they can make something to suit.

Dining out is a special treat for most, so if you want something that looks fancy but serves standard food for reasonable prices... read more

Something of an Oxford institution (we remember the chocolate milkshakes the size of our heads when we were five). Browns serves predominantly English cuisine, with the odd Mediterranean ingredient.

I visited Browns with a friend on Saturday afternoon, hoping to have a cup of tea and a piece of cake. But once seated, I was... read more

Pleasant, old-fashioned venue with good food at reasonable prices (hence lots of business lunchers to be spotted). Lots of interior nooks and crannies supplemented by a heated & covered all-year-round courtyard, popular (and leafy, Mediterranean-feeling, and uncovered) in summer. The 'cottage' at the end of the garden is available for hire for meetings etc.

In long-standing landlord Andrew's own words, "the R&C is as renowned for what it does have, as it is for what it doesn't - no games machines, no music machines and no televisual aids!". Up until a few years ago, mobile phones were barred from the premises and it was strictly cash only at the bar, although times do change, and the R&C now has free wi-fi and accepts card payments.

The landlord is as welcoming as ever, and this is definitely a traditional pub with a traditional landlord - one of the most traditional you will possibly find, in fact. They serve pub food including pies and Sunday roasts - it's a pub that serves food, not a gastropub.

You can even take a walk through the pub on Google Street View!

The African & African-Caribbean Kultural Heritage Initiative promotes the cultural heritage of peoples of African and African Diasporic heritage and descent. A delicious part of this project is their Wednesday lunchtime community pop-up restaurant at the East Oxford community centre. The menu changes weekly; there are usually 3 meat options, 1 fish and 1 veggie, and everything comes with deliciously garlicky rice and peas. Service is friendly but you may have quite a wait for your food - don't try to eat here if you have to rush off somewhere soon. If you have time for a luxuriously lazy lunch, however, the food is substantial and tasty, the atmosphere is vibrant and cheerful and it's well worth a visit.
