  • Outside the ring road
    Pub
    Pretty as a picture both inside and out, The Six Bells in Thame is the quintessential country pub in Thame - think roaring fires, a wonderful garden, real ale on tap and superb Pub food in our fantastic restaurant.
  • Central
    Café
    Inspired by the Swedish forest (skogen) this café offers delicious Scandinavian cuisine in a cool and calm space. The inspiration comes from our cosy little summerhouse on the south coast of Sweden where generations of the Andersson family have enjoyed summers for over 40 years. We wanted to capture a feeling of the calm woodland and glorious coastline and share with you the fresh cuisine of cured fish, fantastic cheese, artisan bread and healthy salads.

    Restaurant
    Chef Jack Greenall creates dishes, especially focussing on Cajun, Middle Eastern, Indian and modern British cuisines. After four years as a roaming pop-up Smoke and Thyme is mostly to be found at home in Marston, at an intimate 18-seat venue. But it's still popping up at larger venues on occasion - see website for details. Booking is essential, and early booking is recommended: it has a loyal following of repeat diners!

    This small chain has luxurious coffee shops in Bath, Bristol, Oxford and London, with added art magazines to inspire you as you recharge and caffeinate yourself.

    Restaurant
    They are noted for their Dim Sum (Chinese equivalent of tapas) and have been reviewed favourably in national papers. It incorporates the former Mongolian Wok Bar - where you pick your raw ingredients and they are sizzled for you on a giant Mongolian Wok (metre-wide hotplate) while you watch. Excellent if you like to know exactly what you're eating! SoJo's sister restaurants are Cafe Orient on Cowley Road, and The Opium Den.

    Contemporary Indian cuisine. Delivery available through Deliveroo.
  • Cowley Road Area

    Apart from a brief hiatus when it was called something else, The Standard has been serving curries to Oxford restaurants since 1972, and is much beloved by student groups, for rowing club dinners and the like. It's fairly Standard (!) Indian restaurant fare, a little pricey, but with a good vegetarian selection.

    Nice little restaurant offering decent Japanese cuisine and sushi. Can order online, and they give you something for free for every £15 you spend!
  • West of the ring road
    Pub
    Situated alongside the attractive Windrush River and very much at the heart of the local village community in Swinbrook, The Swan has a rich history associated with it. The Inn is owned by the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire’s estate, the last of Mitford sisters, and – along with the neighbouring cottage – forms the residual part of the estate inherited by the family at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Photographs around the pub celebrate the connections to the Mitfords and village life.

    Restaurant
    Japanese specialty: sushi, ramen & bento
  • Cowley Road Area
    Restaurant
    Serves Littlemore, Temple Cowley and Blackbird Leys, with deliveries across Oxford. Their food is Caribbean and halal, and seems pretty authentic.
  • Cowley Road Area
    Restaurant
    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.
