I went to Turl Street Kitchen at 6.00pm today, as I needed somewhere to eat between two appointments that meant I couldn't get home. I waited for over five minutes at the reception desk, in full view of four members of staff, two of whom walked straight past me. All four ignored me, so I left and had a very... More

I turned up here about 8pm on a Friday evening. It was packed out, which is always a good sign. They found me a spot at the bar, which was great and I could people watch, which I love. I ordered a beer and beef with potatoes and veg. Arrived really quick and was excellent. Food tasted fantastic and atmosphere... More

I don't remember a single visit when I would be disappointed. Very good food, smart and friendly team and refreshing approach to "fine dining". Strongly recommend.

On a previous short visit to Oxford we came here twice for lunch we liked it so much. This time it was a pre-show dinner with friends. We all had different things, plaice, trout, pork and beef all excellent. Two of us had puddings and two the £3 cheese and oatcakes offer. We never had any worries that we would... More

We popped in to TSK as I believe the students call it for a drink and some food. Unfortunately we had to be somewhere at 7, and they hadn't yet written the menu (it changes daily with whatever they buy and prepare - a good sign). So, we sat at the bar and had a couple of wines. The gin... More

Sunday morning breakfast. Full english. Sausage tasteless, bacon tasteless. Fried eggs left too runny over yolk. Coffee took an age to come. Simple decor, relaxed. Service on slow side. Could be improved.

We chose plaice and smoked haddock fishcakes; the plaice looked as if it had been reheated rather than freshly cooked, and the smoked haddock content of the fishcakes was barely distinguishable. Two cheeses at £3 each came in very small portions; but at least the sticky toffee pudding was fine! Quick and pleasant service, but the 10% service charge is... More

Tried to order a cap and cake from the counter on the cafe side but was told to take a seat and someone would take the order. Fair enough and the cafe was not busy with just 4 or 5 other people who did seem to have coffee. So I sat down and waited, and then I waited some more,... More

We arrived at 9.30pm and service was still friendly, attentive and rapid although the place was still busy. My potted mackerel starter was good and my Chalk Stream trout was very very good - fresh, full of flavour and beautifully cooked. My daughter ordered chips for herself and I couldn't leave them alone - I would guess prepared from scratch... More
