Went for lunch on Sunday and sat outside in the garden. Pleasant lunch although you hear the buses running on Banbury road. The food was nicely presented and tasted very good. Cocktail was good and service very attentive.

A very pleasant setting near the centre of Oxford, if a bit too close to a busy main road. That's where the positives dried up. We waited at least twenty minutes for two bowls of soup. A cheeky head waitress suggested that they had gone...More

Visited the Old Parsonage to celebrate my parents Diamond Wedding anniversary. We were treated with a very warm reception ensuring my parents who are both in their 80's felt very special. We choose from the afternoon high tea menu and were not disappointed. A great...More

What a lovely time we had. The service was excellent. The food was exceptional, mackerel terrine was Devine and salmon to follow for myself. My partner had goats curd for starters and followed with rabbit pie. Both were outstanding.

A unique combination of disdainful staff, poor cooking and overpriced food. Was good once (...and I've been many times...), but definitely a "no go" now.
