Came across this restaurant going to Oxford. It was walking distance from our hotel. Friendly welcome, good food and service. Really lovely ambience. Although not on our visit, there are regular live music nights which sound really good!!

We discovered this gem a year ago and visit whenever we're in Oxford. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful and the food is always excellent. Our steaks last week were so good, we will be keeping Joe's at the top of our restaurant list.
