Visit Oxford a lot and used to find this pub very special in an amazin location overlooking the thames, boats and swans. It used to be wonderful with great specials but the last time we visited it was poor, understaffed with lots of dirty tables. We decided to try it for my daughters graduation but found it poor again. Luckily the odd few staff around were very nice but terribly low in numbers and stressed, and the food after a very long queue and wait was nice but lots of people gave up waiting and the cluttered tables and no beers/ ciders was unacceptable.
I wish I could eat here every day. From the cocktails, to soup, to appetizer, and entrée, this is one of the best meals I have ever had. Order many plates and share. Must do the Scottish traditional small plate sampler and the lamb... oh that lamb... has me drooling from across the pond.
Found the staff nice and friendly. Some issues with the orders, one of which was quickly corrected, the other missed a major component of the sandwich, which came with a 'salad' - bit of a generous term for a few leaves with a bit of oil+vinegar on, but they were v fresh. Cocktails were good although the fruit with them was a bit sorry looking. Bit of a shame overall but this part of eldon square struggles for footfall now compared to the rest. Nice and quiet if this is what you are after.
Not very happy with the unhelpfull staff in the ladies dept even though I was spending £450 on a wedding outfit. However this was more than made up for by Chris on ground floor check out. He was so lovely and helpfull and found me a massive hat box for my wedding hat and lovely wedding shoes were half price. Magic thanks Chris you are a star. Xxx
Good central location with a trendy, studenty feel to it. Lots of discounts available for hair appointments, and loyalty cards for full price. Can get quite loud and busy. Unfortunately beauty services are lacking in discounts and availability can be tight so book early.
I found all the staff very pleasant, polite and friendly. We didn't have to wait to long for our order to come,which was good as both its of and wife were starving. All in all 10/10 for both service and food .
