Dismissed by some as a mere university town, Oxford is very much its own city in central southern England, and while it revolves around its esteemed university which was founded way back in the 12th century, there’s a lot more to Oxford if you give it a chance. With 38 different colleges in the medieval centre of the city, you’re never too far from stunning architecture, spires, churches, libraries, bridges and more. And with so many restaurants across Oxford, you can punctuate sightseeing, tours or just a wander around the city, with meals at all sorts of different restaurants, cafes and gastropubs. Whether you’re visiting University College and Magdalen College just off the High Street, taking in the city views from Carfax Tower or soaking up the beauty at the Botanic Garden on the River Cherwell, you’re never too far from a great restaurant in Oxford, and Quandoo will help you pick the best one!
You could eat a different type of cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for a week at Oxford’s restaurants without ever encountering the same meal, or type of food twice. Such is the range of varied cuisine at Oxford restaurants that locals and visitors are completely spoilt for choice when eating out. Whether you’re looking for a steakhouse or a curry house, or if you can’t decide between pizza, pub grub, tapas or Thai, Quandoo will point you in the right direction – and before you know it you’ll be sitting down to a tasty meal at one of Oxford’s many restaurants.
Vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs can very frequently find it hard to eat out out. Fears that there may be some forbidden ingredients in dishes usually mean that people avoid a spot instead of heading there for a bite to eat. For example, vegans and vegetarians would generally avoid what seems like a burger joint for fear of there not being any veggie-friendly options. However, at restaurants in Oxford this simply isn’t the case. With allergens clearly-marked on menus, it’s easy to navigate eating out at Oxford’s restaurants. For those who are gluten-free (either by necessity or by choice), you’ll find lots of restaurants with gluten-free dishes on their menus, as well as spots that can swap regular bread, pasta or noodles in dishes for substitutes such as gluten-free bread, corn pasta and rice noodles. Helpful and friendly staff await you at restaurants in Oxford, who will gladly guide you through their menus and help you make the right choice when deciding what to eat.
So you want to head out for a spot of grub at one of Oxford’s restaurants, but where to go? Visit Côte Brasserie - Oxford for a fantastic French brunch, or huge steak served medium-rare with lashings of garlic butter. Fancy a curry?
