In an elegant 4-star hotel setting, 66A Restaurant @ Cotswold Lodge Hotel in Oxford serves classic British dishes. The owner’s farm provides much of the fresh produce used, and a pretty Mediterranean-style courtyard and terraces make for relaxed al fresco dining.

66A Restaurant’s large bay windows and high ceilings provide a civilised backdrop to enjoy starters of smoked chicken and Parmesan risotto, and langoustines with olive and chilli salad. Sirloin steak and rack of lamb are joined by vegetarian choices including artichoke, bell pepper and courgette tart on the 66A Restaurant menu.

Desserts are delicious and original, with poached pineapple in ginger and basil with lemon crème fraiche just one indulgent offering. At weekends, 66A Restaurant offers a sumptuous Sunday lunch menu.

Also serving breakfast and afternoon tea, 66A Restaurant @ Cotswold Lodge Hotel is an exquisite dining experience in the heart of historic Oxford. The restaurant is a 6-minute drive from Oxford Train Station.

    Afternoon tea was great

    My group and I have visited your restaurant several (5-6) times over the past year, we did feel that last night there were a few things not as good as previously - the food was excellent taste and presentation however was not very hot (one of our group did mention this at the time). One of our group ordered a side salad which did not arrive - she did mention it and wasn't charged for it. Perhaps minor points but felt worth mentioning.

    On 1 November I booked a table for myself and a friend for afternoon tea for 3.00pm on 4 November in the Drawing Room. On arrival I was told that there was a meeting in the Drawing Room and we should go in the bar. There was one table empty, not a proper 'sit at' table but a very low coffee table, the other tables occupied by people having meetings of some sort or other and was very noisy. When I was asked if everything was okay I said 'no' and said that where we were supposed to sit was not suitable for afternoon tea. We were then told we could go into the restaurant, which we did. Surely whoever booked us in should have known that it was not possible to have our tea in the Drawing Room yesterday??

    The sandwiches and pieces of cake were fine but I had to ask the waiter if we could have some jam for the scones. We were asked which jam we would like, strawberry, blackcurrant or raspberry. We asked for strawberry, the usual one for scones and jam only to be told when the waiter came back that there was no strawberry available. This was after the hotel advertising on their afternoon tea menu that the scones are served with strawberry conserve. Surely, when someone books for afternoon tea, someone checks to see that everything on the menu is available. It didn't matter anyway as the scones were very heavy and solid in texture and I left most of mine as I had to keep washing it down with tea.

    One of the reasons I went to the Cotswold Lodge was to find out if it was a suitable place for me to take my daughter-in-law and friends and family for an afternoon tea to celebrate her 50th birthday but I would certainly not go back there again.

    We booked tea for 2 in the lovely cosy drawing room. Greeted by a friendly waitress who took our tea order. When tea came the crockery was odd the teapot was old stained stainless steel. Then the three plates of food came. two scones if you can call them that, just seemed like two lumps of dough that had been overcooked. Fingers sandwiches that were a bit hard at the ends and two tarts each that were not very good at all. For this kind of establishment it was a real let down. Only glad we paid £8-95 each but even then that was too much. We often have tea in the area but will not be returning. Shame as it seems a lovely hotel.

    The Food, Service, Location was excellent

  • (((** by from Sheffield

    The food was generally very good, however I had duck as the main, it was over cooked and rubbery. (I wasnt' asked how I liked it) The service was friendly and relaxed however the service skills weren't in line with a restaurant of this calibre which let the overall experience down. For example I left the majority of the duck and it wasn't questioned. Lack of attention to detail.
