Luxurious yet full of character, the converted prison at Malmaison Oxford serves sumptuous, modern British delicacies. With a peaceful al fresco terrace, a sleek under-lit bar and clean-cut furnishings, there are dining options aplenty for any British weather.

Serving modern reinventions of classic local cuisine, the Malmaison menu is committed to sourcing the best produce in the region. Sophisticated yet accessible, a beautifully presented a la carte selection foregrounds bold, wholesome flavours. Tasty vegetarian options and succulent fish dishes are served, as well as sublime New York strip steak cuts.

For a relaxed tone, diners can head to the sleek bar. Subdued and atmospheric, a cosmopolitan selection of cocktails showcases signature creations from the Mal mixologists, alongside a well-balanced range of world wines.

Housed in an enchanting, historic building, The Brasserie at the Oxford Mal maintains original features, like arched doorways and metal staircases. Oxford Rail Station is 10 minutes' walk away.

    Nice food and good service. Had pre drinks in the garden at the back. All in all a very good experience.

    Really nice place and very impressed with how much effort they had put into executing the presentation of the dining hall and individual tables. The food was lovely, however service was incredibly slow. We sat down at 2pm, didn't receive our tea until 3pm, and although a member of staff apologised to us for the wait when the food did come and promised the scones would be out in just a minute, I had to go and ask when we would be receiving them 45 minutes later. The scones themselves were delicious and warm, just a shame they were so small. In addition to this, the waitress couldn't tell us what the vegetarian options were so that further delayed everything.

    The staff did adjust our bill due to us waiting so long which was appreciated, but it was a shame about all the delays as it was a treat for my mother for her birthday. In the two hours we were there, we saw many other tables arrive, sit, eat, and leave just whilst we were waiting for our food.

    The champagne was delightful as well!

    OK but too much sweet stuff, smoothie not very nice, room for tea not as pleasant as could be, dirty floors. gluten free was OK but we both would have preferred sandwiches.
