Set on the bank of the River Thames, against the picturesque backdrop of Wolvercote, The Trout is an historic building which traces its roots to the 17th century. Now offering al fresco dining and serving modern British cuisine, this cosy, country pub and the riverbank it sits on have provided inspiration for literary gems such as Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Trout restaurant menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Trout bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Trout in Oxford is a 10-minute drive from Oxford Railway Station.

    It was the hottest day of the year so far and very busy but the staff were great. They didn't push us to hurry and the meal superb.

    Booked a table via Bookatable which was nice and easy for 12.30 Monday lunchtime. When we arrived, there was noone at the front to book us in and show us to our table. We waited 10-15 mins before someone came to the front and booked us in and the guy who booked us in wasn't exactly welcoming. Once we were sat down, the waiter was very friendly and the service was very good. The food was good quality and I was very pleased with my meal.
