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.

Same as usual.
Excellent food, prompt and courteous staff.
The setting by the river is beautiful despite yesterday's heavy rain,even the peacock seemed fed up with the weather!

Party of 13. 10 very good meals. One (pork belly) totally unacceptable as all fat to the extent it resembled puff pastry. One (pizza) only arrived after two reminders and as the other diners were finishing. Pizza however was very good - just late. Overall a disappointing Three stars.
For the way waiting staff handled pork belly complaint - one star.
The topper for the special surprise cake was "lost". It was courierd back to our hotel 24hrs later having been found in a fridge. What use then? Absolutely no stars.

My overseas friend had been before and wanted another visit. Very friendly staff. We were left hanging at the end waiting to pay our bill. Also concerned to see people bringing their dogs into the restaurant area. Keep dogs out please. Fried fish was good but fish was a bit skimpy compared with nice crispy batter. Please drain off oil from fish by standing on paper for longer before serving. We enjoyed our visit and will be back again.

Great staff and the food was good, sadly the crab, prawn and chorizo linguine was missing the crab ?? but the worst area was the toilets - awfully smelly and very dirty - such a shame!

Slow service, further delay as we were showered with a tray of drinks splashing my handbag and contents with red wine, spoiled the enjoyment of our meal as we mopped up and glass was swept up.
