    Took the 3 course lunch menu. Portions on the small side but that wasn't particularly moot as the food was exquisite. Also staff were courteous without being intrusive. Highly recommend for special occasions.

    Booking simple and easily completed. Food was great. Evening spoiled by 11pm curfew. Staff were bordering on rude to make sure that you exited the premises at 11pm despite offering another bottle of wine at 10.30pm. Meal was also expensive, and tip included means staff do not have to provide service!

    Food was fantastic, service was great but let down by the exorbitant price of the wine. We ordered a bottle of holy snail Sauvignon blanc. It was nice so decided to google it to see more about it. How on earth is it acceptable to charge £40 for a bottle of wine I can buy in store for £10? I will come back as the food is excellent but it has spoiled the experience somewhat

    We had a wonderful lunch at OX. A warm welcome followed by very professional service. We felt very safe considering the current climate. The food was very good, and the wine selection was excellent. Can not recommend our experience highly enough. It was also good value, which is not often the case. Will be back soon.

    The tasting menu was excellent and I particularly liked the veloute and the venison was really good and a well thought out dish. The duck was just cooked to perfection. James, one of the servers was enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed his attitude at the table. Well done everyone loved our experience.
