A small, cosy place in the centre of Oxford, out of the way of the bustle, providing superlative game and fish meals.

I am not fully deaf but struggle with loud places. I also like intimate restaurants over lively ones. This place does not have music and although the tables are close together, it is possible to ask for one in a corner. Ring... More
