A group of girlfriends and I took a trip to Oxford with the main attraction being lunch at Jo Seagars but we were disappointed. There was a very limited menu with nothing really catching our eye, we all ended up ordering the Haymakers Pie which was bacon and egg pie which was nice but very small with a tasteless side salad for $17. The service was OK but nothing memorable. We ended up going next door to Sugar for cake and coffee and the lunch options looked much more inviting there.

avoid this cafe, the food is way overpriced ..$22.00 for a prawn salad made with a few shreds of lettuce and bulk frozen, tasteless prawns, the coffee was ok but for 4 of us ..too expensive and nothing special.

Lacklustre is the best description I can apply to our dining experience at this cafe. The welcome, the service, the decor were all lacklustre. The menu was small and one of our party had to choose again as their original choice was not available- in itself this is to be expected but with such a small menu the chance of finding a second pick you're happy with diminishes. The person who owns this place is well known as a chef, but this cafe doesn't represent a professional approach to hospitality.

One of those places where you are greeted and directed to a table then left to twiddle your thumbs.
Need to sort this as the first few mins is high risk time for people walking out
But - and it is a positive But - Food was superb and we don't often say that!

But lunch menu suited - quiche- tasty with delightfully delicate crust
- soup tasty presentation
-smoked chicken & asparagus salad. Asparagus off as out if season - why leave on menu? Almost didn't order as not asparagus fan but salad came with courgette strips and crunch mixed green salad with delicate green dressing - a delight
