Fine Dining Oxford
The philosophy at the Old Parsonage is simple: to serve the very best seasonal food using the best produce to create superb mouth watering dishes. Service is friendly, personal and informed without being overbearing. The accompanying wine list is designed to bring you the best wine at reasonable prices and for you to be confident that each wine you choose will be great. The Old Parsonage is the perfect place for an informal lunch as well as ideal for a celebratory afternoon tea or dinner.
The restaurant and bar with their Russian red walls, covered with original cartoons and interesting portraits are open from breakfast until late. Serving British classics in a bohemian, club like atmosphere you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner or just pop in for a drink. In summer dining moves to the famous walled terrace. As well as being the best place for afternoon tea in Oxford the Old Parsonage is a favourite for many of the local academics for an informal lunch and a bottle of great wine.
Head chef, Tom Mansfield adapts traditional recipes and devises new ones to provide a range of seasonal dishes that will appeal to everyone. Start with our legendary lobster & saffron tart, watercress soup with cucumber relish or ginger beer battered goats cheese, apple, celery & walnut salad.
