What a wonderful experience we had at No1 Ship Street. As we entered we were greeted by lovely, friendly staff who welcomed us in and took our coats. The atmosphere felt warm and inviting. We had a table on the ground floor. The restaurant is...More

We each ordered the two-course set lunch - incredible value at £9.95, especially as it was a Saturday. The restaurant felt buzzy and stylish and the food was excellent, as was the service. The new year glasses of Champagne were a welcome treat! We'll be...More

Perfect location for a good food and lovely cocktails after a morning shopping. Staff out of this world helpful. Would highly recommend. Something a bit exclusive in the middle of Oxford.

We’d heard good things, and arrived hopeful. Alas. A curious, unappealing atmosphere in a murky dining room; service by turns inefficient, evasive and, when questioned, surly and snarling. Forty five minutes’ wait, and food extremely mediocre. There are plenty of places serving much better food...More

Had heard good things about this place but never got around to visiting; the location is a bit unusual, away from the standard city-centre eating zones (new trendy spots atop the Westgate mall, ethnic delights along the Cowley Road, more standard party people places along...More

We got the impression the restaurant is unable to manage group bookings. The food was not hot and orders were muddled. When the latter was challenged, we found the staff defensive and inflexible. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant to others and the meal wasn't good...More

Can’t help it, have to keep going back! Best roast pork I think I’ve ever had, crackling was divine, hats off to the chef!! You have to try the devilled kidneys to start, I could eat that as a main! This place has become nicely...More

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
