Let's meet at - The Old Parsonage Hotel, Oxford

Reviewed by Claire Cairns, MD, Bottle PR.

A haven of tranquillity, the Old Parsonage Hotel is a short stroll from Oxford city centre and less than an hour from London.

Despite its urban location, you feel as though you are in a distinguished country retreat. The hotel has parking - always a benefit in the city.

As you walk in through the terrace, you are greeted by staff offering olives and nibbles while you sip your pre-lunch/dinner drink. The atmosphere is relaxed and unrushed, but private dining areas are available should you need a more formal setting.

We usually dine in the main restaurant and choose from the set menu, which offers a choice of three starters and three main courses. These change weekly. The last time I was here I ate devilled herring roes on toast followed by cold cuts of roast beef with grained mustard. Delicious. The fillet steak is also wonderfully tender and served with melt-in-the-mouth hand-cut chips and Bearnaise sauce.

The set menu offers three choices of dessert, but if you eat from the main menu you can also select dessert wines, dessert cocktails or a liqueur coffee.

The high standard of food and service and the relaxed setting means we are free to focus on clients. Whether visiting Oxford for business or pleasure, The Old Parsonage Hotel is a must. Our clients now ask to go there.

Where: 1 Banbury Road, Oxford
Contact: 01865 310210
How much: £12.95 - £15.95
