A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford

Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford

My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….

I’d had a big breakfast and walked the three miles into town, so after I’d done a little sight-seeing it was early afternoon when I sat down to eat and the restaurant was pleasantly quiet. I had a table with a view of the street and it was nice to people-watch as everyone went about their day outside. The service was friendly and fast and my food came really quickly too.

Starter at The Mitre

I was pretty hungry so I decided to treat myself to a starter. I almost never have a starter! (If it’s a choice between the two; pudding usually wins!) I had sticky duck wings and four came on the plate with plenty of meat on them and were very tasty.

Main course at The Mitre, Oxford

For my main course I chose the mushroom risotto and paid just a pound extra to have a very decent sized portion of chicken on the top. (Tip – if you’re there when the lunch and dinner menu times overlap, this is cheaper on the daytime saver menu!)

The decor of The Mitre is fine; perhaps a little old-fashioned, but so are most things in Oxford and that’s just the way I like it! I’d much rather traditional like that than they tried to make it all modern. All in all, I had a lovely meal; very good quality; presented prettily and excellent value. If you’re visiting the city and wondering where to eat in Oxford, then I’d definitely recommend you stop here.

For more information about Oxford, I’ve written about all the places I visited last year and individual posts about the museums from when we visited as a family a couple of years before that. Follow this link to see the list of all my blog posts about Oxford.

If you have any more cafe or restaurant recommendations for Oxford, please let me know in the comments as I’m hoping to go back soon. Thank you!

Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
