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.

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!

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
