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!

Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Making a pineapple and walnut cake – a picture guide for beginners
May 26, 2016
These pictures were taken when I made my favourite cake to celebrate twelve years of this blog. The recipe is nothing particularly special or exciting, and now that the Great British Bake-off is such a hit, this is probably incredibly tame, but I thought I’d share it anyway. (At least I’m assuming that’s likely the case – I’ve never actually watched the show apart from one Children-in-need episode.) There’s a possibility you’ve never put pineapple or walnut together in a cake before, and now is your chance to be inspired! …
