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!

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
Afternoon tea in Bath

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….
