Weekend in Oxford - any recent updates?

bdachow | Aug 16, 2010 11:49 AM

I'll be spending a weekend visiting a friend living there now. I've read some of the old threads and there seems be a consensus that Oxford is a bit of a "culinary wasteland". Lol.

So recs include Moya, Chiang Mai (although there was mention that At Thai next door was better now). Le Manoir but that's out of Oxford, how far by car? Doable by taxi? Nut Tree as well, not sure how far that is?

Any additional comments on Jamies Kitchen? I'm not from the UK and have never eaten at one, is it really that horrible or is just because it's a chain? I don't always find that chain food is dreadful, sometimes there are a couple of redeeming dishes.

We're a couple of 30 something gals looking for a fun evening out so any nice pub recs would also be good.

And it would appear that Japanese/sushi and Chinese are total write offs but does anyone have a best of the worst kind of thing? My gf comes from Vancouver, Canada so sometimes so we get a little homesick sometimes.

Thanks in advance!
