Hearty and Healthy
This is a place that makes you feel good. It’s not just a restaurant. It’s a ‘social enterprise.’ All proceeds go to The Hub (housed in the same building) which supports and encourages student engagement with social and environmental issues. When it first opened, back in 2011, you could get a plate of hearty lamb stew for about a fiver. Prices have inevitably gone up but their values, and quality of food, has remained constant. They source locally, serving fresh, healthy and seasonal food. It’s the most down-to-earth restaurant in town, and hence very popular. Firmly engaged in the community, both town and gown, they regularly showcase artists and photographers from Oxford. Their ethos couldn’t be further from the building’s previous owners who operated a private member’s club. And if you like a bit of intrigue with your dessert, it’s rumoured that the basement is frequented by the ghost of Archbishop Cranmer, who was burnt at the stake here in 1556.
