My boyfriend and I made a detour to Oxford and spent a lovely afternoon walking around the university town. And after doing a quick search of best tea houses in the UK and learning about The Rose we decided to visit the tea house. The afternoon...
40 High St, Oxford OX1 4AP, UK
I absolutely had to eat here. I discovered its existence long before we sojourned in England and told my husband that I absolutely had to eat here! After all, it's the longest established coffeehouse in Europe! And I'm American. Makes sense,...

The Missing Bean's coffee is just a perfect afternoon companion. It was around 17'C in Oxford today, and I ordered the one and only Ice Coffee. I thought it's gonna be another boring iced coffee but theirs taste very delicious. They have a very...
Broad St, Oxford OX1 3BG, UK
Despite the reminder, it's difficult to suppress your ooohhhs and ahhhs as you enter the courtyard of this 13th century masterpiece and birthplace of academia. If you can, sign up for the extended tour which will get you inside the library where...

There's no better spot to tuck in after a day of shopping or sight-seeing than the Turf Tavern. Legendary as a watering hole for academics and British detective show actors alike, this place promises great beer and people-watching. Grab a beer at...

67 Cranham St, Oxford OX2 6DE, UK
Even the name is brilliant – a tongue in cheek nod to the Grande Dame of the Oxford University Press just round the corner and a whisper that it's a bit rough round the edges. After all, this is Jericho, one of the most interesting and eclectic...
Market St, Oxford OX1 3DZ, UK
It’s easy to take the familiar for granted, and the Covered Market is no exception. For over 200 years, it’s been the beating heart of the city, bustling with traders, tourists and locals alike. But controversially, its very existence is...
5-6 Little Clarendon St, Oxford OX1 2HP, UK
Regarded as an institution, this cocktail bar attracts a young and gregarious crowd. Some of the best cocktails in Oxford are made by the skilled mixologists, who work hard for their money as the generous happy hour, from 5-9pm Sunday - Thursday,...
12 St Giles', Oxford OX1 3JS, UK
It’s difficult to choose just one pub in Oxford, but the Lamb & Flag is rather special - it’s owned by one of Oxford’s richest colleges, St John’s, and even has its own graduate scholarship funded by the profits. Never has consuming a pint of beer...

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...

You can tell a good restaurant by just walking past. Fortunately, the large windows let you see just how popular this place is. Family run since 1988, claiming to be one of the first Lebanese restaurants outside of London, it's now part of the...
