A selection of Home Comforts - bangers and mash, fish and chips – are designed for easy eating yet there are also more elaborate dishes like Seared peppered tuna with salsa rosso or Roasted lamb cutlets with minted pesto vegetables. Small plates - such as cured ham with grissini and olives – allow for casual snacking while sandwiches and salads enable one-course, easy and casual dining.



All-day opening is designed to facilitate easy access and reinforces a core ethos behind The Living Room; you, the customer, is the one empowered to make decisions and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to do that, enjoy it and be comfortable.

Cherwell Boathouse Restaurant
You've planned an afternoon punting a la Sebastian Flyte - you've got the boater, the stripy blazer, the wind-up gramophone and the obligatory teddy bear, but whoops, forgotten the picnic. Instead of eating sweaty sandwiches, plan your punting excursion round eating at Cherwell Boathouse. Owned and run by the same family for the past 30 years, Cherwell Boathouse, as its name suggests is right on the banks of the Isis (Oxford speak for the Thames) in a truly scenic spot. The restaurant is small and intimate with a beautiful terrace but not twee. The atmosphere is buzzy and lively and there is a huge range of age groups. However, if you are truly set on a picnic, the restaurant will organise a hamper for a minimum of 15 people if you pre-order. What's cooking: Fish Terrine with a light crab mayo; fragrant Thai broth, crispy sea bream with courgette and carrot tagliatelle on a bed of noodles with a tomato and caper jus; baked breast of mallard with a cranberry compote; white chocolate and ginger torte; chocolate layered crepe cake.

The Feathers Hotel
The Feathers Hotel has long been one of the places to go for a romantic weekend and those lucky enough to live nearby go there to celebrate special events. The building, which was originally four townhouses is very picturesque and has recently been completely refurbished inside. Expect to be greeted by the resident parrot who presides over the reception area. Lunchtimes are smart but casual, and in the summer there is room for around 3 diners outside as well as in the restaurant. Dinner tends to be more formal, with black tie the norm. A very extensive wine list is coupled with excellent modern European cuisine. This is very much an 'occasion' restaurant and well worth travelling some distance to visit. However, if you really want to do justice to the food, drink and general ambience, book yourself in for an overnight stay and walk off all those calories in next door Blenheim Palace grounds the next day. What's cooking? Roast Hand Dived Scallops, set on a puree of haricot blanc, grilled chorizo sausage, cauliflower beignets and fresh parmesan; Hot carmelised foie gras, green split peas, smoked Italian bacon, salsify Madeira sauce and white truffle oil; risotto of royal Dourade seasoned with fresh crab meat, morels, pak choi, rosemary and aubergines; Pave of Halibut sauteed in olive oil with spinach, fresh asparagus,pesto and classic nicoise garnish, creamed rice pudding with poached figs, praline, bitter chocolate sorbet and sesame seed tuile; iced cherry parfait dried applies and pistachio tuile with a puree of griottines and vanilla sauce.

The Living Room - Oxford
Part of a redevelopment of the castle, the Oxford branch of this respected chain stands in the shadow of an ancient prison. But you won’t give that a second thought once inside the airy, sophisticated bar designed with loads of polished dark wood, plants lining the walls, low-hanging lamps, curvaceous chocolate-brown leather seating. And a white baby grand piano played most evenings by talented local musicians. The service and food are consistently good. A diverse menu travels from Britain through Europe to Asia and back to Blighty again in the shape of the Home Comforts section listing all-time classics such as fish and chips, and steak and ale pie. Splendid. Great place for leisurely New York-style brunches on a Sunday.

The Oxford Retreat
The Oxford Retreat is as cosy and sophisticated as it sounds. Much of the building’s original character remains in the painted wooden space; cocktail bar one side, atmospheric open kitchen and restaurant the other. The best of the seasonal, well-priced Modern European menu is generally the rustic dishes like home-marinated rack of ribs slowly cooked until tender served on top of old-fashioned homemade chips; chunky fish pie; bangers and bubble and squeak. Desserts, risottos, pasta and vegetarian dishes are written up on a specials board. Very friendly staff.
