I visited the Oxford for brunch about 2 years ago and have raved about it every since. Unfortunately I just had not had the time to make it back until recently. I was so excited to go, but left somewhat disappointed. While the service was great and the food was good...it was not as AMAZING as I had remembered. I'm not sure what may have caused the change, but maybe I'll try lunch there next and see if it is any better??

Imagine Arriving at a restaurant and being seated immediately and then being ignored. Imagine a server finally coming to deliver water, and ignoring any other request. All because when you sat down you asked for a moment before ordering a drink. Now imagine watching the other servers all handling one table at a time, and ignoring others as they moved around. I chose the Oxford because it sounded like a nice place for a date. It wasn't and I wouldn't ever be back. The food was horrible and they ran out of the only fish item which is what I had ordered to begin with. Imagine what my review would have been if I had not waited a week to write it.

We had an enjoyable dinner with an attentive waiter. I had written in my notes that we had to eat quickly to get to the Christmas Carol play in time and every effort was made to have us out in plenty of time. We even got a 10% discount off of our tickect. Will go again, though this was not our first visit here.

I booked the Oxford same day and ended up having six additional guests (16 total) and they were very accomidating. The apetizers were the highlight of the meal and the warm pamento cheese starter was great!

Service was exemplary and the menu was fun and had something for everyone.

The British food was not authentic as our two party members from the UK pointed out, but was still good.

Can't wait to try them for lunch.

We've eaten here several times before attending NC Symphony concerts. It is a convenient walking distance to the concert hall. We've always gone early, and there has never been a problem getting a table. That likely changes later in the evening. The vibe is warm and friendly, the wait staff are attentive to time, and the food is good English Pub food. I've had the shepherd's pie twice, and it really hits the spot, particularly on a chilly night. The cost is very reasonable: two dinners, two desserts, two glasses of wine and tip all for under $70.00. There are several booths, which provide privacy for 4-6 people. There are also several TVs, thereby providing a sports bar option. Each time we've been there have been tables set up for larger parties (e.g. 15-20).

We felt there was a very limited menu. What we ate was very good but not what we were looking for.

if a person can find anywhere to park (due to raleigh's incessant blocking of streets to accomodate high polluting food trucks) this venue will reward your taste buds
