From Our Editors

The chefs at Ashmolean Dining Room craft European cuisine with flashes of British and Welsh inspiration for their diverse menu. Locally-sourced ingredients form the basis of the dishes, which can be tucked into amidst an elegant, glass-fronted interior or on the roof terrace. Based on the top floor of the Ashmolean Museum, the eatery gives panoramic views of the spires of Oxford University, providing a suitably antiquarian backdrop for the restaurant’s quaint afternoon tea served daily from 3pm. Led by Cardiff-born Head Chef Alun Roberts, the kitchen serves lunch seven days a week, and dinner Friday and Saturday evenings until 10pm. Meals can be paired with a glass or bottle of wine chosen from a wide-ranging menu, with German riesling sitting alongside chianti and rioja in the selection.

Limited menu, but food is very good. Dining al fresco on a nice summer evening is lovely.

Lovely setting. Although the food and service is inconsistent. You need to be "lucky" to have a good meal.

On a warm day you can enjoy relaxing in a deckchair on the rooftop lawn

Nice surroundings and helpful staff. Small portions so you need to buy extra potatoes etc. A bit expensive for what you get but a nice treat.

Overpriced. It was appetising, but small portions. Waiter would not bring bread with starter; that was 'extra'. Main course did not come with potatoes-an 'extra' £4 for polenta fries. To top it all, they added a tip of 10% Never again-not a patch on the Guggenheim restaurant in Bilbao

Wonderful venue! Superb, friendly staff! Well-chosen, fairly-priced wine list! Well prepared but quite simple food! Must book lunch. Read all the small print on the vouchers (for limited evenings only)

The food itself was lovely but the service was very slow and confused. Also considering the general surroundings the toilets were not very clean.
