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.

I have been to the Ashmoleon on several occasions and consistatly enjoyed my experience. On this occasion I found the staff friendly and attentive howeverthe food was very very average and the prices exorbitant. The cheese platter was terrible plain with a few squares of cheese and a bunch of grapes. The steak and chips was on par with a local pub meal and the salad I had was plain and tasteless. I wouldn't return to the ashmoleon to dine again.

Disappointed with my visit. The restaurant settings and food (if it was served warm) were nice, but staff and management seemed out of their depth (not) doing their job. They really need to sort this out. I'd never eat there again!

Very unusual setting, with great views over Oxford, so long as it's warm enough to sit out. Pity the hours of opening are not longer and that it's not open every night. Food very decent and service excellent.
