About The Living Room - Oxford

At The Living Room our focus remains on sourcing the best quality ingredients, preparing them simply and delivering bags of flavor and texture on the plate. This is good, honest, robust and stylish food with its origins firmly in the European tradition with international touches. There is nothing frilly or fancy. 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.

The Living Room, Oxford Castle, Oxford, OX1 1AY

The evening at the Living Room was enjoyable, but very noisy, even before the live band commenced. Unfortunately our waiter knocked a glass of red wine over onto the table which splashed all over my shirt andtrousers - a pure accident, which he apologised profusely for, which resulted inanother bottle being produced and instructions to send the dry cleaning bill to the restaurant.

The Living Room in Oxford was, above all, too noisy. There appeared to be a live band playing and it was difficult to hear both the waiting staff and my dining companions. Around 5 items on the menu were unavailable. The chicken skewers were tasty, as was the bruschetta and scallops. The fishcakes were overpowered with herbs. The main course salad seemed ungenerous, and the lasagne overcooked, however the chicken burger and seafood linguine met with approval. We won't be rushing back.

Dined in the Living Room last night. Not too happy that there was neither lamb nor T-bone pork. Ended up ordering fish n chip. A good restaurant but slightly over priced.

I took my boyfriend to The Living Room in Oxford for his birthday and although there was little atmosphere (as we went at lunch time on a friday before pay day!) the place was was very nice, the staff were helpfull and the food was average. I would go back, but probably only for drinks on a friday night for a lively atmosphere.

Visited there again yesterday. Food was okay but they served way too slowly. The fire alarm went on in the middle of my dinner. Anyways not my best dining experience.

an efficient and comfortable place to enjoy a quick lunch - so many appropriate choices - but I will come back for the soup - and work my way through the interesting assortment of sides and starters to complement

We visited the Living Room at Oxford on a damp wednesday evening, Dominic our waiter was charming and allowed us to take our seats earlier than we had booked. The food was good and the cocktails excellent. Overall a very pleasant way to spend a January evening

Quiet on a Tuesday night but got busier a bit later on (after 8.30). Living Room food was nice and waiters struck the right balance between good service and over doing it.

A group of four visited The Living Room at 1 Oxford Castle, Oxford, on the 3rd Nov 11. Our booking was at 1800 hrs. When we arrived there were a few customers at the bar area and only one other couple in the Restaurant, so it would be hard to comment on Service. They were how ever extremely attentive and friendly. When we explained we didn't have a long time due to a show that evening they said they would endeavour to make our meal as quickly as poss, which was to a very high standard.

Good pub food and friendly staff. Two of us had the club sandwich and ended up with very sore mouths because the toast was so scratchy. How do they do that?

The Living Room - Oxford. Smart spot away from the bustle and madness of tourist Oxford. In the Castle grounds (look for the County Hall to find it). Varied menu with good traditional and off-beat dishes. Bits of european, english and asian/fusion. My halumi salad was imaginative and tasty, though a little over-seaoned for me. Green Thai curry was fresh and tasty but a little thin. Good wine list with plenty of upper end wines by the glass - well worth a look.

We met up with family in Oxford and found The Living Room on top table. Great location 10 mins walk from the train station. The bar area was very pleasant with comfortable seating and the restaurant had a great ambience. The staff were very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed a starter platter to share, the mains were delicious. Would definitely go there again. Very darkened lighting downstairs to the toilets glad I hadn't had too much wine!

Had a lovely family lunch at The Living Room in Oxford. Food was excellent, as always. However, for each course we had to ask for cutlery as it was not on the table when the food arrived. Otherwise, a lovely afternoon.

Arranged our visit to The Living Room, Oxford at the last minute on a busy Saturday evening. Splendid location at Oxford Castle, good food and a lively atmosphere (with live music) made for a very pleasant evening. Service became a bit slow when the restaurant filled up at around 9pm.

We were delighted with the service, the wide choice of food avaiable, and what we ordered was as it said which in this day and age is not always the case. Would recommend it to anyone and will definately return for another meal

A good venue next to the castle and in the heart of Oxford. Service was attentive, food good. Not cheap.

The Living Room in Oxford has a good vibe with live music on a Friday night at the bar. The specials weren't great - overcooked tuna, but the standard menu was good.

I always enjoy the living room

A very pleasant experience as we have come to expect from this small chain of high quality mid priced restaurants. Being able to sit outside on the roof terrace made the lunch very enjoyable and the food was, as ever, good. Keeping the menu small and focussed really works in this context. The service was pleasant if, perhaps, a little over effusive at times. Overall. good.
