Oxford is an idyllic location for the elegant Ivy brasserie institution, with its stunning canals and historic buildings. The Ivy Oxford Brasserie is close to the city’s major landmarks, from the Ashmolean museum to the mesmerising botanical gardens, there’s plenty to do while you’re here. The quintessential student town, Oxford makes a pretty backdrop to the brasserie, which is nestled between the shops and galleries of the city.
Come along with friends or treat your family to a spectacular dining experience at the elegant Ivy, whether you’re in the mood for slinging back cocktails after work, or deserve to treat yourself to a hearty roast dinner, the Ivy awaits.
The menu at the Ivy will have your taste buds tingling, especially after a sunny day out punting on the River Cherwell. From starts of yellowfin tuna carpaccio and duck liver parfait to resplendent offerings of chicken Milanese and indulgent lobster linguine, made with vibrant red San Marzanino tomatoes. The steak selection is very good too, with sirloins, fillets, rib-eyes and more on offer, and the sauces are delicious too – think green peppercorn, truffled red wine jus, or wild mushroom. Punters can also indulge in the grilled fish of the day, which is freshly sourced every day. The selection of dishes at the Ivy is impressive, with punters frequently coming back to try more.
The Ivy’s Oxford branch is also beautifully designed inside, with vibrant interiors and sophisticated furnishings, the spaces are designed by top interior designers to create a buzzy, chic atmosphere – much to the delight of punters. The restaurant also features a delightful private dining room, aptly named the Botanical Room – the event space is decked out in plant-themed furnishings and décor. The room is vibrant and happy, and can seat up to 24 guests or 35 standing for a drinks reception.
