Historically rich Oxford is a big player on the UK restaurant scene. The best restaurants in Oxford lie around the garden-filled city centre, where mega-bistros and Italian bar-brasseries line the streets. Dining in Oxford is extremely diverse, so take a break from British history and journey to Gloucester Green where the best Chinese restaurants in Oxford lie. If you’re craving luxury, head east of the city to Great Milton, where you’ll find sophisticated French dining in manor-house surroundings. For restaurants with outside seating in Oxford, Park Town offers dining in a working boathouse, with views of the river and a former Wine List of the Year winner. The best Oxford restaurants with views are in the city centre, where cocktail bars and European eateries offer sights of Oxford University and Christ Church Cathedral.
