Where to Eat and Drink Airplane Logo

What can we say? Oxfordshire is awash with some great pubs, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets – a veritable hub of gastronomic excellence. Just two miles away in the picturesque town of Woodstock is a good selection to choose from – at least eighteen different establishments. In Oxford city itself are some of the finest, busiest, oldest and most notorious pubs, bars and restaurants in England. From a £5 meal around the corner in Thrupp, to quite possibly one of the best Michelin-stared restaurants in the UK, Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons (voted the No.1 hotel for food in the UK – CN Traveller) or indeed the off-the-wall Crazy Bear at Stadhampton, the choice is excellent, and all within a stone’s throw of Oxford Airport. Oxford has routinely been nominated as one of the best cities in the UK in which to dine by the “Which? Good Food Guide”. With more than ten Oxford restaurants mentioned in the guide, Oxford ranks top in terms of city size, against London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds and Glasgow.

The airport of course has its own ‘Horizon’ restaurant if time doesn’t permit venturing off the airfield for an hour or more. This offers hot dishes every day (breakfast too) along with a selection of salads and sandwiches. The 51.50 ‘Costa Coffee’-franchised, licensed bar/café and retail shop opposite the new business aviation terminal is ideal for snacks and drinks through the day, seven days a week and even offers take-away pizzas. If time permits though, we strongly recommend venturing 15 minutes down the road into the city of Oxford where the choice of bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs is ever-expanding – well over 250+ at the last count! You’ll find up to date listings of those at Oxford City Life or In Oxford.

If any of our visitors, locals or residents have a recommendation to make for somewhere within no more than 10 miles (15 minutes) of the airport, then please let us know about it at info@londonoxfordairport.com.

Happy drinking!
