This splendid Victorian conservatory’s first century housed the flowers, fruit and vegetables of the Gee family, who were the leading nurserymen in the area. For the past 25 years it has been one of the city’s best and best-known restaurants, a North Oxford landmark still at the top of its culinary game. The location, with its tree-lined outside terrace for summer dining, is perfect.

Occupying the ground floor of a former bank, Quod quickly became Oxford’s most popular restaurant – not only for the student and young professional crowd that the contemporary styling suggests, but for dons and other venerable Oxford folk. The location is perfect, halfway along the High Street, among the colleges, and the food – pizzas, salads, fish and meat dishes and daily specials – are briskly served by young waiting staff.

Housed in the undercroft of the university church of St Mary’s, this is one of the most unusual café venues in Oxford.
