Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Try the one to Wolvercote and you can return via River Thames. Several narrow boats enroute and cute cats too. Peaceful walk but watch the cyclists!

    The River Cherwell is a pretty river passing through the heart of Oxford.
    Nice for boating or simply walks to get away from the tourist crowds.

    Enjoyed the walk around the reservoirs on a good, level, surfaced track, as we've done many times before, but mean-spirited Thames Water, despite £2.2 BILLION annual revenues, have re-introduced parking charges here, presumably to reduce footfall and help kill off the cafe? Seriously, what costs do TW need to recoup from a few members of the public parking and walking? What else can they do to ensure a total lack of public-spiritedness and discourage local people from using their facility for healthy exercise. First 45 mins is free, but of course that isn't quite long enough to walk a full lap (wonder who worked that one out?!).

    Many other walks in the area, so no longer visiting and no longer using the cafe. Shame.
