I was excited when my husband told me he’d found a pub that serves vegetarian and vegan food! As a veggie (my husband eats meat), I thought that a veggie friendly pub sounds like bliss! We walked from our hotel to the pub, which was located in a beautiful area – however, it’s about 20mins from the centre of Oxford.... More

This is popular place. Food is amazing for vegetarians who usually have only one choice on the menu. Great selection of beer. Only issue is that pub is small and pollard so often full.

I've been eating in this pub for years - it has the best veggie stuff in Oxford (to my knowledge), but I'm a meat eater so I guess it's harder for me to to comment. They have the best veggie burgers I've had in my life - seriously. I am also a big fan of their chili. I highly recommend... More

There are few pubs in the world where you can leave belongings behind, and ever expect to see them again. I left my hat in the Gardener's Arms (which sounds like the opening lyric to a blues ballad) one evening about three weeks ago. I never expected to see it again (likewise). Not only did the staff track me down,... More

I was there with my girlfriend and a couple of friends of ours. We totally fell in love with this beautiful pub, its food, drinks, and atmosphere. The interiors are looking clean and tidy, despite of the age of the building itself, and there's a very homely coziness. We had lunch and some drinks, and oh.my.god. Everthing was so tasty... More

Visiting Oxford for the weekend so used TripAdvisor to find somewhere to eat that serves vegan food. The reviews seemed ok so we thought we would give it a try. Like a number of people have already said the staff could do with some customer service training and the food was average! I did enjoy the mushroom pie but the... More

It's quite far out - about a 20-25 min walk from Christ Church, and quite expensive. The staff are friendly, but the inside of the pub not particularly inspiring. However, a meat-eater deemed the veggie burger the best veggie burger he had ever had, which probably makes the pub worth a visit.

I'll admit I was skeptical at first, but their veggie burger is truly amazing - you don't miss the meat at all. Try it with a pint of Orchard Pig cider.

Lovely, cosy, 'pub' feel, with friendly, helpful staff. I had a calzone with vegan mozzarella and chips, which was lovely! the online menu doesn't show their new addition of vegan cheese, and the new southern fried 'chicken' burger. this place is wonderful for veggies and vegans, but definitely won't disappoint meat-eaters either (with dishes like veggie chilli, curry and pie!)...

Quite shocked at our bill for 4 people. On average £10.00 each, so very overpriced, and uninspiring food. This place was not full on a Sat lunchtime, locals obviously avoid this place. Unfriendly owners, would steer clear, Shame as the actual Pub is in a nice area, Jericho. Shame this place is so disappointing!
