My husband and I go to The One regularly as we love it so much. We called on on Saturday on our way back from the cinema, and had the most amazing fish and chips. The fish was cod cooked in beer batter, crispy and delicious as were the chips, served with tartar sauce, peas and salad. This is what... More

I popped in here for dinner during a business trip to Oxford. Took a while to get a food menu, and the choice was quite extensive, I ate the ribs. They came quite quickly, and tasted fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. Also, the tables in the pub part are massive. It is a good job it wasn't too... More

We had 2 excellent in-house and one carryout meals here. Service was a little slow but attentive and the place was very busy. Food freshly made with excellent ingredients, and imaginative.

I've visited The One on three occasions now and you cannot go wrong with the prices they charge. I wouldn't come here for a 'special occasion' but if there are a few of you and you want a quick service and average but tasty food then this place is perfect. The cocktails are interesting with faces drawn on the fruit!... More

We are as a family of 6 and they easily had enough variety in the menu to please us all. The food was fine and well presented with plenty of spiralizing to cheer it up! The service was really helpful especially with someone like me who needs to be told what to order. I would definitely recommend a visit

This place not a stones throw from the station serves great fusion food along with well kept real ale so if you only want a drink it has great seating indoors and a magic beer garden ( providing the english sun is shining). The staff were very helpful as one of our party was nut intolerant, we as always did... More

We chose The One as we went for lunch with parents and knew that there will be no parking problem. We chose the fixed lunch menu for 4 and it was all great. The stuff was very accommodating and were happy to replace a spicy dish for another one and were very friendly. when our dessert arrived we were all... More
