The quality of food at Alpha Bar is phenomenal. For the price, you've got to pinch yourself to believe it. Best lunch spot in Oxford, hands down. Service is also great - a friendly team working with passion.

In my top 5 places to grab food in oxford, very reasonably priced and friendly staff. All take away food though, wish they had a bigger place with seating.

This salad stall offers large portions for around 5 pounds. The pesto dressing is super yummy! On a sunny day you can easily find a spot to eat outdoors.

Really good decently sized portion for a quick lunch. I paid £5 for the daily special, which includes one side and one topping.

Alpha Bar is great for a quick lunch to go on a sunny day - there’s a wide variety of salad options and the portions are decent sized given it’s £4.50 for a small salad. Would recommend.
