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.

Fancied a fry up - as I had been here as a semi-regular before (some years ago) thought would pop in for something to eat. No one on the counter (all out the back cooking) ok they were busy. Young lad popped out, saw me,...no greeting, no acknowledgement, no attempt to ask what I wanted, just walked straight back into the kitchen like I wasn't there. I had already been stood there for some minutes and after that had happened, turned on my heel and went elsewhere. Having said that, I could also see through the serving hatch sorry looking sausages plated up which out me off even further. Not sure what has happened to this place or if under new ownership but won't be returningMore

£10 for the breakfast with potatoes! White bread, which is like cardboard. Tea poor quality and orange juice is concentrate.Not like it used to be under previous owners. Cheaper and better breakfasts available elsewhere! Will mot be re-visiting.

4 of us this morning (Sunday) we all met for breakfast and wow the breakfast was phenomenal. The customer service was very welcoming and homely and first class. The food was great tasting and the quantity and quality were faultless with every ingredient cooked to...perfection. The surrounding’s were great and very clean and tidy and I would highly recommend those wanting a hearty breakfast to pay a visit as the menu is so vast with so much choice.More

After being advised to have breakfast here by local friends, we weren't disappointed. The welcome was friendly and nothing was too much trouble (even with the demands of our 10 month old baby). The food is great both in quality and portion size and is...great value for money. Don't miss this place for a great brekkie.More

I found this little cafe very nice it is in a random place as there are no shops near it and houses either side of it. However despite where it is it is a very cafe. I had a lunch of a Tuna melt, chips...and drink. It came to £7 and I was expecting a small sandwich. Boy was I wrong a whole baguette filled with Tuna and Proper Cheddar Cheese. What I lied was the small handful of salad on the side so you could put it in the sandwich if wanted. It was lovely and for that price totally worth another trip.More

Have visited The Oxford several times and it delivered each time. The decor is exactly as you would expect as is the counter ordering and best of all so are the prices. Definitely worth a visit if in need of a big breakfast when in...Leamington. One change... replace the individual sachets of sauce on each table with better tasting and less wasteful bottles.More

Called here for breakfast with a mate whilst In Leamington today (Saturday) to look at a job, We both had The Oxford breakfast, It was ok but for what you got for the money (quite pricey) we were not Impressed and the bacon tasted strange...(was dry and tough) and all day we both said It was all we could taste and were convinced It was not too fresh & more than likely cooked the previous day and warmed up !! We used to be regulars here but will not be returning !! Nice waitress thoughMore

OXFORD MEGA £8.45 value for money and content. Fills a huge void until dinner time. Friendly staff. Clean environment. Highly recommended. Has a courtyard for summer alfresco dining and dog friendly and child friendly. Great little place. No pretence. Comfortably down to earth.
