“Great GF Sandwich!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We had a wonderful experience at JimBob's. The sandwiches were fresh and delicious and we had lots of choices of meats and spreads and vegetables. One of us eats gluten free, and JimBob's made us a great Gluten Free sandwich. We also had a lovely talk with one of the owners, Jim. Hope this new business thrives!

“Heaven Can Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Amazing taste and wonderful staff who just like to ask you how your day was and where are you from. I asked for an extra tomato in my sandwich and the lady started adding tomato and said " tell me when to stop ! "

I will definitely go there again before i leave oxford.

Now i know why my tomato stock was down. :) (Only joking!) We love to be able to make sandwiches just how people like and as every one is made fresh to order you can get exactly what you want. Thanks for your comments.

“The best place in Oxford!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

I just happened upon this place because it was near St. John's College. I was greeted by an extremely friendly staff, who maintained their friendliness and even recognized me on subsequent visits. The food is great and I learned a lot of new English foods! They also have free wifi (which is great when the YHA youth hostel charges for wifi). Good atmosphere. Can't say enough good things about this place.

“A real find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

I read about JimBobs on Tripadvisor the other day and went to see for myself. It is in a great location around the corner from The Randolph, across the street from the Ashmolean and in front of the bus stops on Magdalen street. JimBobs bakes their baguettes in front of you and easily accommodated my wish for a well-baked one. Jim himself made me a delicious hummus, red pepper, avocado and salad baguette and happily chatted. With the sandwich meal deal, I had a piece of fruit and hot drink for only £1 more. Unlike most sandwich bars, JimBobs has some comfortable seating, at no extra cost. A delightful experience.
