Description: The Oxford Hotel is an iconic Adelaide pub/hotel that stands proudly on the corner of Tynte and O'Connell Street in the cosmopolitan North Adelaide, currently experiencing a revival. Close to the city and the newly completed football park - it's fast becoming a favourite hot spot. The Oxford Hotel has a relaxed and eclectic feel, surrounded with stunning mural art, combined with excellent presentation and consistency of food. The menu has great contemporised pub classics as well as gourmet specials and lighter options. With one of the best function rooms Adelaide has to offer, incuding with it's own private bar, pool table and balcony, it'svery popular with all types of parties. The Oxford Hotel can cater for any occasion - the perfect venue for product launches, engagements, 21st birthday parties, corporate events and any other special occasion that seeks a little class and uniqueness without breaking the budget. See our website for our fabulous testimonials! The restaurant menu also proudly includes excellent Vegetarian and Vegan options and our hard working and freindly chefs are more than happy to adjust a dish for dietary requirements where possible. There's the special 30% off lunch menu from Mon-Fri, and absolutely fabulous brunch from 10am-3pm on weekends! The dining room is open 7 days a week 12-3pm and 6-9pm, with selected share and cheese platters available all day on weekends (especially Sundays with Live Music). We've had travellers come from far and wide and they make a point of coming back again and again. We look forward to serving you!

“Slightly better than usual Pub food”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

There are lots of pubs in North Adelaide, all serving counter lunches of variable quality. Oxford hotel is no exception except it also serves some Asian meals over and above the steaks and Fish and chips. Given it is a pub it can be a bit crowded during lunch time. Prices are not too bad.

Pretty much only been twice for the burgers. Nice burgers and comfortable atmosphere. They could play NRL games, but I guess SA is AFL territory.

Terribly disappointed with the food, lousy serves, overpriced and they used old potatoes for their chips.....they were brown! An old haunt revisited and regretted very sad!

“The Oxford Hotel -”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

I visited The Oxford Hotel this past week for dinner. Four of us ordered quite different quisine. This hotel was a high quality eating destination some years ago and I perhaps paid a little more for much better. Having said that, the food was presented reasonably well and was of reasonably high quality and the prices I believe may have been a little high for what was presented. It really is average, average, average - service, food and price. Now, this is not to say that I won't go back. I will. I was just a little miffed that if I pay a little more than the average I would expect a little more than average especially from a once great hotel noted for its social and gastronomical prowess in the past.
