We are frequent visitors to Timaru from Europe, this was our first visit to the Oxford where we dined with six friends. This is probably the most stylish restaurant in South Canterbury with an
excellent bar and an almost seperate uniquely furnished dining area with a strong Oxford/English theme. The service all evening was professional and very pleasant; the food was of the highest quality in all three courses and, despite the generous portions, most of us had three courses; the drinks menu wines, beers etc was well selected and offered adequate choice. The food, service and atmosphere made for a great evening and the most memorable meal of our holiday. The bill at the end of it all was surprisingly modest considering the quality.

A lot of locals rave about The Oxford but I canlt say I feel the same.Very expensive and food nothing special in my opinion.Wouldnlt go back.Maybe ok for a couple but not a family meal.Seems to be doing well though.
