For years Pierre Victoire has been Oxford's busiest and best-loved truly independent restaurant, and we have earned a reputation that we are proud of. It's nice to be recognised by organisations like Hardens, but more important to us is the opinion of our customers, who consistently make us No 1 on review sites like Trip Advisor, and voted us winner of the inaugural Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards, Public Vote. These accolades are a tribute to our dedicated team, many of whom have been with us for years, and take a great pride in what they do, whether they are cooking the food, or serving it.

The Bear Inn has the proud distinction of being Oxford’s oldest surviving pub, whose history can be traced back as early as 1242. The site has undergone many name changes and physical reincarnations – the pub, as it currently stands, was rebuilt in the early 17th century as the residence of the coaching inn’s ostler. As well as being recognised for its impressive historical record, The Bear Inn is also known for its somewhat unexpected yet impressive collection of old ties, representing sports teams, colleges and university clubs, as well as the large number of global visitors who have dropped by, eager to contribute to the collection. The tie snippets are now framed and line the walls and ceilings, beneath which visitors can linger over a pint of real ale on tap or tuck into a delicious Sunday roast.

The Eagle and Child has deep roots in Oxford’s history. Fondly referred to by locals and students as The Bird and Baby, this rustic little pub dates back to the 17th century, when it was reportedly used as the lodgings for the Chancellor of the Exchequer during the English Civil War. The pub is arguably best known however, as the meeting place of the Inklings, a literary group including J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, who would regularly meet in the Rabbit Room at the back of the pub to discuss their own and other works of literature. Today, the pub retains the same cosy, quaint charm which attracted this group and is the perfect place to relax over a pint and burger while soaking in the local history.

Freud; Stunning, awe-inspiring, magnificent: these are only some of the words that come to mind when first confronted by Freud, one of Oxford’s most popular cocktail bars. The bar is housed inside the majestic St Paul’s Church in Jericho, an impressive building designed in 1836 by Henry Jones Underwood in the Greek Revival style, featuring a large portico and towering columns, between which are now nestled tables and chairs for outdoors dining and drinks. The interior is equally astonishing and retains the antique church aesthetic – seating is arranged in clusters beneath an extraordinarily high ceiling, with ambient lighting illuminating intricate stained glass windows and dramatic hanging banners. The drinks complement the beautiful setting, with a range of creative, quirky cocktails made with the freshest of ingredients.

Located in the old Frank Cooper jam and marmalade factory, a beautiful early 20th-century brick building purpose built for the company’s jam producing needs, The Jam Factory has since been converted into a contemporary restaurant, bar and art gallery. The venue is now dedicated to supporting artists and promoting the local cultural scene through exhibiting art works, running classes and workshops, and offering a free space for live acts to perform for an audience. The bar, meanwhile, offers an extensive drinks menu, from craft beers and real ales, to a varied wine selection to suit everybody’s tastes, making The Jam Factory an excellent spot to relax over a few drinks in an unusual yet beautiful setting.

Located in Oxford’s trendy Jericho area, The Old Bookbinders is an excellent example of the traditional Oxonion pub – cosy, quirky and welcoming. The atmosphere is eccentric and full of character, with an old toy train set suspended from the ceiling and the walls and ceiling covered with music posters and memorabilia. The pub continues this theme in its events, holding regular open mic nights for locals, students and visitors to come and perform. Although The Old Bookbinders eschews the term gastropub, preferring to keep its image and menu down-to-earth and simple, its French-influenced pub fare is undeniably delicious. Steaks, seafood and an outstanding variety of crêpes fill the menu, and can be accompanied by one of their many wines, an ale or a crisp cider.

One of Oxford’s newest additions to the pub scene, having only been established in 2009, The Rusty Bicycle has nevertheless established itself as a quirky neighbourhood staple and is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations in Oxford for a pint and a meal. The interior is intimate and cosy, with charming vintage posters and postcards of bicycles hung up on the walls and chalkboards with the day’s menu or amusing quotes fixed behind the bar. The pub fare, meanwhile, speaks for itself – juicy burgers, hand cut chips and sour dough pizzas abound and the pub offers midweek specials and deals on food.

The Trout Inn is a well-known and well-loved historic pub located in Oxford’s Port Meadow, a large area of common land filled with flora and wildlife just a few minutes walk from the centre of the city. The pub is nestled on the banks of the River Thames, which runs through the meadow and still retains many of its traditional features, including an original, listed wooden footbridge. Outside, tables and chairs in the garden area offer excellent views of the river, surrounding countryside and the pub’s beautiful stone building, while the interior boasts comfy sofas, roaring log fires and period features in a quaint dining room area.

Located down a narrow, winding alleyway, The Turf Tavern is initially tricky to find, but well worth the effort. The pub has a long list of famous patrons, from the fictional, such as Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse and Brideshead Revisited’s Charles Ryder, to the real, including Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Bill Clinton, all of whom have enjoyed the Tavern’s maze of interconnected rooms, wide range of guest ales and large, heated beer gardens. The pub has a year round, lively atmosphere, with locals, tourists and students alike crowding around tables to socialise and sample the traditional English pub fare. The Turf Tavern is also a popular post-exam celebration spot, so come June keep an eye out out for ecstatic students covered in confetti and cradling their first pint in weeks.

This is one of the best tours I've ever taken. Our guide was Tom. He was very impressive - highly informative, and at the same time extremely entertaining and passionate (he said he grew up in Oxford and went to college there). He spoke clearly and was accessible to visitors from different countries. The topics covered were really interesting, and gave a good perspective on the town and the university. Beyond the usual sites, there were interesting discussions on university life, funding, and contemporary debates. Highly recommended!

this place is lovely I always try and come here when I am in Oxford. This garden is better earlier in the Summer (June / July probably the peak) but the fruit and veg plots are interesting as is the 'dry' garden which is not watered nor fed and still grows so well. The Victorian glasshouses have a lot of interest too and the pond is beautiful. The river location is great and you can get here by walking through Christ Church Meadow which is a nice stroll. An hour here should suffice, more if you bring a picnic.

Plant Oxford is the birthplace and heart of MINI production. Manufactured to individual customer specifications, hundreds of MINIs leave the plant's assembly lines each day, off to meet new owners in 108 countries around the world. Three UK plants have had a part to play in MINI production - Plant Hams Hall makes engines, Plant Swindon produces body pressings and sub-assemblies for MINI, and all this comes together at Plant Oxford with body shell production, paint and final assembly. Since production of new MINI started in 2001, more than 2.4 million cars have been made at Plant Oxford. But the plant's heritage goes back much further than that - it is a site with 100 years of automotive manufacturing history, which has become a landmark in the "city of dreaming spires". And now Plant Oxford has hit another landmark having held the world premiere of the all new MINI hatchback on 18 November 2013. Total area: approx. 200 Acres (809,000 m2) Workforce: 4,000 Apprentices: approx. 95 per year Daily production: up to 900 vehicles Current products: MINI Hatch (3-door and 5-door), MINI Clubman, John Cooper Works
