EAT HERE OR GRAB A PIZZA? Definitely eat in. The hotel’s restaurant, The Oxen Bar & Grill, has a fantastic seasonal British menu you can enjoy as you take in the surrounding modern art and sculptures.
There’s also an all-weather al-fresco dining terrace that will come in handy as the summer arrives. The breakfast was excellent, with plenty of the items cooked to order.
WHAT ELSE? The hotel has a well-equipped 24-hour fitness suite or you can burn some calories by going on a two-hour Oxford University & City Tour with Footprints Tours.
