Go from day to night in Oxford

Visiting the dreaming city of spires with a loved one this summer? We’ve picked out some of the best things you can do when you stay at our boutique Oxford hotel, taking you from day to night! Read on to find out more…

Breakfast at Bill’s

We’ve partnered up with Bill’s restaurant, right next door to our hotel in Oxford, and for only £10.50pp you can enjoy a delicious breakfast! Perfect for setting you up for the day ahead.  We’d highly recommend the Buttermilk pancakes with bacon or Full English. Yummy!

Take photos at Radcliffe Square

After fueling up, you’ll be more than ready for the day ahead, so why not head out for a stroll around Radcliffe Square. It’s only a 5-minute walk from our hotel in Oxford and it’s simply stunning! All four corners of this square are filled with beautiful Oxford buildings, so it’s not hard to see why it’s always busy. It’s the perfect place to get some beautiful photos – perfect for uploading to Instagram (if that’s what you’re into!)

Lunch with Leon

No, we’re not asking you to go for lunch with a stranger! Instead, why not check out a healthy, natural, fast food restaurant, Leon!  Serving up a variety of food from wraps and burgers to salads and even healthy chicken nuggets, you’re sure to find something you love! Plus, why not treat yourself to something sweet – after all it is healthy!

Have a laugh at the Glee club

Once you’re relaxed, changed and ready for the night ahead, why not go to Oxford Glee Club? Tickets for shows are around £16.50pp and over the years it has hosted some now-famous faces including Jo Brand, Sara Millican, Jimmy Carr, Lee Evans and Michael McIntryre! It’s best to check what is on before booking your tickets as days and shows vary. One thing is certain though, you’ll come away feeling uplifted from laughing!

Head for a nightcap at Angels

Before heading back to our boutique hotel in Oxford, why not stop for a drink at Angel’s cocktail bar, only a short walk away! Their happy hour runs from 4:30pm – 9pm daily, but if you don’t make it in time for that, the prices are still very reasonable.  We highly recommend trying their ‘White Chocolate Martini’ for something a bit indulgent, or their ‘Ignorant’ pink gin infused cocktail for something a bit more fruity!
