The Nosebag restaurant Oxford review
Surprisingly, I have never been to the Nosebag restaurant in Oxford. Located up a flight of stairs on Saint Michael’s Street, this restaurant has an incredibly homely feel with wood furnishing, quaint décor and carafes on each table. The environment is welcoming and relaxed – it has even been around since the 1970s.
With a ton of seating inside, it is perfect for groups and a fab stop for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as offering cakes and alcoholic drinks. The Nosebag restaurant offers a limited but varied main menu which also caters for vegetarians and vegans.
You order at the till, choosing your dish and salad or sides as you wait for your plate to be made up. If the item needs a little preparation, you pay and leave and sit with a number. I personally really like paying beforehand as it makes the dining process that little bit swifter.
So, what did I think of the Nosebag restaurant Oxford?
For my first visit, I devoured a homemade vegetarian quiche with two side salads. The salad bar selection at the The Nosebag is quite simply amazing, with a creative mix of fresh, delicious and vibrant side dishes. I have to be honest, I would come in for salad alone.
The following week, I savoured a jacket potato with cheese and beans – I am a giant child you see. My boyfriend had the burgundy lamb with seasonal vegetables and thought it superb.
Both occasions, these simple and wholesome dishes were great and the fresh salad bar really is such a fabulous addition to the restaurant.
I will be returning to this charming little eatery again. I think I may have just found my new favourite place for lunch within Oxford.
