Feast on our seasonal dishes and afternoon tea over the beautiful views from our Rooftop Restaurant or stop off for a freshly prepared meal in our café.
Look for the restaurant on the top floor of the Ashmolean Cafe. Reasonable. Good place to eat on a hot day -- out on the balcony. No view!

“If you take the time to look through the history books, you will find that The Grand Café as it is now, stands on the precise site that housed the very first Coffee House in England. According to a number of trustworthy sources, including Samuel Pepys, a Jewish entrepreneur named Jacob established the first English coffee house in 1650. A direct quote from ‘The Life and Times of Anthony Wood, Antiquary of Oxford 1632-1695″:- “This year  Jacob the Jew opened a coffey house at the Angel in the parish of S. Peter, in the East Oxon ; and there it was by some, who delighted in noveltie, drank. When he left Oxon, he sold it in Old Southampton buildings in Holborne neare London, and was living in 1671.” I’m sure that if Jacob returned today, he would be proud to see what has become of the place. From humble beginnings, The Grand Café is now regarded by many as a true Oxford institution and above all – a purveyor of a darn good cup of coffee.”

“The Eagle and Child, nicknamed The Bird and Baby, is a pub in St Giles' Street, Oxford, England, owned by St. John's College, Oxford and operated by Mitchells & Butlers as a Nicholson's pub. The pub had been part of an endowment belonging to University College since the 17th century. It has associations with the Inklings writers' group which included J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis. In 2005, 25 other pubs had the same name. The Eagle and Child from directly in front of the building, in St Giles Street. A small, narrow building, the pub reputedly served as the lodgings of the Chancellor of the Exchequer during the English Civil War (1642–49), when Oxford was the Royalist capital. The landmark served as a pay house for the Royalist army, and pony auctions were held in the rear courtyard. These claims are inconsistent with the earliest date usually given for construction of the pub, 1650, and the fact that the pub lies outside the city walls may also give some cause for doubt. The first record of the pub's name is from 1684, and is said to derive from the crest of the Earl of Derby. The image is said to refer to a story of a noble-born baby having been found in an eagle's nest. An alternative explanation for the name of the pub is from the star constellation 'Aquila and Antinous'. The constellation was named by the Roman emperor Hadrian after his boy lover Antinous drowned the Nile in 130. The constellation's first known depiction was in 1536 on a celestial globe by the German mathematician and cartographer Caspar Vopel (1511–61); it was shown again in 1551 on a globe by Gerardus Mercator. Tycho Brahe listed it as a separate constellation in his star catalogue of 1602 and it remained widely accepted into the 19th century, when it was eventually remerged with Aquila. The pub's long-standing nickname is the Bird and Baby, although other variants such as the "Fowl and Foetus" have been used. The pub had been part of an endowment belonging to University College since the 17th century. The college placed it on the market for £1.2 million in December 2003, saying that it needed to rebalance its property portfolio. It was bought by the nearby St John's College, which also owns the Lamb and Flag pub opposite.”

“The Lamb & Flag is a pub in St Giles' Street, Oxford, England. It is owned by St John's College, and profits fund DPhil student scholarships. The pub lies just north of the main entrance to St John's College, who manage it. The Lamb & Flag Passage runs through the south side of the building, connecting St Giles' with Museum Road, where there is an entrance to Keble College to the rear of the pub. The name of the pub comes from the symbol of Christ as the victorious Lamb of God (Agnus Dei) of the Book of Revelation, carrying a banner with a cross, and often gashed in the side. This is also a symbol of St John the Baptist, and so is emblematic of ownership by the College of St John the Baptist.”
