Malmaison Brasserie in Oxford ��� once people were plotting to get out. Now they���re paying to get in. Set in a one-time prison where bad guys were detained at Her Maj���s pleasure, Malmaison Brasserie (part of the supersexy, supercool Malmaison hotel group) is now dedicated to your pleasure instead. The Brasserie has its own unique atmosphere that���s a bit gothic and funky, very much stylish and modern. The menu boasts simple favourites prepared with consummate skill, like signature dishes.
