Went with colleagues after work. Nice little booth for the five of us which gives a slightly private feel. The ambience was good and Two of us had the burger deal, which was very good. I would definitely go again.

We often eat breakfast at Joe's but as it was Bank Holiday Friday we decided to have lunch. I had the ribs which came with fries and coleslaw. The ribs were huge but so tender and succulent with a fabulous BBQ sauce, they just melted in the mouth. My wife had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and it was excellent.... More

Me and my wife made this our final stop before leaving Oxford and I am so glad the people at our hotel were too rude to serve us breakfast! Ended up here as it was a short walk from the hotel and the breakfast was perfect. The atmosphere and decor mirror the food, everything just feels very well thought out.... More

Great place to go for a relaxing drink/meal. Cocktails are great. Staff really good and attentive but not over the top. Sausage night great value!

Visited this restaurant with friends who are regulars, however with the exception of the company we were in the food and service did not live up to expectation. I started with garlic prawns in chilli, I expected something like prawns pil-pil these were small and tasteless and the chilli oil they were in was flavorless. Next was the house burger... More

Sorry to hear that - as you can see from the previous and following reviews, this would definitely rank as "out of character" for us - we're known for friendly and prompt service. We find a quick word to the serving staff re any food issues usually gets a replacement dish fairly quickly or a refund, and at least gives... More

In need of some comfort and charm, we came upon Joe's for the first time on 30 March 2017. The weather was warm and sunny. The welcome at Joe's was equally warm. The waiting team were all so friendly and competent. We had a fantastic and delicious chowder soup which was sufficient as a main course, just as the waitress... More

I have been here numerous times. I LOVED the mini Rubens sandwich they did as a special and the cocktails are pretty tasty. We now avoid the kids menu and share a main between 2 kids, everyone ends up stuffed and very contented. Coffee is also very good.

Came here for Sunday breakfast. Good variety, good service. Nice place to sit and relax and chat with friends. It is a nice location because you can go and browse the Sunday market. We'd come back. It was full, but there seemed to be a good turn over of tables so we did not wait.
