If you fancy something different give it a go, recommend the Beef Wellington. Whitstable has its fair share of poncy places but Oxford is simple well cooked food.

The Oxford is a privately owned intimate restaurant offering Modern British food in a relaxed environment. We have rapidly built a reputation for quality and service and pride ourselves on using the best produce that Kent has to offer, from well-respected local farms and fishmongers. The Oxford is open Wednesday to Sunday offering flavoursome and mouth-watering lunch and evening menus, and a traditional roast on Sunday lunchtimes. The Oxford has a license for alcohol and we stock a selection of quality wines, spirits, bottled beers, ales and lagers. For those who like to dine al fresco we have a wonderful courtyard garden, which can seat a further 30 people. Serving a homely twist on modern British Cuisine, Clare Brown's delicious menu has already secured a regular customer base and the seasonal menu changes regularly.
