The Oxford - Permanently Closed

In many English towns and villages, the pub is central to the entire community. It’s where people gather to unwind, chat, and exchange ideas. At The Oxford, we want to be the gathering place for business lunches, after-work drinks, birthday dinners — or “just because.”
Located on Fayetteville Street, The Oxford offers the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere of a British pub in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. Dark wood accents, leather chairs and couches, and other special touches make guests feel like they’ve just stepped off the streets of London — and offer the perfect setting for live music, private dining, and more. In fact, late night on Fridays and Saturdays, The Oxford features great local live party bands on the main stage and packs out the bar with young professionals.

"I visited the Oxford for brunch about 2 years ago and have raved about it every since. Unfortunately I just had not had the time to make it back until recently. I was so excited to go, but left somewhat disappointed. While the service was great and the food was good...it was not as AMAZING as I had remembered. I'm not sure what may have caused the change, but maybe I'll try lunch there next and see if it is any better??"

"Imagine Arriving at a restaurant and being seated immediately and then being ignored. Imagine a server finally coming to deliver water, and ignoring any other request. All because when you sat down you asked for a moment before ordering a drink. Now imagine watching the other servers all handling one table at a time, and ignoring others as they moved around. I chose the Oxford because it sounded like a nice place for a date. It wasn't and I wouldn't ever be back. The food was horrible and they ran out of the only fish item which is what I had ordered to begin with. Imagine what my review would have been if I had not waited a week to write it."

"We had an enjoyable dinner with an attentive waiter. I had written in my notes that we had to eat quickly to get to the Christmas Carol play in time and every effort was made to have us out in plenty of time. We even got a 10% discount off of our tickect. Will go again, though this was not our first visit here."

"I booked the Oxford same day and ended up having six additional guests (16 total) and they were very accomidating. The apetizers were the highlight of the meal and the warm pamento cheese starter was great!
Service was exemplary and the menu was fun and had something for everyone.
The British food was not authentic as our two party members from the UK pointed out, but was still good.
Can't wait to try them for lunch.

"We've eaten here several times before attending NC Symphony concerts. It is a convenient walking distance to the concert hall. We've always gone early, and there has never been a problem getting a table. That likely changes later in the evening. The vibe is warm and friendly, the wait staff are attentive to time, and the food is good English Pub food. I've had the shepherd's pie twice, and it really hits the spot, particularly on a chilly night. The cost is very reasonable: two dinners, two desserts, two glasses of wine and tip all for under $70.00. There are several booths, which provide privacy for 4-6 people. There are also several TVs, thereby providing a sports bar option. Each time we've been there have been tables set up for larger parties (e.g. 15-20)."

"Having been there before -we ordered the best thing on the menu, and best red wine.
That made it a good meal for us. The service was interruptive, the decor, red and black AND more black was oppressive for a 7PM dinner. It must be fine for the under 30 late night crowd.

"We tried The Oxford for Restaurant Week and weren't disappointed! We enjoyed chatting with our server about food and wine. The menu was unusual and we didn't know what to choose, but the server was very helpful and we had a great time. We would go back again, and would recommend it to other people!"

"Generous servings. The chef was very accommodating to the people with various allergies in our group (celiac and mushrooms). Menu was labeled with Gluten Free and vegetarian options but the chef was able to modify something on the menu so it could be gluten free for us. Comfortable and spacious. Our waiter was wonderful...very attentive but not intrusive. The bar was on the noisy side....we were there with teenage kids....we were able to talk comfortably but there was a noisy background from the bar. Both teenagers said they wanted to return when they were drinking age to join that noisy (happy) bar scene!"

"I really enjoyed the food here and loved the atmosphere the food is very good, but it is not out of this world. I did enjoy the drink availability and the location to downtown. This place is definitely worth the stop."

"The restaurant was dark requiring a flashlight to read the menu. It was restaurant week so the prefix menu was ordered. It was a good menu. A rude server brought the 1st course appetizers and the 2nd course entrée all at once to our table. Our waitress told us they were serving this way during restaurant week.
It was a poor way to serve because the entrée was cold by the time we finished the appetizer. It seemed obvious they wanted to quickly turn over the tables.
It was hard to judge the entrée because it was cold and not enjoyable.
Good customer service seems to be lacking during restaurant week
