Where to have Christmas dinner in Oxford

For a plan freak like me, it’s never too early to start planning anything. Seeing that we are coming toward the end of October, it’s absolutely the right time to start planning for Christmas.

My friends and I now have a tradition – every year I throw a Xmas meal. For the first couple of years I would host it at home, but once it got too difficult to cook for 20+, we’ve opted out for a restaurant followed by the pub crawl (and Christmas Carol singing, obviously wearing Xmas jumpers!), so it’s time to look for an ideal place to go for a good and affordable Christmas dinner to suit everyone within your friendship group. So the question arises:

Plan for earlier evening – this way you’ll have more than enough time to go to the pub after – and no one can say that it’s getting late! 🙂

Make sure you enquire with the restaurant first – they get booked up very quickly.

Most will require deposit per person – collect it from your friends beforehand, otherwise you risk to be in your overdraft! 🙂


Feel free to add your suggestions in the comment, and I will add them on.
