Oxford is an amazing place, with a beautiful collection of independent businesses and communities. It has a great hospitality scene, that is growing with more passionate and exciting sites – which is great to be a part of and help evolve.

Arbequina is one of my favourite places to have a relaxed meal with friends and guarantees an amazing taste experience. The atmosphere is really welcoming and I always leave looking forward to when I can return!

I love Arbequina! It’s a buzzy neighbourhood restaurant, perfect for catching up with friends over some great food and awesome wine. As a veggie, I feel well catered for with amazing plates such as aubergine, whipped feta, molasses and pomegranate, and courgette, spring onions, romesco and smoked almonds. Yum!

Arbequina – simply perfect tapas, lovely interiors, always welcoming & a real treat after a days work. They do amazing things with aubergines, the tortilla is the best we’ve ever had, & the desserts are fantastic , especially the Santiago tart is a must.

One of my favourite places to eat in Oxford is Arbequina – the food is STUNNING and the sultry vibe works perfectly from day to night. So many dishes you don’t want to miss, but the specials are always worth trying too.
