DINNER DATE – Indies to get takeaway from this Valentines

 In Best Of, Inspiration

The month of Love is now here and whilst we’re up for sharing the indie love all year round (see our #LoveIndieOxford campaign!), there is one day this month that generally sets hearts aflutter.

In previous years, restaurants would be fully booked and wine would be flowing in bars up and down Oxfordshire. But as we know, that’s a far off memory at the moment! However, a number of Oxfordshire’s indies are determined that we won’t miss out and so we’ve rounded up the indies that are doing takeaway and sweet treats specifically for the 14th February from breakfast in bed bundles, at home movie nights to three course romantic dinners…

Pompette Oxford


As you’ve expect from this wonderful Summertown restaurant, they’ve put together a mouth-watering Valentines Day menu including antipasti to share, Hereford beef fillet, Chocolate & pistachio delice, rhubarb and custard macaroon – to name just a few!

£80 for two people. £110 with bottle of Champagne and Parmesan Crisps.



Tom and Phobe have created a Dinner Date night in a box for one or two! Super easy cooking (only the main courses) and they’ll guide you through every step of the way. Taking orders until the 9th Feb so be quick!

£60 for two people. Includes red rose, fresh chocolate coated strawberries, candle and homemade fudge.
