Oxford’s Indies taking part in #EatOutToHelpOut

 In Inspiration, News

The Eat Out to Help Out Scheme has gone down a storm for many people (both businesses and punters!) and it’s great that the Government is using some funding to go a little way to building back the hospitality industry.

We therefore bring you our list of Oxford’s indies that are taking part in the scheme. Will you or have you used it to be a bit adventurous and try something new? Or will you be using it to visit your favourite place even more regularly? We’d also love to know what you think of the scheme? Has it encouraged you go eat out more? Or made no difference to your indie eating habits?

See you at an indie restaurant or cafe soon!

City Centre

Quod Oxford


Treat yourself to a sophisticated dinner at Quod! This offer applies to all of their menus on these days, including their Set Lunch Menu which, during August, they’ve renamed the ‘Dishy Rishi Menu’!


The Espresso Bar on the High Street in Oxford is a great place to grab a coffee and a delicious cinnamon bun from East Oxford indie Silvie, or slice of cake from Barefoot in Jericho.

The Folly Restaurant Oxford


Dining in a truly unique location on the river in the heart of Oxford. The Folly strives to be a sustainable business and offer a constantly evolving seasonal menu to take advantage of the freshest local produce and to reduce ‘food miles’.

Colombia Coffee Roasters Oxford


Stop at their cafe in the Covered Market (closed Mondays), or pop along to their Summertown cafe to pick up some coffee and fresh fruit and veg at their pop up farmers shop.

The Jam Factory Oxford


Restaurant, bar and gallery, the Jam Factory has become a safe haven for the food lovers and art enthusiasts of Oxford. Located just a stone’s throw from Oxford train station, bus station, city centre shops.

The French word for tipsy — Pompette, a stylish charcuterie wine bar and restaurant in Summertown, Oxford. Not been before? Use #EatOutToHelpOut at the perfect excuse for date night!
