We took advantage of a set meal offer. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. It was a bit noisy early on with after work drinkers in the bar, but levels settled down later on

The food was nice but service was really lacking. The staff was struggling with English, the food was served to wrong people, the bread rolls were warmed up from previous day. I was disappointed- I used to visit many years ago when I worked in the area and it was a proper 5 star food & service back then. Now it feels like a service you’d receive in a local pub, food is still nice but the overall experience is simply not worth the money anymore unfortunately.

Busy, really quite noisy in a lively way. Excellent menu and wine list. I’ve eaten here several times and the experience has been consistently good. I recommend the beef cheeks: incredibly tender and succulent.

Overall, good food and very good service. Would come again. Only disappointing thing was that even though the bread was warm, it was rather solid.

We ordered brunch and both decided on the eggs benedict. Unfortunately the portions are very small, although this is reflected in the price, the poached eggs were overcooked and there was very little hollandaise sauce. Overall it was very disappointing and I would have expected better from this restaurant, especially being based in the Charlotte Street Hotel.

Special occasion and definitely came up to expectation. First time friend has been and apart from charging for vegetables as an extra, we were happy. Missed the fact that it was a birthday celebration, but staff ensured we felt special. Turkey special was delightful.... yesthoroughly recommend.

A beautiful venue and charming service, supported by a varied menu. I went for the venison which was as much a feast for the eyes as for the palate, with great attention to detail in the flavour combinations and presentation. I'd say this is a great venue for a celebration meal.

It was a really lovely experience. Having been to the ham yard didn’t think anything could beat it but the staff here were amazing and very kind. The manager on (Saturday around 1) was a very thoughtful and attentive woman. All waiters did anything and everything to make us comfortable.

I booked a table for lunch for my partner's 40th birthday, the cocktails are to die for :) the food was fab and the service was exceptional! The lovely lady whom waited on us even took the time to ask why we were there, she came back with a birthday cake including a candle for my partner, he was over the moon! I would highly recommend Oscar's.

This was one of the best afternoon teas my daughter and I have ever had. First of all the front doors were opened for us by two gentleman in smart dress welcoming us in, then the front desk seemed really pleased we were having afternoon tea there, saying how lovely. We were seen to our seats quickly and and had the menu explained to us, The table looked beautiful especially the tea set. We are both vegetarians and were bought out an array of sandwiches and cakes of course, which were delicious including two each of what tasted like home made scones, with two different jams and clotted cream. The tea was very good and my daughter had coffee.The staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. We were given this treat as tokens to say thank you from my son and daughter in law for helping with their wedding and we can't thank them enough. Even down to other afternoon teas we have had with tokens, and having been charged admin/service charges of £9.00. Thank you for a memorable day.

Booked Oscar as I used to visit there inbetween meetings and its a good sociable lunch spot for meeting people in town. The prices have really inflated and £21 for a chicken caesar salad is really over the top, it's also far noisier than before. Still, a nice spot, but not great for trying to hear someone or have an intimate lunch.

Terrible and discriminatory — we came for brunch and were greeted by a waiter who claimed that he had to take our card to start a tab — for a brunch meal?!!! He didn’t ask for the card from the neighboring table, so I have to imagine we didn’t look especially trustworthy to him. I have to wonder if it had to do with my husband’s ethnicity.

I asked for a brunch deal with a choice of Prosecco, at which point the waiter haughtily informed me they ‘only have Champagne.’ (The menu explicitly says Bloody Mary or Prosecco for the brunch deal)

The tea and drinks came full 15 minutes after the order, which seemed like needlessly long for a fairly empty restaurant. The food came much later still and my eggs were cold. It then took us around 5 minutes to try to get the waiter’s attention for the bill — my husband ended going inside since we failed.

Beautifully decorated and very comfortable restaurant. Unfortunately it was very empty tonight (Bank holiday Monday) but there was a guitarist playing which was lovely. Service was good and friendly. Food excellent and portions were a good size. A little bit pricey but finding that everywhere seems to be putting prices up. That said had a lovely meal and nice end to a great weekend
