|The Oxford - Restaurant Bar & Brasserie located in a Historic Places Trust listed building in the heart of Timaru, inspires the brand, décor and grace of this restaurant and venue of simple class, uncomplicated elegance and pure enjoyment.
Experienced restaurateurs Michael and Clarissa Doran welcome you to The Oxford "The atmosphere is one that hums, it's warm yet confident and that is what we are all about."
With three main restaurant areas, there’s a place for everyone:
- The Bar - where you can have a glass of excellent wine or a craft beer on tap.
- The Brasserie - a place where you're still part of the buzz, and
- The Dining Room - for those who want to focus on their company and the food.
Its all about keeping it simple. We don’t want to mess too much with the quality ingredients we have sourced, so why should we? We have set up a bistro style menu with a European influence. Rustic bold flavours that marry perfectly. It’s the kind of food that makes you want to wipe the plate with a chunk of crusty bread to savour every drop. A wide range of craft beers and wines to match each dish and your preferred taste.
Check out current food and beverage menus As we change our menu regularly, it is subject to change without notice.
