Exclusive offers for Keble guests
Kick off your Keblestaycation with a meet up at The Plough at 38, a perfect central location. Book ahead and mention you’re staying at Keble and they’ll set aside an area for you where you can enjoy drinks, food, and views of historic Oxford (St Michael’s Tower) as you plan the next few days. With locally sourced beer and spirits and an extensive menu curated from local producers, you’ll find it hard to leave! And to top it off, mention Keblestaycation and you’ll receive 10% off the total bill.
If you’re ready for a sit-down midafternoon, head to the Covered Market and seek out the Market Cellar Door. Here, you’ll find an extensive collection of independent wines and beers and you won’t even need to choose between them. Keble guests can enjoy a flight of four beers, or four wines for just £6.50. And if you buy some food from one of the other Covered Market traders, you can even enjoy that too while enjoying your drinks.
From the Rooftop
Enjoy a 360 view across the rooftops in Oxford’s finest rooftop restaurant and bars.
Add a touch of class with lunch or afternoon tea at the Ashmolean Café from their rooftop restaurant and terrace.
The Varsity Club is also a top spot for cocktails, dining and drinking into the evening. With outdoor heaters, awnings and heated seats, you’ll want to stay all day!
From the Water
Alternatively, head to the Folly Bridge, spanning the River Isis, where you can enjoy a pub on many levels at The Head of the River. Perhaps The Folly Restaurant is more your vibe, for relaxed lunches or fine dining or even hire a punt or take a boat ride from Salters Steamers.
Cafes are a plenty in Oxford, and hidden around each corner will be an independent café serving up freshly cooked food and drink. Head to Jericho Coffee Traders Expresso Bar on the High Street or The Missing Bean, tucked away on Turl Street. Or if you’re after something different, why not try one of Oxfords artisan bakeries?
Fancy a drink?
Put aside an hour or two for The Oxford Artisan Distillery Tour, a must for a foodie short break. Well worth booking in advance to fit your own itinerary, you’ll see one of the most original still set ups producing an impressive portfolio of spirits from organic rye.
