The Old Parsonage Hotel

The 17th century wisteria-clad Parsonage is located in Oxford’s historic city centre, just a short stroll away from the Ashmolean Museum and the iconic colleges of the University. The hotel offers the charm of a country house with the amenities of a luxury hotel. The Parsonage Grill is located within the Hotel.

A refurbishment in early 2014 saw the addition of five bedrooms and a specially curated first floor library with terrace. Bedrooms and suites, 35 in all, are individually designed by Sally Conran with marble bathrooms.

The Restaurant, Bar & Pike Room, retain their intimate, bohemian, clubby atmosphere, serving British classic dishes with a light, modern touch. The restaurant & terrace are open all day, enjoy the famous afternoon teas in the company of Oxford’s academic & literary luminaries.

The Parsonage represents many things; an open fire, a famously warm welcome, the cosy all enveloping atmosphere with its unparalleled collection of portraits, sinking into velvet cushions, the best afternoon tea and seasonal autumnal dishes on the menu.

In addition to established favourites; cheese soufflé, seared scallops with artichoke puree, their trademark crab salad and rabbit, bacon and tarragon pie, Allan McLaughlin, Head of the Grill kitchen, has come up with some delicious, interesting autumn dishes which will naturally include wonderful game. You must try the partridge and bramley risotto, salad of sliced raw cepes with berkswell, venison carpaccio and pheasant breast schnitzel with hen’s egg and anchovy butter.
