The Bicycle Shed
Situated in the heart of Summertown, The Bicycle Shed is a popular destination with locals, students and visitors alike. It boasts a stylish and modern interior with subtle vintage touches. Its location just outside of Oxford allows visitors to this cosy eatery to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, while The Bicycle Shed’s decor and ambience exude a charm that’s reflective of its setting.
The dishes make the best use of high-quality local produce and a wide array of seasonal ingredients. If you’re stopping by for a drink, why not order some nibbles to accompany your cocktail or glass of wine? The sweetcorn croquettes with herb yoghurt are perfectly crispy, and the marinated olives are full of flavour. Those looking for something more filling will find it on the all-day menu: there’s a delicious vegan cauliflower steak, which is served with quinoa, confit cherry tomatoes, golden raisin purée and broad beans, as well as a mouth-watering pan-fried sea bass dish. The puddings are equally tempting and include bay leaf panna cotta with roasted pineapple and honeycomb, and pear and blackberry crumble.
On Sundays, guests can also peruse a special lunch menu. Select from a range of roasts accompanied by all the trimmings, and alternatives such as sea bass, sea trout and vegetarian roasted squash salad.
