Do you take reservations?
We take reservations for dinner, lunch and brunch in the ground floor dining room as well as our back patio and Terrace during summer. We do not take reservations in the bar, up in the snug, or on the front patios.
Do you have gift certificates?
Yes, in any denomination. Email us at [email protected]
What about large parties?
The Oxley can seat complete tables of 6 or less on a walk-in basis. Larger parties should contact us by phone or email. We do not take reservations on the front patios but do have options for party reservations on The Terrace. For sporting events and group bookings please contact [email protected].
Is there access for wheelchairs?
Unfortunately not inside, but there is room for wheelchairs on the front patio. There is no access to our washrooms as the washrooms are located upstairs and downstairs. There is one small step at the entrance to the front patio.
What kind of food does the Oxley serve?
We encourage the use of easily sourced and traditional ingredients, as well as some economical cuts of meat, to create a range of affordable and tasty British dishes. This is the perfect dining place for anyone seeking relaxed and comforting cooking at its best. The robust menu has a distinctly British theme.
What time do you serve brunch, lunch and dinner, and how many days a week?
We are open for lunch from Monday to Friday from 11:30am – 3pm.
Our Dinner & Snacks menu starts at 3pm each day, running until 10pm Sunday & Monday, 11pm Tuesday & Wednesday, and until 12am Thursday – Saturday.
Brunch is served each weekend from 10am to 3pm.

When is the patio available?
The Terrace will open from the May Long Weekend to Thanksgiving. Dates are subject to change pending weather conditions. Available seven days a week for both lunch and dinner events, bookings are made on a first come, first-serve basis, based upon availability.

There is no charge to use the Terrace, provided the minimum food and beverage expenditure is met. If the minimum spend is not reached, a room rental charge will be applied for the balance.
