Maxwell's Restaurant - Oxford

36-37 Queen Street, Oxford, OX1 1ER

Maxwell's at Oxford has been around for quite some time and its popularity is as great now as it was when it first opened, probably more so. Many of our political and celebrity figureheads of today cut their drinking teeth there, in company with a menu that hovers between straight American and a British twist. The decor speaks of wood and glass with space, there is a cutting edge cocktail bar and their pricing policies are equally keen and imaginative. Late night dancing and entertainment may attract those who want to throw off academic boredom, as well as a wider public; either way, the place is always buzzing. Amongst the starters look out for sharing plates of crispy baked hand scooped potato skins with smoked bacon, duck spring rolls with plum sauce, and smoked Buffalo chicken wings with a choice of mild or spicy sauce.

To leave this restaurant without having come to grips with one of their famous hamburgers is unthinkable. Said to be a sure cure for hangover or heartbreak, possibly both even, they come with French fries, a crisp mixed salad, choices of dressing, and the relish tray.

A full rack of tender baby back ribs St. Louis style is smothered in their tangy sweet barbecue sauce and served with French fries and coleslaw. To follow, think New York cheesecake or Maxwell's sundae, followed by copious quantities of coffee that tastes very positively of the bean.

Let's assume the day is still comparatively young and the cocktail bar beckons. Manned by eager, amusing and knowledgeable staff you can in the fullness of time, become more stoned than those dreaming spires outside, fuelled by such potent creations as the Mai-Tai, a blend of gold, white and dark rums mixed together with orange curacao, apricot brandy and pineapple juice. The sinner Clements is another classic drink with a kick - Beefeater gin, Absolut citron, orange extract and bitter lemon. Have a care; you'll be back next day for more hamburgers.

Watch out for a dress code that makes it clear not just everyone is admitted, enjoy the after midnight closing times and live music - this is Oxford with a difference. It is worth noting their daily happy hours between 17.30 and 19.30 and from 21.00 till close.

REVIEWS OF Maxwell's Restaurant - Oxford

Pablo (16 August 2010)

Maxwell's is the greatest pub/restaurant in Oxford! The people are fantastic and the music is amazing! I have enjoyed it a lot, and I'm sure I will come back.

Claire (14 April 2010)

I can honestly say that the peppered steak salad here is the best in the whole world! It was amazingly delicious and done just the way I asked for - which seems a rarity these days. It was so tasty I could have had two had I not got so full. If I lived in Oxford I would go there all the time, but quite frankly, I am more than willing to travel all the way there again just so I can visit Maxwell's Restaurant! The food, staff and service were all absolutely excellent!
