Bills was full so we thought we should try Nosebag having seen lots of positive reviews. The restaurant is on the 1st floor and there is a surprising amount of seating available. Relatively quiet on Saturday morning so seating wasn't a problem. As is customary...More

We've been here a few times now and have always left satisfied. It has a really relaxed feel to it and is quite cool on a hot day. The service is fine, staff are friendly and coffee and cake good. We've not eaten food here...More

More a cafe than a restaurant in appearance yet serving restaurant quality food at cafe prices. A good place for a filling meal with no frills. Good choice of freshly prepared meat and vegetarian dishes with a varied choice of salads.

As an ex chef I am always concerned when the kitchen is on view, and this kitchen does appear to be a kitchen that would hard to clean the surfaces daily. This is becuase the surfaces are rammed with jars/tins and other 'store items' -...More

Cute little place tucked away with simple, wholesome + fresh food. Portions are very generous & it's great value for money. Plenty of seating considering how small it looks when you first enter. Would definitely return.

The Nosebag is a hidden gem in a city filled with decent places to eat. The decor is basic and it feels a bit self service but the food is superb. Great choices for most diets so no-one feels left out. Good mix of cuisines...More

Cafes and restaurants come and go in Oxford, but the Nosebag is as much part of the city as the University itself. It's hardly changed since I was first taken there as a teenager - wooden tables, chunky crockery, substantial salads and quiches, tasty vegetarian...More

I've been here twice for breakfast this month, and both times it was very good, and easily one of the most reasonably priced in Oxford. It's £6.75 for the full English (which I heartily recommend), consisting of 6 items: bacon, sausage, mushrooms, fried potatoes, eggs...More

Can you book a table at this restaurant or is it just turn up and see if there is one free? Also are there plenty of options for gluten free ?

Hi! You can just turn up, it;s a first come first serve base. There are a few large tables of 6-8 people and if you're not shy from conversation with strangers you can also share a table with plenty of room for everyone as... More
