Just an excellent place to eat close to the centre of Oxford. Food great. Lovely boho atmosphere. Bike shop downstairs. Bikes and bike paraphernalia adorn restaurant. Service friendly and efficient. Even accepts a tastecard. Filled up quickly at lunch time. Highly recommend.

Thank Mike B

Quit place to have a good breakfast. There was a funny, unusual, hyperactive, French sounding waiter.
The furniture was peculiar..but the gear didn’t work very well ;)
Nice looking, large, yummy dishes, bacon especially !

Simply fantastic. The place is cosy and nicely decorated, staff is extremely friendly and the food is delicious, as well as the coffee. I tried a couple of vegan options: lemon drizzle cake (delicious) and coconut pancakes (super delicious).

Brillant and clever idea, bicycle themed venue with nice drinks and food. Perfect to just chill out or having a party. Definitely recommended if you happen to be in Oxford!
If you're a bike lover, you'll LOVE this place!

Popped in here for an early evening drink prior to supper in another restaurant but found we were taken in by the atmosphere and interesting menu. We started with a cocktail and then cancelled the other restaurant and stayed at The Handle Bar. The food was all freshly prepared and utterly delicious, from the roasted nuts nibbles to the smoked mackerel starter then Dorade fillet followed by rhubarb pannacotta and chocolate tart..... it was all excellent and very friendly chatty staff too. I would definitely recommend a visit and we will be back. Thank you.
