Being on foot for part of the tour allows you to not only go into pedestrian areas such as the Christ Church meadows but also to go inside the colleges. The tour will visit some of Oxford’s oldest colleges detailing their development throughout history as well as the fun and curious aspects of this route.The tour will additionally enter the Bodleian Library.

Oxford Bike Tour Including Full-Day Bike Hire
"Why do so many people use bikes in Oxford? This is because they know it is the best way to travel around Oxford. Oxford University has 38 colleges spread all over the town and getting to see some of the best parts is too much even for your experienced gu that you simply couldn't on foot. Plus it’s a lot of fun. You also get to use the bike for the whole day! If you decide to take the afternoon tour your bike will be arranged for you to collect in the morning. Oxford is a small pedestrianised city. So travelling around it on a bus which physically can’t get into the central parts doesn’t make much sense. On this tour you will visit and hear about sights & figures such as Magdalen College (Oscar Wilde) Port Meadow (for the definitive guide to Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland)
From GBP25.00

Fishers Tips (3)

Fisher's Restaurant: Two course lunch for a fiver!

This eye-catching restaurant has always caught my eye from the decks of the Oxford Tube (bus route from London). It was only recently that I, or rather my girlfriend, had the initiative to get off and sample something from the menu.

Fisher's Restaurant are offering a 'two course light lunch' for five GBP. This is an opportunity to taste good and fresh food and receive real value for money. Comparable alternatives for this price are realistically nearby mini marts, fast food outlets such as McDonalds or Subway or a bus ride to your mother and father's house in the Cotswolds so why not take this opportunity to dine in a restaurant setting.

The decor has a strong nautical theme and is well synthesised into the surroundings. A good traditional Oxford front room dining space amdst bow windows and a constantly revolving front door. A window seat and some good company will make for a nice hour or more spent people watching Oxford's tourists and it's regulars. Above all the food has a local feel and flavour to it and is a good insight into a modern British cuisine. Service was good. Although a bit slow when it was time to pay up and get back out onto the street.

Fruit juices from £1.50 / Alcohol from £2.50
A set course lunch menu also available at £8.50 and other more pricey but delicious looking mains.

Favorite Dish Starter:- Anchovy salad
OR
Prawn cocktail

Main:- Tagliatelli & Salmon
OR
Garden pea and prawn rissotto

Fishers: Very disappointing

The surroundings were great ,but unfortunately the mussels were off. Having eaten mussels all over the world, it was more than obvious. The owner ate a mussel off my plate, suggested they were delicious and that we didn't know what mussels should be like. They did not deal well with our complaint. If you want excellent mussels in Oxford, try the Cafe Rouge, or for any excellent seafood, try Loch Fyne.

Favorite Dish Fish and chips were fine.

Fishers: Restaurant on the Starboard Bow!

Fisher's Restaurant has a revolving door, a pain for a wheelchair as they have to partially dismantle it to get me in or out! No chance of running off without paying the bill here!

The restaurant is a very floorboards affair, representing planking, the ceiling decorated with sails & storm lamps, and above Dado height we see an all around mural of the sea. Not the best mural, it resembles the North Atlantic on a grey day for colour. The restaurant is such less a pleasure cruise than a working trip for crew.

The food though, is something else. The menu changes daily & lists items that had me hard picked to choose. In the end I opted for the Cornish Flounder with potato cake & new potatoes & a bucket of bread & Butter on the side! Arrrr Shipmates! It was delicious! The buttery sauce helping the fish melt on my tongue! I chose a Fentiman's Ginger Beer to accompany (Fentimans is organically brewed), a strong ginger that grips the throat satisfyingly. I had eyed the fresh sardine starters beforehand, but as the decor did not resemble the coast of Portugal I declined! (Besides, there may have been no room for the flounder).

Much as I enjoyed the dish I eyed longingly the Bouillabaise, Crevettes, Sea Bass & Mussles that passed by in the hands of the waiters, wishing I had more stomaches!

A fine meal!

Wheelchair friendly - even with a revolving door!

Favorite Dish There are so many! sob!
