Acanthus is the perfect blend of city centre bistro, combined with unique character and, of course, outstanding British cuisine, and retains many of the features that made it part of Oxford's illustrious history. Diners can enjoy a mouthwatering seasonal menu and above all, a place to relax and enjoy company with friends and family, making it a popular choice with both visitors and locals. Acclaimed chefs prepare the finest dishes and serve only the finest Scottish beef and the best British lamb and pork, with all ingredients prepared daily.
