Conferences in Oxford: Eat

The dining options in Oxford make for a list too long to comfortably fit onto this page! We've selected just a few options for you to consider and highly recommend you look through our entire dining directory for a full list of options. Not every restaurant will offer catering services, but if you're breaking into groups and heading out onto the town it's good to know what local gems you can look forward to!

(We also recommend you look at our Outdoor Dining options in town.)

From Indian food to ice cream, pub grub to Italian, Oxford is a town that will make sure you don't go to bed hungry.

12 W. Park Place

Rent out some space at Left Field Tavern and enjoy a comfortable meal in this uptown favorite. Menu items include sliders, wings, steak, brisket, and burgers. If you want to catch a few sunrays while you dine, take a seat on the outdoor patio out back.

Left Field Tavern also offers catering, so you can have their delicious menu items delivered to your event space.

Gaslight Brewhouse

325 S. College Ave.

Gaslight Brewhouse not only has a large and diverse menu of food, they also have a gorgeous Lamplighter Room that can seat up to 50 people for your special, intimate occasion. Have them open up the large garage doors so that your space extends out onto the patio (complete with firepits).

Want your food delivered to a larger space? Gaslight Brewhouse also offers catering!

35 E. Church St.

Fresh deli sandwiches, hot lavosh (what you see there on the left), and smoothie bowls are just some of the menu items you can look forward to at Fridge & Pantry.

There's not enough seating inside to accommodate a large group, but that's okay because Fridge & Pantry offers catering and can bring the food to you!

15 E. High St.

Tucked away downstairs right off High Street is Steinkeller, an authentic German bier hall with tall glasses of beer, large plates of schnitzel, and truly decadent Beer Cheese sauce!

A fun little secret is that Steinkeller connects to Circle Bar, an unmarked bar that is well-known to residents but not so well-known to those just passing through.

104 W. High St.

Oxford's oldest Chinese food restaurant is Phan Shin and their menu truly has something for everyone, whether you're looking for traditional Chinese dishes or something familiar like General Tso's.

Take a seat at one of the booths or tables inside, or grab a table for two outside facing the busy High Street.


Chamber Voucher Program: Work with us to create a list of local restaurants that’ll honor a voucher your attendees turn in during lunch or dinner periods. Your attendees can find the right fit for them while enjoying a stroll through our picturesque Uptown district.
