Restaurant 1649 with its oak beams and Inglenook Fireplace offers a distinctive contemporary menu in a relaxed atmosphere. A lighter menu is available in the lounge bar, by the log burning stove in the winter or on the terrace on a warm summers day.
This sumptuous restaurant is a treat for all the senses. Oak beams and a large inglenook fireplace create the perfect mood, while our distinctive contemporary menu will leave you satisfied. 1649 was refurbished in 2014 and once again retained its AA rosette in recognition of excellent food and service.
The kitchen brigade led by Head Chef Marc Ward, has just been awarded 2 AA rosettes in recognition of its excellent food and service. In fact, many of our guests ask for a pot of homemade jam, marmalade or chutney to take home!
Due to the efforts of a committed and experienced team, we are delighted to have maintained our Platinum Award for 'Eat Well in Cherwell' operated by Cherwell District Council along with a maximum 5 stars 'Excellent' in the national 'Scores on the Doors' scheme for our food hygiene.
