The Waterside Restaurant, Oxford

Delicious food prepared with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, served in our Oxford city-centre restaurant.

Support local hospitality and catering learners in our fantastic, student-run restaurant located at our city-centre campus, opposite the Westgate shopping centre.

Dine with us and enjoy delicious meals at great prices, as well as helping hospitality and catering students prepare for future employment by training in a commercial kitchen environment. The Waterside Restaurant is located at the City Centre Campus of City of Oxford College, next to the Westgate shopping centre.

From welcoming you and serving drinks, to preparing every course of your meal, our students provide a first-class service overseen by our own industry-experienced tutors. Our menus, featuring locally sourced produce wherever possible, are regularly updated with exciting new dishes from students and expert professional chefs.

A secret Oxford gem! The restaurant is run by students from the City of Oxford College, under the supervision of professionals: they prepare the food, dress the plates, lay the tables, etc. The food is of excellent quality and beautifully presented; staff are eager to please and friendly; and value for money is second to none.” – Waterside Restaurant customer review
