Back in December, Mum and I took a day trip to Oxford with Minnie (that's my dog, incase you weren't sure!). We explored the shops, visited all the sights, walked for miles and snapped away on every street (Ok, so that was just me). Having a dog with us can sometimes be tricky as not everywhere is dog friendly - even if she is the most well behaved pooch you'll ever come across - so it was my job to find somewhere for lunch that would accommodate my little furry four-legged friend.
Wildly photogenic and slightly off the beaten track in Oxford, you'll find Gee's, a restaurant and bar serving up seasonal dishes inspired by the Med. Set within the most beautiful glasshouse conservatory, Gee's is a little slice of interior heaven that will have you falling in love at first sight. Oh, and they accept dogs. Hurrah!
We arrived early - partly down to being ravenous and partly down to us wanting the rest of the day freed up to go exploring - and settled in before the place slowly started to fill up. We munched on Gee's more than delicious fresh bread whilst we perused the menu, both choosing from the Express Lunch Menu (2 courses for £13.50). Mum, the pappardelle with portobello mushrooms and tarragon, and I, the chicken on a bed of stupendously tasty carrots and lentils. Both finishing with the Christmas Pudding ice cream. Bliss!
Satisfyingly stuffed, we headed back out ready to tackle the Natural History Museum. Not before paying a visit next door to the flower shop and wanting to take home every wreath in sight!
If you have any other dog friendly suggestions (in Oxford or any part of the country!) I'm always willing to hear them. But for now, Gee's will do just nicely. With pooch... or not, I highly recommend a visit!
