Goodbye Oxford....hello Brussels!

I've really enjoyed writing this blog, and there are quite a few restaurants that I was still hoping to review (apologies to the Magdalen Arms, MVH, Oxfork and more...), but I've now moved away from Oxford. This blog will remain, and I hope people will find it useful, but for the foreseeable future there won't be any new posts.

Moving countries has not, however, dampened my appetite for restaurant blogging. So I would like to invite you to take a look at my new site, the imaginatively-named In Brussels, Will Eat

See you there!

Vanbrugh House Hotel, St Michael's Street

The Vanbrugh House Hotel has been a fixture in St Michael's Street for a while now, but the only time I'd previously been in, a couple of years ago, was to point to the reception staff it might be better if they stopped calling their restaurant a 'brassiere' (sic) on the sign outside. Not the kind of thing I do normally, but it had been annoying me for months. I think the rather uninterested response (though they did say it was about to be changed) was one reason why I didn't proceed to try the restaurant, but as I continued to walk past I decided that two courses for £9.95/three for £12.95 sounded like a good deal, and at least there was no underwear involved.
