Pocket Number 4: St. Giles Cafe, St. Giles’, Oxford

Pockets of Oxford 002The cafe in St. Giles easily identified by an iconic outside table is called the St. Giles Cafe. The cafe harks back to the 1930s. Although it emphasizes breakfasts, it also serves dinner from Thursday to Sunday. Feeling hungry, I had supper there and especially cherished my pan fried fillet of skate that arrived on a Pockets of Oxford St Giles cushion of risotto shot through with crunchy samphire. Once seated, I noted that I could have brought along my own wine.

Dennis had advised that the waitress there was always nice and the waitress I met could not have been nicer. Amanda supplied the montage with a food for thought poster that provides customers a cloud shaped thought space in which to scribble their musings. She further supplied a packet of St. Giles Cafe’s unique tea blend and I was given a Pockets of Oxford St Giles2teapot of the tea to sample.

Amanda then sent me to see one of the  costumed character guides who give tours at Oxford Castle Unlocked at Oxford Castle. Amanda previously worked as the marketing manager for Oxford Castle Unlocked and recommended the tour guides as being very informed about the history of Oxford.   Pocket Number 5: Isaac Darkin at Oxford Castle >>
