“ Address: 34 Oxford St / Harrogate / HG1 1PP / North Yorkshire / England „
The Oxford Street brasserie is situated in the centre of Harrogate on Oxford Street directly above jojo Maman Bebe. Given that it is on the first floor it is hard to spot and could explain why it's not getting the passing trade that it deserves.
Having dined there this weekend (our second visit to this establishment) I felt it very sorry for them as they have got everything right apart from the location and it's hurting them. I do not have any affiliation with people who work/own there, I'm simply a big fan of the place and think they deserve recognition.
It is a very modern décor and I love the fact that you can see through into the kitchen, it's very reassuring. It is quite expensive which does not explain why it's not pulling in business as the quality of the food easily justifies the price. After ordering you are presented with a free mugette (my made up word for small cup) of homemade wild mushroom soup which is delicious. I had a beetroot and goats cheese salad to start (£6) which was lovely and fresh and my partner had fois gras (£7) which she said was lovely. Mains were fantastic, I had slow cooked belly of pork (with crackling) an £13 and my partner had a rump steak (£14). The first time we dined there the chef popped through and asked us if we would like flakes of chilli on our noodle based dish, I loved that!
I have recommend this place to all my friends and sincerely hope that business picks up for them.
