The Chester

Pub Food in Cowley Road & Southeast Oxford

Is The Chester a pub or a restaurant? Clearly it’s both, with its busy beer garden, but the main reason visitors venture to this residential backstreet is because it serves Oxford’s definitive roast on Sundays – beef for £13, a whole chicken to share for £33 – and a legendary steak platter otherwise, costing from £32 for two diners.
