+1 for the Chophouse. They do serve on chopping boards though.

Hop Inn for good, and often great, beer plus the best pizzas in town.

Been there, wasn't impressed. In fact, my meal was pretty bad.

I had a similar experience there.
Possibly one of the only times I have ever left a meal because I disliked it, rather than being too full.

Its possible it was an off day because loads of people rave about it but i had a rack of ribs that had been slow cooked for so long even the bones turned to mush. Literally every mouthful had bits of soft bone in it

You may or may not have noticed, but the Hop is moving into The Pig, the old porn shop is being taken on by some Brizzle mob.

There's a thai restaurant on Wood Street, which is fucking superb. Also, I know you said Curry is out, but The Mela got a new owner some time back and some of the food served there is without question some of the best food I've eaten anywhere.

It's not your normal curry either; there's some really top drawer stuff and loads of great fish curries. We took my old man there for his 70th and we let them choose for us. Took a while, but it was incredible.

Canít recommend smile thai on eastcott hill highly enough. Itís tiny, so not one for refined dining if thatís what youíre after. The Jungle curry is great but makes the morning after on the loo a bit spicy.

I read that as "Can I recommend a small Thai on Eastcott Hill..."  Cheesy

Royal Oak, Old Town is good & the place to be seen (never thought I'd say that!).

Yak, the Himalayan Restaurant in Devizes Road if you like you curry dry.

Greek Olive Faringdon Road.

Chop House if you like to know the name of the animal you're eating

The Core for daytime vegan / veggie / flexitarian types.

The Crossing in town has good eateries for lunchtimes if you are OK with sharing your eating experience with the yoof.

Please let us know where you end up, and how it was.

Happy Birthday btw

Yes we stayed there about 6 months ago, the food is good but its pretty standard Chef & Brewer menu, a little step up from Beefeater quality.
