Dirty Bones in Westgate Oxford

Dirty Bones has four restaurants, three in London (Carnaby, Shoreditch, Soho) and one in Oxford’s Westgate Mall. In all these London locations, the American cocktail bar and restaurant have seen a lot of success. It is our hope that the Oxford branch will be just as successful too.

In Oxford, Dirty Bones is located on the roof terrace where most restaurants are located. The restaurant is perched in a nice corner next to Pho and The Alchemist. What we love about the restaurant is their sections for those out for nibbles and those after a full meal. Either side is nicely decorated, the decor gives off a rustic yet cool vibe and is very relaxing.

Dirty Bones Holiday Menu

The whole purpose of our visit was to attend the holiday menu tasting that was hosted by the restaurant. We were able to sample the starters, mains and dessert plus cocktails too. The holiday menu offers two types of courses; 3 courses + sides £32pp and 2 courses + sides £26pp.

As we had 3-course taster menu, we have some recommendations plus we know the establishment. To start we had the Pork Belly Lettuce Cups, the pork was so tender and the flavours just melt together nicely. Then we tried the lobster mac & cheese, crispy fried chicken both of which were divine. To finish, we had smashed mince pie, deconstructed with white chocolate gelato and coconut dustings.

The Dirty Bones Cocktails

The night was made even more amazing by the two cocktails we had a chance to try, fizz was on offer too. The first cocktail was Vixen, a classic cosmopolitan served with straight up Ketel one oranje, cinnamon, lime and cranberry jelly.

Cocktail #2 was the fig poppa which is a figgy pudding inspired served on the rocks Bulleit bourbon, PX sherry, fig, lime and plum bitters. Both cocktails are priced at £8 which is reasonable and they are both really yummy.

I am really glad to have gone back and seen some of the changes in the Oxford branch. We enjoyed ourselves, the atmosphere was buzzing and the drinks were flowing, always a good sign. Definitely make a trip down to Oxford for this tasty holiday menu.
