Weekly Home Favourite: Magdalen Road

If you are staying in one of our Oxford short let apartments or holiday rentals one of our favourite things to do is to spend the day in East Oxford. The area where Iffley Road meets Magdalen Road is a very vibrant neighbourhood that has lovely little shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs. We recommend the following places:

  • For shopping, Comma. Comma is a lovely independent shop that sells cards, homewares, gifts, artwork, books, and a selection of vintage clothes. You will definately pick up some wonderful gifts in here.

  • For a great cup of coffee go to the Oxfork café. Oxfork describes itself as a "lovely Oxford Cafe" and that is exactly what it is. It sells a great selection of locally produced food and drink. If you want a snack, try a piece of their delicious homemade cake.

  • For fine dining, the Magdalen Arms. The Guardian newspaper described the Magdalen Arms as one of the "finest gastropubs in the country."

  • For culture, The Pegasus Theatre. The Pegasus offers a great selection of theatre, dance, comedy and music. Check out what's on whilst you are in Oxford.

  • For beer and a board game, The Rusty Bicycle. The Rusty Bicycle has a great atmosphere and feels like you are sitting in a nice living room rather than a pub. They pride themselves on their selection of local ales, so if this is your first time in the UK you won't want to miss out.
