“The Nosebag is stuffed with well cooked home cooked food in a fabulous old building. Choose from a wide range of health food, top it off with a hot chocolate, coffee, or hot ribena, and marvellous cakes. It is priced fairly and you can be assured of good quality food at all times. Be warned - if you go there once, you’ll go back again and again! :)”


“This is a lovely little place that serves huge portions of very tasty and wholesome food. I love the pate, the quiche and the huge selection of salads that they do in here. You can also get a lot of delicious hot food - chille con carne, beef in beer and a lovely range of soups have been some of my favourite specials.

You have to try the cakes too - there's a huge range and I've never been disappointed in any of them. I love the chocolate fridge cake, the cheese scones and the cheesecakes.

Good value and very friendly service, an excellent place to nip in for a quick meal for great value. Many different drinks available too, top up on your vitamins with the jucies while you fill up with goodness! ’’


“If you are entertaining a visitor to Oxford I would take them to this cafe to experience the olde worlde atmosphere. It is a great place to dine on fresh (if slightly pricey) food, or just sit and chat over a hot beverage. Definitely one of the city centre's gems.”


“This place has been around for a long, long time and is well known among Oxford people, fo having a great range of healthy foods, including hot food and salads. One of my favorites (because its low cost too), is the 3 or 5 salad plate. As the name suggests you can choose 3 or 5 salads for a deal price. Theres an excellent choice of very tasty and very healthy salads. Water's free. The portions are big. Oxford students get a discount and the staff are friendly too and its a pretty good location to just hang out with friends for a cup of tea or bowl of soup.”


“The best food, the best prices, the best selection, and the best portion size in all of Oxford. The Nosebag is my absolute favorite restaurant here (and I am a very picky eater)! I unfortunately have to return to the States in two weeks time and I wish I could pack the Nosebag along with me. The salads are amazing, the spinach/mushroom lasagna scrumptious, and the pear crumble cake and the white chocolate strawberry cheesecake are to die for. All my friends love it as well.”


“I've only recently become a regular at the Nosebag, but it definitely has a certain charm. The efficient "self-service" reminds you a bit of a school canteen, but the cosy atmosphere and homely seating makes up for it. The portions are massive, you will definitely be full after a main course, though the large selection of cakes look pretty good. You feel pretty 'healthy' eating the food as it's got a certain homemade fresh feel to it. And pricing is reasonable too. Perfect when you want to grab a quick bite to eat, or a lovely place to meet with friends too.”
