Oxford only has 4-5 restaurants (we ate at 3 of them in our short visit) and Pope’s Tavern is almost certainly the best.
1997 Remoissenet Père et Fils Romanée St. Vivant. 87 points. While this was a properly mature wine with characteristic RSV terrior, our bottle was mildly corked. Not the undrinkable level of cork, but enough to be annoying.
Pope’s Tavern has a nice kitchen. It’s not the lightest fare, but it is darn tasty.
