Rating: Classic Oxford
My family first started going to the Robert Morris Inn in the late 1970s! Well, visually, it hasn’t changed much, probably really hasn’t since the 19th century (the building is mostly 18th century).
A classic building right by the Oxford ferry dock.
The tavern has both outside and inside seating. I wonder if they ate outside in the 18th century?
They certainly ate (and drank) in rooms like this!
Spring Garden pea and Mint Soup with crab. Crab makes everything better (except one’s uric acid level). The soup was nice and refreshing.
Crispy Wild Catfish sandwich with hot chili-cilantro mayonnaise and pickled spring vegetables on toasted baguette.
Panko-crusted fried Oysters with organic mixed greens and remoulade. Only the greens are vaguely healthy.
Crab cake sandwich. Because I haven’t had enough of these. Look at all that lump blue crab!
The food at the Robert Morris was very nicely updated. We had perfect weather outside and it was a lovely meal.
