Welcome to the first monthly round up from us on what’s new in and around Oxford. This month there’s lots of new openings and re-openings as we head in to the festive season. So, grab your pumpkin spice latte, pull up your thermal socks and have a read of where to go and what to do in Oxford this October:
OLE + STEEN REOPENS
We couldn’t believe how much love there was on social media this week about Ole + Steen re-opening for the first time since 2020. We’ve sure been missing those heavenly Cinnamon Social Slices! Welcome back!
LAMB + FLAG REOPENING AT CHRISTMAS
Big news for Oxford! Historic pub Lamb & Flag, famed for being the local of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien, is set to reopen just in time for Christmas thanks to the Inkglings Group. Oxfordians had a collective sigh of relief at the news as the pub is such an important place both historically and for the community. We can’t wait to say cheers!
NEW DISCOVERY: ELECTRA COFFEE
Electra coffee is a buzzing new coffee place near Gloucester Green that is practical as well as selling delicious New Ground coffee that hits the spot. You can get your mid morning buzz whilst charging your phone in their super futuristic charging hub. Look out for 100+ other Electra charging spots around the city.
NEW OPENING: PLANTS + GRILLS
Vegetarian? Meat eater? Flexitarian? Then you’re gonna want to visit Plants & Grills at the Westgate Centre food court. Their aim is to show that you can have delicious, healthy meals that work with or without meat. We’re loving this sustainability and nutritional initiative.
OPENING THIS MONTH: JOE + THE JUICE
Copenhagen’s original Joe + The Juice will be opening their second UK store (the other being in London) at the Westgate Centre this month. It caters to everyone with their health focused mega menu of juices, smoothies, coffee and food. Check it out and find your new hang-spot.
