I love Raouls. I really do. The cocktail menu (which has shrunk and been updated of late) is interesting and varied, and whatever drink you choose will be delicious. Sadly, patience is required. On my most recent visit - admittedly a Saturday night, but a not particularly busy one - it took 20 minutes to get a drink. 20 minutes.... More

Came here as part of a hen do for a private cocktail making class. The two cocktail makers behind the bar were excellent and very well informed on the extensive cocktail menu and how to make them. Loved the classic margaretta but enjoyed the white chocolate martini with grated chocolate on top - delicious

We visited this great little bar on a recommendation from a friend (we're from London). A perfect find - fantastic cocktails, very reasonably priced (many about £7 each), small but very atmospheric. The cocktail menu was so extensive it was difficult to choose, and the bar tender was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Will definitely be back the next time... More

Raoul's is one of the best bars I have been to for cocktails, the bartenders are more than happy to tailor drinks to suit your taste and provide great entertainment when making the drinks. All the alcohol behind the bar is great quality and the menu is extremely varied. The bar itself has a great interior and plenty of seating.... More

My friend and I live in Oxford and went to Raoul's for an early evening chat and drinkies. I make cocktails at home so am fussy. The cocktails here are absolutely delicious: precise, fresh with a great mix of classics and novelties. The staff are courtly and friendly. At around £7 it's fair value and, early weekday evening at least,... More

Absolutely amazing, we learnt so much and met the absolute best bar tender who taught us all we now know about cocktail making. Antaris was brilliant at teaching and our knowledge of cocktails has expanded exponentially. Would definitely come again!!

Cocktails here are amazing, delicious and served with pizzazz. The staff are always friendly and it's a VERY popular bar. Be prepared to wait, especially at peak times, and come early if you want a table. We tend to go earlyish (6/7) on weekdays or Fridays and sometimes the staff are even able to give table service. My favourite watering... More

I reserved a seating area several weeks in advance for a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. I also rang that day to confirm. The staff responded "it is probably still reserved" so I asked them to make sure and they said yes. Arriving at 8:30, the time the area was reserved, we found other people sitting there, with no...

Hi Georgia We were sad to hear about your experience. We would like to know whether you let the any staff members behind the bar know that you had reserved an area? Quite often, when we are busy, other guests will sit down in reserved areas when there is no where else to sit, even taking time to remove reservation... More
