Saturday Dinner provided a splendid end to our regular February stay at Underscar. A venison steak cooked to rare perfection. Michael, the chef, had this unmissable dish for us at the top of his range of excellent local dishes. As always the staff in Oxleys we're welcoming and attentive. We spotted a fox stealing the red squirrel's hazel-nuts from the... More

I called on Saturday to make a reservation for lunch the following day at 12.30 but was advised they could only do 12.25 - which wasn't a problem although I am still at a loss to understand why as when we arrived there was only 2 other tables occupied (and only one other couple arrived all the time we were...

We spent a week in nearby accommodation, and only tried Oxley's because heavy rain made a long drive (or walk!) unappealing. What a treat! Initially we were hesitant as the smell of chlorine from the spa was quite strong, but I'm really pleased we stayed for lunch. Delicious food, and attentive yet unobtrusive service - a wonderful combination. Highly recommended.

We visit our apartment at Underscar every year and always look forward to a meal at Oxleys. The service is friendly and efficient and the food delicious. This year we needed a quick meal as we were off to the cinema. This was accomplished even leaving us time for a dessert. Special mention must go to the gooseberry sorbet, really... More

This was our second visit. The first time it was lovely food but was a bit of a wait and excellent service. However, the 2nd time it took about 45 minutes to be served our food after ordering. The restaurant had a replacement chef ( usual one was on holiday) and they ran out of beef for the Sunday carvery... More

Visited Oxley bistro as part of a spa day deal. The missus used tesco vouchers to book this so almost feels like a free day out. Restaurant is lovely(so long as you can get over the fact half the people will be dressed in bath robes) we had a two course meal as part of the deal and added a... More

We visit the apartments at Underscar each year and are amazed why this restaurant isn’t packed every single evening. The Sunday roast, which we enjoyed on arrival, was served piping hot with fresh crisp vegetables whilst our grandchildren were offered either the children menu or a (not that much) smaller portion of the roast. Our second visit was an early... More

Had a lovely meal here on Saturday with family and friends whilst visiting our timeshare. Choice of food was excellent service attentive but not intrusive. Couldn't manage a desert as starter and mains ample and good choice of wines. We will return at least once before we leave. Keep up the excellent service.

Although we have eaten here numerous times (lunch and dinner) I usually hold back to make sure the standard is constant. We have not been disappointed. We then invited friends and after asked for their comments. They agreed with us and were impressed with the food the service and the cleanliness of the venue. This is slightly off the beaten...

We visit the bistro every time we visit our time share at Undescar which is attached to Oxleys bistro. It is very convenient for the apartments with a lovely choice of food and drink on the menu. The furnishings are very comfortable and staff helpful and attentive. A really enjoyable meal. The bistro is open Wednesday to Sunday to everyone... More
