Very enjoyable evening with excellent service and tasty food. As it was a relatively quiet Tuesday evening, missed out a bit on atmosphere which I am sure would be buzzing on say a Friday night.

Lovely place. Need a better selection on non alcoholic drinks. Plus quite pricey overall.

Had an early dinner. Food was fantastic as always, staff attentive and polite. Only down side was two other guests constantly on the phone marching around, but not the restaurants fault, clearly. Highly recommended for an intimate dinner.

it was our first time visiting you and to be honest i am gutted i haven’t been sooner. food was incredible and a lot of vegan options which is a bonus for me! all food tasted fresh and each tapas dish was more than enough. your staff members were very helpful and friendly, we felt very welcomed! the drink selection is great as well and we will both be returning soon!

We have been a few times now. The food has been consistently good, with innovation - for example tapas with an Asian theme.

We enjoy a lovely dinner at Oxscale. A tasty selection of tapas from the special mid week menu-all exceedingly tasty especially the steak tacos. We started with gorgeous French Martini cocktails- definitely recommend. The staff was attentive and ensured a smooth enjoyable meal. Will be back.

Always a warm reception at Oxscale. Great food with varied menu and specials that frequently change. The chicken wings, gambas and steaks are exceptional. We are never disappointed with the selection of tapas, from vegetarian, fish through to meats. Highly recommend to all.

The service is very attentive and the food outstanding. The battered cod (tapas menu) was incredible as were the sardines. Along with everything else we ate.

Roast was fresh and genuinely tasted beautiful. Gravy - Yorkshire’s - delicious. Have been for tapas previously and again great beers, gins and ambience.
