After an epic walk around Port Meadow, my OH & I were starving & Poppy needed to put her paws up for a bit. We decided to head for The Gardeners Arms in Jericho, Oxford. When we used to live in Jericho, we used ate at the Gardeners Arms a few times, mainly because they’re the only place in Oxford (that I know of) that only serves vegetarian food. Not only that, the food is simple & delicious.
I opted for the quarter pounder veggie burger with all the toppings and a burger relish. It was delicious! Just what a veggie burger should be – tasty, filling and perfect for a Saturday lunch. I love that you can get all the toppings without paying extra and the fries come with it. All for £8.50. Bargain. They also do a vegan option and have plenty of vegan alternatives on the menu. It’s nice going to a place where you can eat everything on the menu and that any carnivores in the party won’t feel cheated because there’s no meat to eat.
Not only that, but it’s a dog friendly pub. We asked if Poppy could come in with us and they were more than happy for her to be in the pub, though she chose this moment to go a little crazy so we chose to eat outside. Knowing there are dog friendly pubs in Oxford is always great as Poppy does not like being left in the car at all so leaving her there is never an option. The Gardeners Arms is a real hidden gem in Jericho, Oxford. Yes there are lots of fancy places to eat along Walton Street, but sometimes only a burger will do and for that there’s the Gardeners Arms!
