Hi all , (Sandy ) What is the feeling -meet at a pub (don't have to book ).Meet at a restaurant need to book or a Hall social place .
Picnic weather permitting .Town or countryside .
North Oxford - south /west /east or main town .
Sure that it would be easy to sort once decided . Veggie and or meat place . Special requirements .
Not trying to make it difficult but some guidance will help.
Other than that I will decided and then put up a selection and then vote on it .
Big thing is to be active as it will not happen unless we do.

I presume we're looking for places in the Oxford area rather than in the city?
Oxford is very nice but was always very difficult for parking (havent been there for long time) I did a google & found a couple of informl places nearby that may suit depending on the weather but I havent been there so cant recommend

This one is nearer Moreton-in-Marsh than Oxford but it sounds like a good place for meeting up http://cotswoldfoodstore.com/cafe/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Oooh morton in the marsh sounds like a very good idea! I like the look of the place you linked to Kitla

I suppose as we'll all be driving, there's not much point going to a pub

I think indoors as we can't guarantee the weather for a picnic, but we could sit outside if nice.

I'd be happy to go with Kitla's suggestion of the cotswold foodstore cafe, sounds like a nice big place )t'

Looks good to me Bob, and times are fine for me. )t' Just 1 booking for me, not sure hubby is up for hours worth of talking about chickens, he gets enough just with our little flock! :-D And no little feathery companions for me, I couldn't trust any of them to behave. Nugget, Rems or Tiggly would've been fine but this little crew aren't well behaved lap sitters

As a extra have provisionally booked a Hotel in Ettington .Follow up to a trust house nearby on the Sunday . Overtime allowing. 2hrs 20 mins away.
No arm twisting now but I am sure I would make him welcome SWMBO is of same mind `chickens` but giving it a go as you are like minded people ,save the planet ....

It will just be me as dh is at Bestival that weekend. As I'm dependant on teen
sons being in to look after things I'm not sure how long I'll be able to stay.
