“The space itself is beautiful – lovely decor, interesting art … There is an outside terrace where we had drinks before dinner. It was perfect for us and we’d highly recommend it for group bookings.”
“It was a wonderful working space allowing for both large group discussions and smaller break-out tables which had been kindly laid out with work supplies by the staff. Highly recommend if you are looking to host a similar event in Oxford!”
“We chatted to the waitress about the new private dining room and garden next door – really impressed with the owners drive to take the business forward – he is a bit of legend in Oxford.”
“We had our works Christmas Party yesterday – and could not be more positive about our experience at Gees!”
“We have always loved dining at Gees and decided to hire it as a private venue for our wedding. The whole evening felt effortless. The one comment that keeps getting mentioned by our guests again and again is just how amazing the staff were. I don’t think anyone’s glass was ever empty and everyone really appreciated the friendliness and attention to detail.”
“We hosted a company meet up for a day full of brain storming and creativity, and it’s safe to say we felt nothing short of welcome.”
“When I was a child, a very long time ago, this conservatory was a greengrocer and florist for those of us who lived nearby. Today, beautifully preserved by the owner Jeremy Mogford and with the original tiled floor it now has fabulous additions including an art-lined gallery for private functions and a glorious patio garden for warm summer dining.”
