We are having the most amazing sunshine for May! The kind that makes you think it’s earlier than it is so you actually have the energy to go out in the evenings so a couple of weeks ago we decided to go out for a meal at Gee’s on the Banbury Road in Oxford.
Gee’s is a distinctive, iconic Victorian Glasshouse offering a Mediterranean inspired menu. It’s a beautiful, light setting with all that glass and the little outdoor side seating area is looking lovely with all the beautiful potted plants and fairy lights.
I had the Pea, mint & pecorino risotto and the hubby had the 1/2 Wood fired guinea fowl, artichokes, kale & salsa rossa. For pudding I had coffee ice cream and hubby had the Chocolate nemesis & pistachio ice cream. Drinks were Rhubarb Toads to start – Sweet vermouth, Oxford Toad vodka,rhubarb and lime, followed by a bottle of Pouilly Fuisse 2013, Julien Collovray, Burgundy, France.
The meal was delicious and cooked perfectly. We had out first date at Gee’s 17 years ago and it still doesn’t fail to impress. It’s on the upper end price wise but a lovely treat for those warm, sunny evenings!
