At Malmaison Oxford, you don’t have to feel like you have to stay indoors in this former prison. Feel free to enjoy a cool breeze and the summer sun as you sip on a refreshing cocktail surrounded by greenery and great views from our al fresco areas. Spending time in the open air here really does have its benefits. It would be a crime not to.


Roof terrace

Marvel at the stunning setting as you raise a toast from the rooftop terrace. The roof terrace at Malmaison Oxford is ideal for drinks receptions of up to 150 people


Excercise Yard

We're staging a breakout. Everything tastes so much better when accompanied by the sweet air of freedom, under a deep blue sky and the rays of the summer sun. You can choose to enjoy our delicious dishes from the summer Prix Fixe menu or a la carte in our beautifully converted prison exercise yard, all with the same superb service and attention to detail that you get in our atmospheric brasserie.

Or simply take your drinks out of the clink, with fresh Malchemy cocktails and a range of wines and beers perfectly suited to longer, warmer afternoons.
