The Richmond Hotel, Oxford

Our restaurant


Our restaurant, Al-Shami, serves Lebanese food between noon and midnight every day.

In Lebanon the Arab world meets the Mediterranean and our food has all the virtues of what is now described as The Mediterranean Diet.

Our food is naturally healthy. It uses the highest quality produce of sun, soil and sea: grains and pulses; vegetables which are grown for flavour rather than size; olive oil; cheese and yoghurt; herbs and spices. We eat fish and meat (mainly poultry and lamb) but they form a smaller part of our diet than has been common in the west.

Our restaurant brochure, which includes our menu and wine list, can be downloaded via the Publications section of this website.
