One review of “Malmaison”

    Lucy Howard

    23rd January 2017

    Expertly and elegantly transformed from a former prison, Malmaison has sat regally in Oxford’s castle complex for over ten years now, and its popularity shows no sign of abating.

    In addition to 95 luxurious rooms in the former cells (a little different to what the prisoners were used to), the Brasserie restaurant has become a local hotspot, and is the life and soul of the hotel. On Sundays, it pulls out all the stops with a lavish brunch, which offers an unlimited buffet, a selection from the brunch or main course menu, and a dessert – and you can eat as much as you like and linger as long as you like, and this, alongside exceptional staff who look after you from start to finish, makes for a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere.

    On the heaving buffet table you’ll find a a selection of unlimited hors d’oeuvres. After trying as many dishes as we could, we followed the buffet with delicate eggs benedict with perfectly yellow yolks, prime roast beef with a thyme and rosemary Yorkshire pudding, which came with tasty baby vegetables and gravy, and a smoked haddock fish cake with a poached egg on top, accompanied by a delicious honey and mustard sauce.

    After all that, we were getting satisfyingly full, but as it was all so good, we couldn’t resist a dessert to finish, and they certainly didn’t disappoint either – a classic sticky toffee pudding with pecan caramel sauce, an apple and blackberry pie with custard, served at the table, and an ingenious hot chocolate pudding which came with a cup overflowing with vanilla ice cream, white chocolate and marshmallows, with a hot chocolate sauce for pouring on top – children will love this one! We washed this down with carafes of red and white wine and some chilled prosecco, followed by excellent coffee.

    As well as wonderful food and an innovative menu with more than enough variety to suit everyone, Malmaison’s Sunday brunch is outstanding value too (£19.95 for adults, £9.95 for children). As well as making sure you arrive hungry and with an empty stomach, I also recommend enjoying cocktails in the stylish bar upstairs before or after your brunch (especially the mojito).
