Muddy says: this buzzy Oxford bar brings a little slice of sunny Spain to Cowley Road.
If you’re going out for an evening in Oxford but not sure where to go, get thee to Cowley Road pronto for a wander. The student-y, vibrant, boho thoroughfare is blissfully tourist-free and rammed to the gills with cool bars.
Of which this is one – as the name suggest, the colourful Café Tarifa is a buzzy, busy Spanish bar so bring on the Rioja and mojitos I say. Hungry? I’d go for shakshuka eggs, or maybe a manchego and serrano ham platter. And if the sun makes an appearance, head to the terrace and bask in the rays – squint and you could almost be in Andalucia.
