Preserving the building’s heritage and original design elements such as oak wooden panelling, our Morse bar offers a broad range of bespoke and classic cocktails, wines and speciality beers.

The Snug

Taking inspiration from the celebrated British cartoonist Osbert Lancaster, an erstwhile resident of the hotel who paid for his keep in paintings, The Alice illustrations bring together Emery’s menu, the city of Oxford and ideas from the story Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
