Tastes of summer at the Ashmolean

Experience a sumptuous new seasonal menu and a special offer for fine dining at the museum

Whether you opt for the impressive galleries lined with classical statues or the contemporary Rooftop Restaurant with its breath-taking views of the city, the Ashmolean Museum serves as a spectacular setting for a special dinner.

The brilliant surroundings are perfectly matched by a fresh new menu, bursting with all the colours and flavours of the season. The Ashmolean’s catering partners, Clerkenwell Green, say:

When the summer season hits with warm sunshine, green grass, longer days and balmy evenings we have time to enjoy the abundance of fresh produce available to us.
Time to exploit the season’s offerings. Asparagus, Jersey royals, peppers, radish, watercress, rhubarb, tomatoes, soft herbs and baby leaves to name but a few.


While an atmospheric venue and top quality catering combine to produce an exclusive, opulent event, organisers will be pleased to know that dining at the Ashmolean also offers great value for money thanks to their summer special offer: throughout June, July and August, the Ashmolean is offering an additional complimentary canapé for every drinks reception booking received!
