Excellent Internet hosting services backed by knowledgeable customer service and “real people” you can talk to, all at great prices.
Good, conveniently-placed health food shop frequently featuring buy-one-get-one-for-a-penny deals.
Not just a regular payphone, this is an iconic K2 kiosk almost exactly to Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s original 1924 design, and in fact the only example of such a thing in Oxford (although this particular one wasn’t originally from here): the other ‘red telephone boxes’ in Oxford are all of the latter, smaller K6 design. This particular phone box is a piece of architectural history!
Cheap drinks and sandwiches. Little space inside: becomes unnavigable when there’s a queue. Often run short or out of small denominations of coins (more often than you’d expect for a convenience store) and start accepting exact change only (although don’t expect to find that out until you reach the front of the queue).
A range of print services and reasonable prices, but somewhat disorganised: for my largest order, I was given a collection time and arrived only to find that they hadn’t yet started on it!
Three cash machines, although more often than not one is broken. Very often run out of £10 notes and often out of cash entirely or receipt paper. No sensible queuing space, so when there are queues they often send up on the road. A common target for card skimmer thieves: I’ve been caught out once here!
Spectacular selection of teas and coffees served by knowledgeable staff: if you’re looking for tea leaves or coffee beans, you can’t do better. Also sells various cookware, although sometimes a little pricey for what it is.
