Edamame is an authentic Japanese eatery in Oxford. We serve our own style of home cooked food, offering various Japanese dishes, and sushi, at low prices. It is not a sushi bar or a formal Japanese restaurant. It is a very casual and friendly setting that might not appeal to people in search of…

“Wolvercote is a village that is part of the City of Oxford, England. It is about 3 miles (5 km) northwest of the city centre, on the northern edge of Wolvercote Common, which is itself north of Port Meadow and adjoins the River Thames. The Domesday Book of 1086 lists the village as Ulfgarcote (cottage of Woolgar; or Woolgar's place). The toponym had become "Wolvercote" by 1185. Wolvercote housing faced onto its extensive commons, which provided much of the community's livelihood. Some residents still have ancient rights on the commons. Geese rearing was once an important local activity, and a goose is still one of the village symbols. Horses and cattle are still grazed on Wolvercote Common and Port Meadow. In 1789 the Oxford Canal divided the village into two parts, and in 1846 the Oxford and Rugby Railway was built beside the canal through the village. In 1850 the Buckinghamshire Railway was completed through a tunnel and cutting along the eastern edge of Upper Wolvercote. The western edge of Upper Wolvercote parallels the canal at Wolvercote Green and fades into North Oxford suburbia to the east. Lower Wolvercote borders the River Thames at Godstow to the west, and Port Meadow and the canal to the east. The paper mill in Lower Wolvercote, former supplier of paper to the Oxford University Press, was once a major local employer. It was in existence by 1720, when it was bought by the 1st Duke of Marlborough. From 1782 the mill was leased to Oxford printer and publisher William Jackson, proprietor of the local newspaper Jackson's Oxford Journal which was published until 1928. The mill was entirely water-powered until 1811, when a steam engine was installed to power the paper-making process. The engine consumed 100 tons of coal per week, which was brought by narrowboat down the Oxford Canal, along Duke's Cut, and then down the mill stream which at the time was navigable as far as a wharf at the mill. Two of the narrowboats belonged to the mill, having been bought in 1856 and plying between there and the Midlands for 60 years until the mill sold them in 1916.Narrowboats continued to serve Wolvercote until at least the 1950s, by which time the mill used mechanical equipment to unload them.[5] The mill was rebuilt in 1955,ceased paper-making in 1998 and was demolished in 2004. The University of Oxford plans to develop the site as housing for its staff, but rising cost estimates and local objections have led the University to reduce the scale of its plans significantly. The mill stream takes its water from the nearby River Thames, and is crossed in Wolvercote at a former toll-bridge. The bridge bears a plaque in memory of two airmen of the Royal Flying Corps who were killed nearby in a flying accident in 1912. Part of Port Meadow was used as a military airfield in the First World War; the Royal Artillery also had a base there. In 1940, a camp was set up on the meadow for evacuees from Dunkirk. Parish church The Church of England parish church of Saint Peter is in Upper Wolvercote. It has a 14th-century west tower with a 15th-century window and doorway. In 1860 the church except for the tower was demolished, and rebuilt to Gothic revival designs by the architect Charles Buckeridge. The Norman tub font and a 14th-century south window of the chancel were retained, as well as 17th- and 18th-century monuments to the Walter family. Cemetery Wolvercote Cemetery is in the parish on Five Mile Drive between the Banbury Road and Woodstock Road, just north of the Oxford Ring Road. The graves include those of J.R.R. Tolkien and Sir Thomas Chapman, father of T.E. Lawrence. A paper sign in the parish church warns people that Tolkien is not buried in the churchyard, and provides directions to the cemetery. The writer and poet John Wain moved to Wolvercote in 1960.”

“This building, down a passage at the left-hand side of No. 130 High Street, is the original Kemp Hall. Today it is numbered 130A, but in the past the building has variously been numbered 129 or 129A. It is a beautiful Grade II listed building (ref. 1485/343). Alderman William Boswell, who lived at130 High Street, built the present Kemp Hall in his back garden in 1637, and this date remains over the doorway of the building. According to Anthony Wood (English antiquarian), "Kemp Hall" was an early university hall named after John Kemp, Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1870 Honour & Castle altered Kemp Hall for use as a police station. When the New Town Hall complex was finished in 1897 the police moved to purpose-built premises in Blue Boar Street, but the alleyway leading to Kemp Hall was still known as Blue Lamp Alley in 1937, forty years after the police had left. Now it’s called Kemp hall passage. From 1906 to 1925 the Kemp Hall Press occupied the building, and it was not until 1928 that it became a place to eat. Mrs Daisy Hoare opened tearooms here that year, but by 1930 she and her business had gone up in the world: she was Mrs D. Hoare MBE, and the tearooms were now the Kemp Hall Restaurant. By 1947 there was a new proprietor, S. R. Crawley, and the cuisine was "Anglo-Chinese". By 1962 the restaurant had become an Indian one, and was called The Moti Mahal. But its most famous period began in 1966, when André Chavignon opened La Sorbonne here: his chef in the early days was none other than Raymond Blanc, now the owner of the famous Manoir au Quat’saisons! La Sorbonne closed in the early 1990s, and a restaurant that has in its time been Chinese, Indian, and French is now Thai. Present day Chiang Mai Kitchen was set up in 1993, taking its name from northern city of Thailand, with the aim of providing delicious, authentic, cooked to order Thai food in a beautiful and unique historic setting. Much of the original oak panelling still remains along with a beautiful carved oak staircase. The restaurant is divided into 3 separate rooms catering for all party sizes, from a romantic evening for 2 up to a party of 33!”
