It's that wonderful day of the year again, happy Pancake Day.

Shrove Tuesday, in the Christian calendar, marks the day before Lent which is a season of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter.

The aim of Pancake Day is to use up all your indulgent ingredients, but for those who are not keen chefs, or are simply busy, there are some great places to get pancakes in Oxford today. 

It can also just be much safer for someone else to flip pancakes for you!

Here are 6 great restaurants in Oxford that serve delicious pancakes, where to find them, and what people have said about them on TripAdvisor.

1) The Handle Bar Cafe and Kitchen

28-32 St. Michaels Street, Oxford OX1 2EB England

A great spot, with great food (and bicycle parking), although you should expect it to be busy.

RachelMH18 from Tripadvisor said: "Delicious brunch, really recommend it for a place that serves locally sourced and slightly quirky dishes.

"It was very popular so I'm glad we booked but the turnaround of both food and tables is rapid so you won't queue for long. It felt very 'Oxford' to me, would definitely go back."

2) The Breakfast Club

Queen Street 303 The Westgate, Oxford OX1 1PG England

For those American blueberry pancakes you've been craving, this is the place to go. Mind it is very difficult to get a spot at peak times!

Rhilula on TripAdvisor said: "Take a bow the breakfast club Oxford!!! You are a lovely lot!"

3) Glut

Pancake day is Mardi Gras, or 'Fat Tuesday', in French so this is an aptly named venue for a great brunch. 

Joshuasimpson95 on Tripadvisor said: "I cannot recommend Glut enough. Great atmosphere, really friendly staff, impeccable service and the food is unbelievable."

4) Happy Friday Kitchen (Vegan)

282 Cowley Road, Oxford OX4 1UR England

There is no need for the Vegan's out there to miss out. This 100% vegan restaurant has you covered. 

Rkeenan1606 on TripAdvisor said: "Fantastic food! The portion size was much bigger than I was expecting and I'd ordered loads to sample as much of the menu as possible. We left absolutely stuffed. The service was great and the staff were very friendly."

5) Dirty Bones Oxford

Westgate Oxford Roof Terrace, 304 The Westgate, Oxford OX1 1PG England

Pancakes are a staple of New York City comfort food, and this restaurant delivers that (quite literally, they do takeaway as well).

Domoooo on TripAdvisor said: "What a wonderful place, it feels really nice being in the place and has a sort of uniqueness to it"

6) Bill's Oxford

North Gate Hall Hall St. St. St. Michaels Street, Oxford OX1 2DU England

Bill's is a safe pair of hands, you can trust you'll get a great pancake here.
