The Ox Barn is a 56-seater destination restaurant under the direction of Head Chef, Charlie Hibbert. Rooted in a passion for the local land, food and entertaining, the carefully curated menus are farm-based and plant-inspired. His team and the gardeners at Thyme work together to select and grow the fruits, vegetables and herbs used to create his Modern British Countryside fare.

The nineteenth century former oxen house is the newest addition to the family of meticulously restored farm buildings. A state-of-the-art piece of agricultural architecture at its conception, Caryn Hibbert worked meticulously to preserve the soaring archways and original Cotswold stone rubble walls, to now house a modern, dining destination - including a contemporary bar and seven and a half metre Charvet open kitchen - to allow for an authentic, heritage-rich dining experience, enabled by today’s best culinary technologies.

    Overall enjoyable, just expected better. Food on the whole was great (though lemon curd and rhubarb was stingy on the generous serve of pavlova). Service was hapahazard - food intolernaces werent checked despite being on the booking, spoons were delivered after the dessert was already on the table, and we waited about 30mins for a black americano at the end of the meal. Lovely setting but music needed to cope with the potential echo in the beautiful barn was often a bit loud for our group.

    The staff were kind and helpful. The setting is lovely. Everywhere is immaculate. The menu is not ideal. My main course of sausage and lentils was not good. I would have liked more choice - perhaps a simple ham salad included in Starters and a simple quiche or a cheese pasta dish in Main.

    The Ox Barn set in 19th century agricultural architecture has splendid ambience , warm but professional service and delicious food. I had the beef tagliata with a bean salad. Served medium rare the meat was soft and tasty. I will go back again & again.

    We ate at late lunch time at the Ox Barn. We did not order starters, so we had a significant wait prior to the main meal. It was disappointing that no bread was provided at our table, as in other respects the service was excellent. The property was pleasant and after the meal we visited the grounds and the church.
