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.

    Food excellent and couldn’t be faulted, service was “Faulty Towers”. Order from pre dinner drinks was forgotten, 2 people finding but only 1 main turned up, all condiments empty, our table and the next one. Wine is expensive, especially for 125mm glasses. Maitre De needs to get a grip, cut the Harry Styles impression and govus on customer service

    What a beautiful spot for dinner. Our server was so lovely, the food was excellent we had lamb and the sirloin steak, cooked perfectly! I finished with the rhubarb pavlova which was scrumptious. Only issue we had was the music was a little loud to start with, but after we asked this was quickly turned down. We return soon for lunch and are looking forward to it greatly.

    we have been here a few times and the food has always been great, however this time was not so great especially given the price point, most disappointing was the dessert which was over baked and almost impossible to cut through. atmosphere and service were good as always

    We’ve been a couple of times before and have loved it .. alas this time not so much .. we had raved about The Oxbarn and went with friends who were visiting us and were excited to share our previous experiences. We started with a drink on the bar and waited several minutes to be served .. we were the only other people in the bar at that time .. into dinner at 6.30 and again there were only two other couples in the dining room which by the way is really lovely … we ordered and were asked if anyone had any allergies and both of our guests said dairy .. we quizzed them about the very limited menu options .. and then after all that one of my guests was served a starter with butter and cheese .. this was replaced but when the apology was delivered very swiftly we were told that they had been very busy over the weekend and they were all very tired and had been working long hours!!! Whilst I can sympathise, this is NOT what I needed to hear and felt very angry that he felt he needed to share and blame his hours .. !! Secondly we all had the same main which was the halibut and the portion was minuscule .. we are fish eaters and have eaten fish in other good restaurants in the area who have been far more generous with their portions .. again extremely disappointing .. and over salted .. by this time we were all feeling rather lack lustre however the deserts were excellent .. and then we were ready to leave rather than relax and have a coffee / tea .. so Oxbarn it will be a while until I return.
