Update from Wild Thyme

 

Dear Friends

 

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that supported Sally and Fiona on their marathon walk for Macmillan Cancer Support recently. They completed the walk in 30-degree heat and have raised a fantastic £1,921.25 including Gift Aid for this great charity.

 

It’s been lovely to help many of you celebrate recently, hosting a 50th birthday dinner in a nearby Airbnb, a Golden Wedding in a neighbour’s garden and a well-earned team dinner in the restaurant for Lawrence Home Nursing. We look forward to lots more celebrations over the coming months – please do chat to us if you’re thinking of planning something!

 

Take Me Home continues for those occasions where dining in is the best option and there’s a couple more Dining Club dates and menus to tempt you back into dining out. There’s a great British beef menu at the end of August and if like us, you’ve sadly had to cancel your trip to France this summer, then the Provencal Fish supper in September is right up your street! Rest assured that we continue to maintain the highest standards to help keep you safe.

 

Our first off site Dining Club at the stunning FarmED a couple of weeks ago was a great success and we are planning another one in October so keep an eye on the website for a date and menu in a week or so.

 

Enjoy the summer!

Take Me Home

 

This home dining experience has been so popular during lockdown that we have decided to continue with our weekly Friday service. It has become apparent that there are many reasons why dining out may not always be on the cards and our Take Me Home option offers as close to a restaurant meal as possible, oven ready to enjoy at your convenience.

 

They are also a great option for a personal treat, a gift or a small get together.

Cooking with our community

 

We have been so pleased to be able to put our skills and time to good use during this past year in working with St Mary’s Church, cooking their Mary’s Meals for families in our local community. We continue to build on this as we work together with them on the Branch out and Cook project.

 

This project aims to educate individuals and their families on how to cook cost effective, nutritious meals and together we have built a 10-week programme which involves Nick teaching here in the Wild Thyme kitchen. We’ve already had two lovely young Mum’s graduate and are looking forward to welcoming a couple of students from Chipping Norton School to the programme, after the easter holidays.

 

We are also delighted to be catering for 130 plus guests attending the Lawrence Home Nursing Charity Clay Shoot Reception and Dinner in late June; helping this amazing local charity raise much needed funds after a year with no events. www.lawrencehomenursing.org.

Here are some recent reviews…

Delicious

"Every single course was delicious and was presented with care and pride. Really enjoyed our evening out. The service was polite and friendly and the chef is excellent."

 

The best of the best!!!!

"I was recommended to go to this restaurant through a work colleague and I would highly recommend to everyone!! It is first class food and everything from the bread, through to desert was second to none!! The flavours and infusion of food left us totally satisfied but not overly full which you usually feel after a 3 course meal. Wine list was also amazing, service fantastic and can’t wait to go back!! Thank you thank you thank you."

 

Worthy of a Michelin Star

"Delicious food. Helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff. A true gem of the Cotswolds. You'll need to book though – it's popular and rightly so!"
