Update from Wild Thyme
We hope you have been enjoying this lovely weather as we have. It's an emotional time for us as we host the last of our Dining Club events at our Chipping Norton premises but we are busy making plans for the future of Wild Thyme so do remember to stay subscribed to be the first to know what's going on! As we write, we still have a couple of tables left for both dinners on Saturday, 2 and Saturday, 16 July so do be quick if you'd like one last visit.
Here are our July Take Me Home menus, great for get togethers without the hassle of cooking or as an end of week treat at home. We will be taking a break during August as we have a busy and exciting month, with the imminent arrival of our first grandchild! For those of you that don't know, our lovely Lily is due a baby girl on 7th and we are super excited for the next generation…

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.
The April Take Me Home menus can be viewed on our Take Me Home page
Running at our premises in Chipping Norton till the 23 July, these are set dates where you can spend a lovely evening at Wild Thyme enjoying Nick’s great food.
The menu is set (so there’s not even the hassle of deciding what to eat) to be the freshest, delicious dishes of the season, with zero food waste. £60 per head including a glass of fizz or £85 per head with wine pairing. Add in a cheese course for £10 per guest. We do of course continue to cater for specific dietary requirements so just ask if you need an alternative or adapted dish.
Our next dining club is:
Saturday, 2 July
Nick’s breads, olives & smoked almonds
Pan fried Cornish mackerel & parmesan, new season peas, crispy pancetta
Pan roasted Merryfield duck breast, ravioli, summer greens, baby onions, oyster mushrooms, green peppercorn sauce
Hot, dark chocolate fondant, salt caramel centre, ginger ice cream, peanut brittle
Visit our Dining Club page for our upcoming events.
Wild Thyme is available for private dining either in the restaurant or in your own home. Minimum numbers are10 for either venue but are a maximum of 30 at the restaurant with no limit at your own home.
Menu suggestions are available on our Private Dining page but we are of course happy to discuss other menu ideas with you. If you would like to chat about your event, in the restaurant or at home, please call us on 01608 645060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Cooking with our community continues!!!
We have been so pleased to be continuing to put our skills and time to good use 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 with local families and the Top School students.
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 had an amazing evening at FarmED cooking some delicious Diddly Squat Farm Shop lamb for The Branch Trust thank you of all their incredible Covid volunteers. We were delighted to part of this initiative by cooking so many meals for the community. Over 150 gathered and we were honoured to be thanked by Oxfordshire’s new Lord Lieutenant, Marjorie Glasgow.
Here are some recent reviews…

"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!"
