Update from Wild Thyme


Dear Friends


It’s been a busy few weeks at Wild Thyme with the Autumn intake of students from Top School for the 6-week Branch Out and Cook programme graduating, Take Me Home, Dining Clubs and private events, we are ending the month on a wedding - the loveliest of couple chose us to cater for their 55 day guests and evening reception in Shipton-Under-Wychwood this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited to be sharing in this special day.


Just before we take a little half term break, we bring you November and December Take Me Home dinner menus as well as more details on the Christmas FarmED event. The Dining Club events in November and December are booking up, (full for 4 December) but there’s still tables available so do take a look at the menus and book yourself a treat – go on, you deserve it…

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.


September and October Take Me Home menus can be viewed on our Take Me Home page




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!"
