My family treated me to an evening out at the Wild Thyme to celebrate my graduation. My husband and I have been here several times and the great food did not disappoint. Service was attentive but not over bearing. Food was flawless and created multiple bouts of praise around the table and the atmosphere as always was special.

I stayed here for a few nights whilst working within the town. Pro's : The lady owner was friendly enough, rooms were well kept and clean as was the ensuite. Bed very comfy, usual tea and coffee amenities. Cons: My ensuite although very spacious only had a shower and although the shower was lovely you could only stand within a... More

Great food, cooked well with style but not poncey. It's fine casual dining where the important things are done very well. Not many foams and thank god I don't think the chef owns any tweezers. We were meeting a new friend for lunch and were offered hospitality time and a great overall experience. Thanks.

I arranged a surprise lunch party for 14 of us to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Right from the initial enquiry through to the actual event Sally was so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and the meal was utterly delicious. You would go a very long way to find such good food. I had scallops followed by venison and... More

I was told about this place be a colleague who works in prison catering. I had always thought he had no idea, however he has been elevated to s higher position after this recommendation. The place didn't seem to be well supported by the locals, who should show more support. The fining experience is the BEST that I have found... More

Recommended restaurant with a work colleague, he'd never been. The food was exceptional. Pigeon was outstanding, the local pork main was ...well surprisingly magnificent, and desert, well I don't do deserts, completely out of this world! Wine good, reasonably priced [as was the food]. Surprisingly empty, locals..support these guys this is special. For my fb friends...get down there soon!

A truly great place. Really interesting menu with plenty of choices and every one of them combining traditional, seasonal local ingredients. Beautifully presented but not fussy. The restaurant is very small and has a lovely cosy, relaxed atmosphere as a result. The staff are excellent, just the right attention levels. We weren't staying there, but if the rooms are anything... More

Is it to Chipping Norton to see friends who lived just across the road from this magnificent restaurant the food was some of the best food I've tasted in a very very long time. Beautiful presentation with unusual taste of game food on the menu at the moment, but I will say the monkfish on the main course was the... More

Friends bought my husband and I a voucher for a meal as a Christmas gift. The service, welcome and food were excellent. I would highly recommend Wild Thyme. We had two courses, the menu choices were interesting, starter of crab with poached egg was beautiful, presentation of all dishes was exceptional. Well done, we will return.

Thank Rosemary D
