Very charming couple running it and great surroundings with a romantic courtyard. Service was first class and the food was creative, local, and good. This little spot is well worth a visit if you are anywhere near the area. They have three charming well-priced rooms too if you are looking for a place to stop for a night.

My fiancé and I were on an exhausting journey from South England to Manchester and decided to stop in Chipping Norton for an overnight break. First impression: very cosy little restaurant, charmingly decorated, sophisticated feeling to it. We were welcomed by one of the owners, who promptly sat us at a table and recommended the locally brewed beers. I had... More

After seeing that Wild Thyme was number 2 on the Telegraph's list of the 'Best Cotswolds Restaurants', we booked a table for dinner during our recent weekend break. We are SO glad we did. We would have walked right by without a second glance if we hadn't booked in advance because the restaurant is nothing remarkable to look at, but... More

Recently discovered this little gem of a restaurant in Chipping Norton. We've eaten there twice and enjoyed every mouthful of every course. The service was attentive and the wine very nice indeed (I am a sucker for Voignier - but theirs is especially good). Only frustration is that despite only living five miles away, it has taken us six years... More

My girlfriend and I tried this recommended restaurant last Friday evening. The place was packed and we were lucky to get a table. Service from the moment we sat down was very attentive but not overly so. Our starters were divine (goats cheese on beetroot and fresh crab with pink grapefruit - to die for), unfortunately the main course did... More

This is a small but popular establishment. We stayed overnight and made use of one of the three bedrooms but we were attracted by the menu. Don't let the front of the building put you off - it looks a bit shabby but this is deceiving. The style of the interior is relaxed but stylish and the ground floor only... More

I arranged an overnight stay here with 2 friends based on the trip advisor reviews and we were all very impressed. The restaurant is small with a relaxing atmosphere and the meal and service were really first class. I part own and manage a restaurant myself so am invariably a bit disappointed but the meal at the wild Thyme really... More

"Less is more": confusing flavours, a lot of flavours, over complicated plates. Wine list is good. The service was also very good.

I have a catering business of my own, and so when I get chance to get away for some relaxing time, I take it pretty seriously! I stayed with two other friends in the rooms at the restaurant, and had a meal on the Saturday night of our stay. The restaurant was full to bursting, but attention to detail was... More
