Restaurant details


The chef

Our head chef, Leon Smith, is all about rummaging through nature's larder. Be it foraging for wild mushrooms, flowers and herbs, growing our own fruit and veg in the garden or sourcing the very best local meat and dairy suppliers, Leon's menu is an ode to the Oxfordshire countryside.
