About Ox Barn Restaurant at Thyme

The nineteenth-century Ox Barn at Thyme was formerly home to the oxen that once ploughed the nearby fields.

State-of-the-art agricultural architecture in its time, Caryn Hibbert worked meticulously to preserve the extensive beams, soaring arches and original Cotswold stone rubble walls.

Now, it’s a contemporary restaurant that has stayed true to its agricultural roots.

Using picked-that-day produce to deliver food, which is all about the best ingredients, cooked simply, the menus change in line with the gardener’s harvests and produce seasonality.

Opening hours:
Lunch from noon to 2.30pm daily
Dinner from 6.00pm to 9.00pm daily

Good to know:
Thyme is a grown-up destination, and children over 12 are welcomed for breakfast and dinner service in the Ox Barn restaurant.

Families are welcomed for lunch. However, if you are going with your young ones, the restaurant asks that they remain seated throughout their meal.

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed inside. However they are welcome on the Ox Barn terrace.

If there is no availability online, the restaurant may be able to accommodate your request. Email reservations@thyme.co.uk or call 01367 850174 for further information or help with your reservation.

The menus are subject to change according to the seasonal produce available from our kitchen garden and farm.

  • Drive through the village with Thyme on your left, and you will pass the Swan Pub on your right. Keep left.
  • At the next opportunity, take the next left signposted to Lechlade.
  • Continue driving out of the village to the top of the hill, where you will see a sign on your left to Thyme’s Estate Drive.
