The Ox Barn at Thyme
The nineteenth-century former oxen house is now The Ox Barn restaurant under the direction of Head Chef, Charlie Hibbert. A state-of-the-art piece of agricultural architecture at its conception, Caryn Hibbert worked meticulously to preserve the soaring archways and original Cotswold stone rubble walls. Now, it's a modern restaurant with a contemporary bar and seven-and-a-half metre Charvet open kitchen.
