Since opening our doors in February, The Yurt has had thousands of customers come to visit us, and we have received some rather lovely reviews. We are very proud of what we have achieved so far and believe the constant changes we are making, to accommodate our customers, have only made things better.

THE OXFORD MAIL
“…the beauty of The Yurt is that, as the menus change every month and everything is seasonal, fresh and local, they aim to keep their regulars, locals and fans on their culinary toes. If that’s the case I can’t wait for spring.”
“This year, we’ve made sustainability a primary focus, beginning with biodegradable napkins and fewer plastic bags, right up to minimising all food miles. We grow fresh vegetables and herbs on-site in our Kitchen Garden, and even save our food waste for a local family’s pig farm”
“…deliciously sophisticated food.” and highlighting the interior design as “brimming with green life. Such a big space may seem difficult to fill, but it has become an exciting English jungle, decorated by twinkling lights and reaching for the circle of sky that lights up the whole space. A photo will never do the beautifully wacky interior justice”
“…a food destination made of dreams!…housing a fantastic restaurant, the yurt itself is one of a kind – designed specifically for Nicholsons. Hand built in Devon, the only one you will currently find in Oxfordshire. It’s unique design and open-plan setting make this a top dining destination.”
“Wanting to combine the joys of browsing, planning and designing landscape gardens with the comfort and warmth of a homely café, The Yurt Café has created this special mix in the heart of Nicholsons’ plant centre”
