In addition to being featured in the guide, The Yurt was identified as one of the inspectors’ six favourite new additions for June 2022, alongside the London based 1890 by Gordon Ramsay. The feature described ‘Unfussy dishes that are big on flavour and come with some Mediterranean influences; brunch is served every morning; and a bright and breezy service comes from a capable young team’. The Yurt is renowned for its unique dining experience, summed up by the Michelin inspectors as ‘cosy and characterful’.
With only 25 Oxfordshire-based restaurants being featured, we are honoured to find ourselves listed with the best in the county. Judging is undertaken over a series of visits by a group of Michelin inspectors who base their assessments on five objective criteria:
- quality of the ingredients used;
- mastery of flavour and cooking techniques;
- the personality of the chef in his cuisine;
- value for money; and
- consistency between visits.
The Yurt offers dishes from skilled food connoisseurs with imagination and ingenuity behind their craft. All menus offer a variety of dishes using seasonal ingredients and cater for all dietary requirements. In our drive for sustainability, we are focusing on locally sourced produce and aiming to offer fresh, simple food that is balanced in flavour and presented with flair. Our menus are curated by award-winning head chef, Andrew Carr, who takes pride in introducing new ideas to customers. Combining this with a beautiful setting provided by the Yurt structure, visitors really are guaranteed a unique and special experience.
