“…deliciously sophisticated food.” and “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.”

Common Toff

“…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.”

Oxford Mail

“…I snuck in at its launch for a gander and it’s definitely worth you knowing about…”. “The Nicholson’s yurt, like everything else this upmarket nursery produces, is beautifully presented…”.

Muddy Stilettos

“…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.”
