A beautiful setting with handsome vaulted ceilings and original oak beams makes the restaurant at Minster Mill the perfect place to savour fine contemporary, seasonal British cooking. Head Chef Tom Moody fuses contemporary and traditional British cooking and adds an appealing local twist, while supporting British farmers, fishermen and artisan producers. Though Minster Mill is barely a hundred years old, it is built on the foundations of a thousand year old mill that finds mention in the Domesday Book.
Using the best regional and seasonal ingredients, the Minster Mill menu features dishes like roasted Cornish turbot with creamed leeks, aged loin of Cotswold lamb with crispy belly or Merryfield duck with broccoli. Guests can drop by for a leisurely lunch, an intimate dinner or an indulgent afternoon tea.
Round off an excellent meal with a sweet treat like rhubarb with vanilla custard or praline fondant with lime curd. At the Minster Mill bar, savour a wide range of fine wines, champagnes and perfectly shaken classic cocktails.
Set in the gorgeous Cotswolds, the restaurant at Minster Mill is easily accessible from the A40 and is an 8-minute drive from the town of Witney.

Minster Mill is one of our favourite spots in Oxfordshire! Not only the food is consistently fantastic every time we visit, the customer service is amongst the best part of the experience! Every staff member is well-trained and superb! I personally recommend this establishment to all my friends and families when I know they are heading to Oxfordshire for a quintessential English treat!

Food was very good, would have liked to have the choice of a new menu on our second evening. Service very good. Breakfast on the Sunday morning good, good choice. Monday morning, my husband's poach egg was overdone.

We sat in the garden for afternoon tea. The surroundings are beautiful, food was good (but we only received three out of the four sandwiches on the menu). The service was good.

We requested an outdoor table by the river and enjoyed a delightful view. Staff service is attentive and food simple but deliciously prepared. A delightful first dining experience since lockdown.

Food not hot. Just luke warm. Long wait before food came, after we sat down. Also long wait between courses. It was a fairly good meal but not exceptional or memorable

The service was excellent. The waiting staff were not hanging round trying to hurry us along as my dad is a slow eater. The food was okay, not quite as good as Lower Slaughter, however good value. All 5 courses were enjoyable, I'd make a return visit.

Afternoon tea was not as good as I’d expected based on the photos on the website. The sandwiches and scones were fine (though the scones didn’t come with enough cream) the ‘cakes’ were very disappointing there were only 3, one was a tart literally cut in half and the lemon cake was inedible tasted like there was cleaning fluid in it. The final disappointment was being charged for my orange juice in lieu of tea or coffee. I don’t drink tea and coffee and therefore asked for orange juice instead only to find I’d been charged for it when the bill came! I’ve had afternoon tea at many venues who have never charged me for a basic soft drink replacement.
