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.

We arrived after a long drive to find it was closed. No one had contacted us to let us know/cancel our booking. Extremely frustrating.

Did not utilize the restaurant but loved drinks in front of the fireplace at the Old Swan.

Lovely setting. Very tasty afternoon tea. Good sandwiches. The scones were really big! Could have had a little bit more jam and cream though. We couldn't fit the cakes in but were able to take them away - delicious. The lemon and elderflower tea was sweet and light.

This restaurant exceed my expectations; the food was delicious and the server’s couldn’t be more helpful. A first class meal, reasonably priced, first class service in the most beautiful restaurant, what more could you ask for? I would definitely recommend this place and will definitely be going back, in fact I can’t wait to go back!

Our dining experience was excellent. It was a 90th birthday celebration and the staff made sure the occasion was very special. We ordered afternoon tea and the quality was superb. Minster Mill met our high expectations and we will undoubtedly return in the future.
