Clay Oven & Café
Fieldfare Café is a new development at Thistledown Farm. During Whitsun half term and throughout the summer holidays we’re open every day, offering gourmet coffee, fine teas and a wide range of cold drinks as well as a selection of homemade cakes and patisseries. Food from our clay oven and barbecue is served Friday, Saturday and Sunday (please see the Opening Times page for details). We’re fully licensed (no BYO) and stock local beers, ciders, wines and even local gin! We also serve wines and prosecco from further afield!
Please see our Menu for the week’s dishes. All of our food is cooked using a clay oven which we made ourselves, or our ceramic barbecue. Much of the food is influenced by Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, with lots of herbs and spices used to create fresh and flavourful dishes. The menu is limited, and it’s our intention to only offer a small range of fresh foods. Nearly all of the veg we use is Organic and all of the meat is free range and local (although occasionally we may have to source from elsewhere). We also use our own lamb and our polytunnel supplies some of the vegetables, salads and herbs.
The last Sunday of each month often sees a guest chef or two in the café cooking up speciality dishes, usually using seasonal produce. This lunch is booking only. Please see the Events Calendar for these events and others.
We have seating indoors and outside, including tables under a clear roof so you can sit out even when it’s raining. Fieldfare is set in acres of beautiful Cotswold valley and café visitors are free to explore the upper field around the café (lower fields are strictly for campers). Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times.
