At the heart of a uniquely historic landscape is a place that moves with the seasons. A place that invites you to escape, unwind and indulge. A restaurant with rooms.

 The tiny, tranquil village of Sparsholt in West Oxfordshire abuts a fascinating section of the Ridgeway – thought to be one of Britain’s oldest roads. This chalky trail, running from Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, is punctuated as it passes over the North Wessex Downs by the extraordinary Uffington White Horse, a hillside chalk carving that’s thought to be 3000 years old and is visible for miles around. Alongside it sits a Saxon hillfort.

 It’s this undulating ancient landscape that serves as the inspiration for ‘The Sparsholt’ – a destination restaurant with rooms, nestled among the leafy lanes of the village. Following an elegant refurbishment, this former country inn is relaunching with new menus and a fresh philosophy. Overseen by Head Chef Luke Sutton, dishes are earthy, elegant and bursting with substance, with only the very best of the season making it to the plate. Guests are invited to discover a reimagined classic a la carte menu, full of mouthwatering British produce, together with a brand new terrace menu, comprising a selection of tasty bitesized snacks and small plates, including a duck leg bon bon with pickled walnut ketchup and tempura asparagus with brown butter hollandaise.
