The food at Barton House is under the direction of Executive Chef, Tom Sherry, who has a passion for seasonal organic produce. The kitchen garden, situated in the grounds of the house, provides Tom and his team with the freshest of seasonal ingredients all year round.
Our Executive Chef Tom has a passion for seasonal organic produce;
“I take inspiration from what is in season, whether it’s picked from our veg garden, orchards, or even foraged from the surrounding countryside.”
The start of each year sees Tom design his menus and vegetable garden together – helping to ensure we only use the freshest ingredients, grown organically and sustainably. The grounds feature a 100m2 vegetable patch, which produces over 60 different types of vegetable, and an orchard, which brings beautiful apples, pears and quinces.
When sourcing meat for our menus, provenance is key – using local game from Lockinge and Ardington Estate, Cotswold lamb and Oxfordshire beef.
