The Ox Yard restaurant

Mince Pies at Buckland Abbey, Devon

Mince Pies at Buckland Abbey, Devon

What better way to start or finish a lovely winter walk or visit to the Abbey than in our lovely restaurant.

Be sure to look out for dishes made from produce grown right here on our estate - it’s not uncommon to see a gardener pushing a wheelbarrow, piled with salad grown in our traditional walled Cider House kitchen garden, to the kitchen where our chefs serve it up. It doesn’t get more local than that.

Throughout December, there is a festive menu on offer featuring home cooked delights, both sweet and savoury, as well as favourites such as mince pies and mulled wine.
