Absolutely brilliant. My mum and I went for festive afternoon tea today.. it was amazing. The selection of food was really good and so tasty. 
The staff were welcoming, friendly and very attentive. 100% recommend The Grocer Chef, it’s a hidden gem that accommodates for everyone.

Very friendly cafe in a tranquil setting. Dog friendly with water bowels and they serve dog friendly ice-cream. The Grocer Chef is everything a country cafe should be.

Absolutely loved this place so much so I’ve since returned with all my family for breakfast and rebooked for High Tea with my mum.

We visited on a Saturday morning. What a find! A beautiful small but perfectly formed eatery in a beautiful village. 2 x full English with toast and coffee for £8 each.
The best for miles and this is now our number one brekky location.
Dog friendly and people friendly!
Who knew?

We came here after a morning walk having preordered our food at 10am. They were well able to cope with a group of 15 for lunch without putting off their regular customers. Most of us had main courses, which are reasonably priced at about £7 to £9. The food is of course café style with most courses coming with chips and salad, but it was served promptly, and the service was friendly and attentive. We will be back!

I've visited the Grocer Chef many times, whilst out cycling, after walking around Ardington and nearby Lockinge and when I've simply passed by. This small independent establishment is great and definitely worth a visit. The food is homemade and fresh as well as being sensibly priced. The staff are always very pleasant and attentive. The garden is kept nice and in summer it is bliss. There's also a village shop attached to the café so very handy. All this under one roof in a rural Oxfordshire village is a real gem.

Amazing little place. Take my uncle who has downs syndrome in there twice a week for breakfast. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We are always having a laugh with them. The food is also fantastic and if something you fancy isn't on the menu they will always try and accommodate. Well done Grocer Chef!!

Always lived locally but never been. Visited today with friends and all our children and dogs after a walk to the Millenium Stones.
What a treat! We were welcomed at the door and a large table was found for us and freshly laundered towels were handed to us for the dogs. High chairs were provided for our babies and colouring sets for the older child in our group.
Table service was given and a great choice of food and drinks. The quality of food is superb and delicious. Great value for money and great service.
Baby changing facilities were excellent

It's hard to find places to accommodate babies and dogs especially with good food. This place ticked all our boxes. THANK YOU. We will be back!
