Nestled amidst the rolling fi elds of Thame, The Oxfordshire’s Sakura restaurant is truly one of a kind. Upon entry, your attention will be immediately grabbed by the panoramic windows that run the full length of the restaurant, offering expansive views of the stellar grounds – best enjoyed over an ice-cold beer or a dark and fruity Rioja tempranillo.
To begin, why not try the soft and crisp crabcakes with poached hen’s egg, or opt instead for the incredible pork belly and scallops? Both will prove exquisite preludes of the culinary delights to come. If you like steak, you’ll love the large rib-eye with its quality griddling and accompanying hand-cut chips. Otherwise, the rosemary and garlic lamb rump comes cooked to a delightful shade of pink, and will astound your tastebuds. Head chef Craig Heasley has pulled out all the stops to create the Sakura’s memorable delicacies, with each dish promising to be textured and balanced, and beautifully presented. The desserts are as soothing as a visit to The Oxfordshire’s spa. Choose from mouthwatering options like toffee parfait with caramelised popcorn, and the Sakura’s signature sweet, chocolate fondant with mint ice cream. You do not need to make use of the club’s facilities to visit the Sakura, though why not check those out too? Whether you’ve spent a day on the green or simply arrived for dinner, the Sakura’s elegance, style and class set this restaurant apart.
