Old fields are usually reserved for wilting grass and dusty scarecrows. Turning preconception on its head, Oldfields eatery delivers a blossoming woodland of real British food with locally sourced produce and seasonal ingredients at its helm. The gastronome has established a Real Food Club which is aimed towards those with a keen tongue for British fare or a knack for home grown goods. In the spirit of food appreciation, Oldfields offers a tasty palette of courses including wine and beer tasting, chef for a day and a butchery maser classes.
Peckish patrons are offered a two course meal for two with a glass of wine each for £23 instead of £58. Guests of the eatery can enjoy a wide selection from the à la carte menu with offerings including half a dozen Carlingford oysters (£7.50) in the starters repertoire and slow-cooked pork shoulder (£16) in the mains. Those with a strong affinity to sweet tooth-appeasing morsels can opt to accessorise their main course with a dessert, such as banana and cinder toffee Eton mess (£6).
As well as receiving a favourable review in The Daily Telegraph, the food at Oldfields has been praised by diners who have particularly enjoyed the shin of beef, and have drawn attention to the efficient staff.
I have visited Oldfields many times over the years and have always been very happy. The food is great and the service is very efficient. If you like the finer things in life then Oldfields is the place

The lunch and early evening menu at Oldfields is great value for money. The 'pressed' pork loaf which I had for starters was really tasty. For main course I went for the fishcake and the poached egg which accompanied it was done to perfection. Other members of the party had shin of beef which was really tender. Highly recommended and the staff are always friendly.
