Olio Restaurant & Terrace
Olio's ethos is all about the best of British home-cooked food, served in elegant yet relaxed surrounds – with warm hosting and local provenance at its heart. Expect a light-filled restaurant, accented with luxurious marble, statement art and planting. In warmer weather enjoy our fabulous Mediterranean inspired terrace, complete with outdoor kitchen and beautiful views of the grounds.
Executive chef, Jamie and his team, love nothing more than seeking out the best local ingredients to create beautifully-presented dishes you really want to eat, using local produce at its peak and treating ingredients simply. From the finest cuts of meat to super fresh seafood and home-grown veg, dishes are designed with maximum flavour in mind.

Supper’s on the table
Whether you’re in the mood for a cosy dinner for two, a family feast or a light supper, Olio's modern British dishes have local provenance at their heart. Our seasonal menu focuses on the best produce from trusted local suppliers, such as beautiful cuts of meat and the freshest fish and seafood – cooked simply to let the quality of the ingredients shine – and deliciously nostalgic desserts.

Treat yourself to afternoon tea
We can’t think of many better ways to catch up with loved ones or friends than over freshly-baked cakes, scones with clotted cream and jam, delicate sandwiches, savoury favourites and a proper pot of loose-leaf tea and weather permitting choose the Olio terrace, or perhaps a blanket in the grounds
Choose between our traditional cream tea, classic afternoon tea or make it extra special with a glass (or two) of champagne. We also offer vegan and gluten free afternoon teas on request, which need to be booked in advance.

Drinks and cocktails
When the clock strikes 5pm…
The cuckoo’s call will let you know that it’s time for your perfectly-mixed G&T.

Comfortable, eclectic and full of cosy corners, drop in for drinks and snacks and kick back and enjoy a taste of the good life.
Behind the stoves
Meet the chef
Classically trained in British and French cooking, executive head chef Jamie Forman started his career at Michelin-starred country house hotels and restaurants, including the renowned Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Having worked with Homewood's owners Ian and Christa Taylor before in the Cotswolds, Jamie's very well placed to deliver the new, accessible yet elegant restaurant Olio. He describes his food as being all about flavour and is an advocate of no-nonsense cooking using the best of seasonal, British produce.
Breakfast of champions
Start your day in the best possible way
Breakfast at Homewood is relaxed and served on the terrace if the weather allows, or in the elegant surroundings of Olio if not. There's a Somerset board to start with a selection of granola, pastries, yoghurts, smoked salmon, cured meats and fresh juices, with tea or coffee, before choosing whether to really set yourself up for the day and have something freshly-cooked to order from the kitchen.
Served daily 7.30-10.30am
