There’s a culinary silver lining for Tysoe during this lock down – the ability to have a takeaway actually delivered! This is the first time in my life (except the 3 at university) where I have enjoyed such a privilege.
We’re usually out reviewing restaurants as part of my blog, The Weekend Tourist, but since the new measures, we’ve now tried three of our local eateries offering takeout.
If there are any I have missed – just leave me a comment below.
I’ll be regularly updating this post with new pubs, restaurants, eateries that I come across offering takeout – whether that’s collection or delivery.
You can’t get more local than these gals, Kate & Monica, moved into Tysoe at the beginning on May and have already been feeding the village from their Farm Pop Up with burger nights, steak night and Sunday morning breakfast club. Thoroughly recommend them! They guys, first-generation female farmers, look after their own herd of Herefords and produce a great meat box including their own burgers, steaks, home-cured bacon and sausages to name a few. Keep your eyes peeled on the blackboard by their gate at Herberts Farm or on their Facebook page.

𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆! I’ve teamed up with @happyherefords who moved to Tysoe just a few weeks ago and already they’ve been feeding the village through their Farm Pop Up! I’ve one BBQ meat box to win - perfect timing for #NationalBBQWeek. We’ve already had a sublime burger, steak sandwich and bacon bap. We’ll be back on Friday for Burger Night. The box includes 6 x quarter pounder burgers, 4 X pork and beef sausages, 2 x volcano burgers, 10 slices for home cured back bacon, 18 x chipolatas, 200g diced lamb (perfect for kebabs!) I love these guys because a) they are super local (so basically no food miles) b) it’s run by two first generation female farmers, Kate & Monica! They also really look after their herd - the meat box features produce they’ve hand reared and cared for. 1️⃣To enter all you have to do is follow @theweekendtourist and @happyherefords 2️⃣Like this post 3️⃣Tag a friend in the comments below - each comment counts as an entry.

The Peacock, Oxhill
We’re big fans of burger night at Peacock in Oxhill, so when we spotted their signature beef pattie (£12 each) on the menu it was a must. They offer collection and delivery and our burgers were the excellent meat feasts we’re used too. The churros was a good dessert. Be sure to order early, they get booked up.
Wykham Arms, Sibford Gower
Next up Wykham Arms in Sibford Gower, more oriental dishes on the menu and my satay chicken with noodles were delicious (£10 a dish). We didn’t have to wait long before dinner was ready for collection.
Bower House, Shipston-on-Stour
On Easter Sunday, we had the Easter Feast from Bower House in Shipston, again collection. Of the three, it has the most sophisticated menu. True restaurant quality food in our home – roast lamb shoulder, dauphinoise potatoes followed simnel spiced panettone bread and butter pudding. Still a reasonable £40 for two courses for two people.
The Bell, Shenington
We’ve not eaten here yet, but they are just six minutes away!
The Straw Kitchen, Whichford
This one is a bit further away, but we love it, as it does the best vegetarian food around (and of course non-vegetarian!) It’s only open weekends at the moment.
The Stag’s Head, Swalcliffe
Always a fan of the Stag’s Head, and we visited just before lock down for it’s Greek Night. You can order some of their greek classics for takeaway. They are delivering to the Sibfords. Check out their menu here: https://irp-cdn.multiscreensite.com/24fe0a06/files/uploaded/Menu%20Takeaway.pdf
Shukers Indian Brasserie has been a long favourite in the Friend household, although they are not delivering to Tysoe it’s only a short ride away in Kineton. They are still offering their full menu Wednesday – Sunday 5pm – 10pm, and have put in place social distancing measures. Takeaways are collected at the front door in an orderly fashion. https://www.shukursbrasserie.com/
Rose & Crown, Ratley
To my shame, I’ve never been to the Rose & Crown in Ratley, but the pub is offering takeaway Friday, Saturday (6pm – 8pm) & Sunday (midday – 2pm). They have also opened a community shop. https://www.roseandcrownratley.co.uk/takeaway-service/ Friday night is curry night!
Malt & Shovel, Gaydon
Potentially the furthest away to Tysoe in this roundup the Malt & Shovel in Gaydon, which is also offering takeaway menu including pub classics, pizza and lunch baguettes! They are open for orders until 8.30pm.
Indian Queen, Wroxton
Another Indian takeaway favourite, the team at the Indian Queen are now open!
Like I said a true takeaway renaissance!
