For us, providing what we believe to be the best sourced produce is the backbone of The Oxford Blue. Surrounded by the Crown Estate we are very privileged to have the opportunity to use her majesty’s game in our dishes. Wild animals graze in the surrounding area, which is literally on our doorstep!
Depending on the season, you can look forward to heather reared grouse from high up the flanks of Lochnagar, one of Scotland’s most famous mountains and red deer from the old Caledonian Pine Forest.
We are fortunate to be working with the game keepers at the Crown Estate who will be helping us in sourcing our meat and game locally which means it’s fresh and ready to eat. We will be ordering in-season game from the Great Park in Windsor including pheasant, venison, wood pigeon and mallard.
