Oxford Fine Dining @ The Polo
What better way to spend a slightly blustery, but thankfully dry, bank holiday Sunday at the end of April than watching the quintessentially English sport of polo, whilst enjoying some first class food and refreshments, at the Kirtlington Park Polo Club (KPPC) open day.

As newly appointed official caterers to the venue Oxford Fine Dining (OFD) served up a scrumptious BBQ outside in the fresh air, whilst in the VIP hospitality marquee, guests were treated to delicious bowl food and afternoon tea, all enjoyed with a glass (or two!) of fizz from the new OFD Fizz Bar.
Open from midday every Sunday, the KPPC Clubhouse is the perfect spot to watch the polo whilst enjoying a sumptuous hot and cold fork buffet lunch including Thai lemon chicken, as well as more traditional favourites of roast beef and smoked salmon, with vegetarian options also available. If you still have room afterwards there is vanilla panna cotta with strawberry compote and chocolate mousse topped with crumbled brownie on the menu for dessert. Later on in the afternoon why not treat yourself to a mouth-watering afternoon tea complete with sandwiches, irresistible home baked cakes and scones. All of the exquisite dishes on offer are freshly prepared and cooked from local ingredients by our team of talented chefs.
Set in the glorious English heritage countryside of Oxfordshire with the fabulous back drop of Kirtlington Park, KPPC is a really special venue that is suitable for a whole host of events. Originally formed in 1926, KPPC now boasts seven grounds and has an ever-increasing list of members.
