CLOSED DOWN ... Move along, nothing to see here. We tried this back in May when I t first opened and was a temporary marquee and a mobile kitchen. Considering the conditions, the food and service was ok - nothing spectacular, but we did intend...More

Chariots and Cherry Pie takes inspiration from the fun and fearlessness of 1950s, when America's love affair with cool cars and fabulous food was in full swing. We've opened the doors to a temporary diner to give you a taste of what's to come. Situated off the A420, or Route 420 near Buckland in Oxfordshire, we're currently serving up a a selection of items from the full diner menu. In early June we'll then open the doors to our first 'permanent' diner on this same site off Route 420. What's more is that from early June we will also be launching at Route 420 our first Chariots Car Spa. So, you'll have the option of getting your car hand washed while you dine. Chariots and Cherry Pie will be the ONLY place where you can shine, dine and unwind in one location. Our passionate local team will be offering their warm welcome to everyone so, whether you're dining solo, looking for a place to break your journey or having precious time out with family and friends, we really can't wait until we open our doors to you! Enjoy Us On Tour The Cherry Pie Diner menu is also served out of our 1950s vintage-style, mobile catering trailer. It's going to be a regular feature all over the county but it's also ideal for upmarket occasions, weddings, parties and corporate events. We can even customise our menu to suit individual tastes and themes so please get in touch if you're interested in having us over at your celebration.
