Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Restaurant is closed until further notice.

Jeremy Clarkson's Diddly Squat Restaurant was opened Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire - the farm that is the centre of his Amazon Prime show, Clarkson's Farm. After initally having his planning permission rejected, Clarkson found a way to open up Diddly Squat Restaurant, which had room for 40 diners al fresco, with only four seats available inside. 'Small, mostly outdoors and very rustic' is how the restaurant describes itself, with Clarkson suggesting that ordering a beer and going to the bathroom are not as easy at Diddly Squat as they are at your local pub. 'We’ve done our best to keep you warm and dry, but this is England,' he writes in his own description of the restaurant.

Food-wise, the food is overseen by Hicce head chef Pip Lacey, so there's good reason to expect good things. With no set menu and diners being served whatever is available on the day, Lacey is free to craft a menu out of whatever is available on the farm (Diddly Squat Restaurant exclusively uses produce from the farm). 

Diners will be offered the best possible produce available on the day, and the restaurant does not accept walk-ins, so you'll have to book in advance. At the time of writing, diners can expect to pay £49 a head to experience Clarkson's vision of rural dining. Parties of four who wish to book the inside VIP table can expect to pay £69 at the time of writing.

Not all diners will get the same meal for the same price, though - the table will be served snacks, starters, a beef roast dinner and a pudding, but diners will not get a choice over what cut of beef they receive, as the restaurant sticks staunchly to its sustainable credentials. The home-made bread is sure to make a feature as it is made with Hawkstone lager for that crusty, but doughy on the inside, finish.
