Summary

Emily Watkins (a Blumenthal protégé) “was one of the first to bring such heights of cookery to the Cotswolds”, and this village pub is “more akin to a high-class restaurant”. The cooking – “big on sous vide and doesn’t compromise on quality of ingredients or creative execution”“manages to put a special touch on everything including the basics (like perfect bread and butter)”.

Summary

Blumenthal protégé, Emily Watkins's “interesting approach to food” has won a certain amount of renown for this “lovely” Cotswolds village pub. “Irresistible people watching” too “if you want to see the local landed gentry and their Barbour-clad children in full cry”.

Summary

“In a wonderful Cotswold village setting”, Emily Watkins’s “fancy” inn – famously a stomping ground of the ‘Chipping Norton set’ – offers sometimes “astonishingly good” food; “excellent local ales from the Cotsworlds and Hook Norton Breweries” too.

Summary

OK, it “gets flack for being the favoured haunt of the Chipping Norton Set”, but Emily Watkins’s “congenial” inn is well-praised for its “top-quality restaurant food”, “thoughtful service”, and – for those who stay – “the best breakfast ever”!
