Lady Bamford’s Cotswolds headquarters is “an experience worth travelling to” for a gawp at her art-directed farmer’s market cornucopia and a nibble of the ‘mindfully raised’ native breed meat and organic vegetables served in her posh ‘Trough’ café. Though deep in the countryside, expect Chelsea prices.

Lady Bamford’s “bouji” farm shop is “still doing exactly what it says on the tin” – the “perfect antidote to country pubs”, with its faux-rustic formula of “clean-eating and fresh local produce” consumed amid “posh locals and towny tourists”. Caveat? “We try not to look too closely at the bill as it’s usually extortionate!”

Adjoining possibly Britain’s poshest farm shop owned by Lady Bamford, this stylish café is perhaps most popular for brunch or a “casual pizza”, but does also open in the evening for supper nights.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
