Niall Keating put this Cotswold manor house (which, the history books tell us, was originally named ‘Twatley Manor’) ever-more firmly on the culinary map in October 2019, when it became one of 23 restaurants in the country with two Michelin Stars. All survey feedback on his eclectically inspired twelve-course tasting menu rates it between “very good” and “outstanding”, and this beautiful spot is a “great place for a romantic weekend away”.

“Highly inventive, faultlessly executed, flavour-packed fusion cooking” with French, Japanese and Korean influences – Niall Keating has fully justified his appointment at the age of 26 to succeed Martin Bruge in the kitchen of this “beautiful golden stone Cotswold manor house”. For diners, there’s a real thrill in witnessing “a chef still developing his style, with some magical surprises adding up to a wonderful experience”.

“A new chef has brought new ideas” – many of them imported from Japan and Korea – to this luxurious hotel dining room, where the star turn is the “real indulgence” of its 12-course tasting menu, which won very solid (if not absolutely stellar) ratings this year. Martin Bruge – who departed in December 2016 – had been at the stoves for 13 years and won it two MIchelin Stars, and youngster 26-year-old Niall Keating, his successor will doubtless breathe a sigh of relief that in October 2017 he achieved one of the tyre men’s gongs after less than a year at the stoves.

For 30 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).
