This high-profile Cotswold gastroboozer near Chipping Norton is “always worth a visit” for its “relaxed ambience” and “consistent and tasty” food, from an “interesting menu which uses great local produce”. Matt & Katie Beamish, who have worked for luminaries including Raymond Blanc and Fergus Henderson, took over a few years ago from Emily Watkins, who put the pub on the map – and have created a local group by snapping up The Hare at Milton under Wychwood and The Crown at Church Enstone, too.

This “great Cotswolds gastropub” is a well-known watering-hole near Chipping Norton, with “excellent, hearty and delicious cooking”, “majoring in wood-fired dishes” including scallops in the half shell, iceberg lettuce, giant tiger prawns, gurnard fillets and Barnsley chop. Matt & Katie Beamish took over from GBM winner Emily Watkins a couple of years ago.

It’s all change at this old inn, which rose to prominence under ex-Fat Duck chef and GBM winner Emily Watkins – and was recently taken over by Matt & Katie Beamish, who have previously worked with the likes of Raymond Blanc, Jamie Oliver and Fergus Henderson. New head chef Johnny Pons continues its winning mix of gastro staples and Med-slanted British dishes, and early reports are “superb”“would go back to the Cotswolds just to eat here”.

“Quiet and beautiful surroundings” set the tone at ex-Fat Duck chef Emily Watkins and husband Miles Lampson’s old inn, in picture-perfect Kingham, opposite the village green; inside marries ‘pubby’ appeal (including a gastro comfort-food bar menu) with finer British cuisine, often based on old Cotswolds recipes.

For 33 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).

"Great menu mixing pub standards with more ambitious fare, but maybe too ambitious as it failed to zing. It is now open on Mondays and maybe it was chefs night off."
