“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.

A comfortable, attractive old pub-with-rooms, where chef-owner Emily Watkins, ex-of The Fat Duck, “makes an effort to present an interesting menu” of modern British grub, and by all accounts succeeds – with feedback ranging from “dependable” to “fabulous”.

“A brilliant pub with exquisite food and superb atmosphere” is still the mainstream view on this well-known Cotswolds destination, where the ambitious kitchen (“humble local gastropub it isn’t”) is headed by chef Emily Watkins; but reports overall were more up-and-down this year (“somewhat variable”, “good, but not up to the hype”, …).

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)”.
