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.

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”.

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).
