“Somewhere between restaurant and gastropub” – Adam Taylor and head chef Matt Weedon took over in 2019 (replacing the longtime owners), and seem to be tweaking the format of this handsome Cotswold stone inn (built as a malthouse in 1641). “Especially for a summer al fresco lunch, the location is unmatched” and, by most accounts, “food is excellent” too. The £19 burger is the ‘cheap’ option – it’s mostly more ambitious fare, be it from the à la carte or six-course tasting option.

“Fantastic views when you can sit outside” and “a beautiful Cotswolds setting” are the constant at this attractively modernised country pub. In other respects, however, it’s all change here, as in August 2019 long-term owners Tony and Amanda Timmer retired, and chef for the last decade, Kuba Winkowski, moved on in September 2019. It remains to be seen whether new owner, Adam Taylor, will maintain the stunning standards that have made this such a hot destination, hence we’ve left it unrated till next survey.

“Sublime food” in the “breathtaking surroundings” of an “exceptional inn in idyllic Cotswold countryside”. Polish-born Kuba Winkowski, the Craft Guild of Chefs 2018 ‘chef of the year’, wins universal praise for his “wonderful” repertoire of dishes, which includes sturgeon with caviar and fennel. It is, though, “eye-wateringly pricey”“perhaps even more expensive than London, but worth it if you’re feeling flush”.

"Our initial welcome was good and polite, but the service quickly went downhill. There was a mix of inexperienced staff who couldn’t answer questions about the menu or take a dessert order. Then there was a maitre’d who was simply rude & sullen. I fed back the issues when we were leaving and was offered a drink to apologise, but we were leaving and on our way home. We have visited in the past and it was amazing, so we thought it would be the ideal place to finish off a weekend on the Cotswolds for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. So disappointed, won’t be returning again."
