Harden's says

Husband and wife team Richard and Solanche Craven have taken over the running of this 800-year-old country pub in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Whatcote. The recently refurbished pub will serve produce sourced from within 10 miles of the restaurant and game on the menu is ‘shot to order’.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

Do you think it deserves to be better known?

Write a quick review now using our restaurant diary service. That way it might catch our attention. Next survey, you can transfer your diary entry into our survey system. Everyone who contributes 5 or more reviews in our survey will qualify for a free guide.
