Harden's survey result
“A true passion for inventive food is demonstrated time after time” at Gus & Kate Ashenford’s “friendly and efficient” former tearoom in a Cotswold village. “Meals are as great as ever, whatever Michelin says”, say regulars bemused by the loss of a long-held star in 2018 – “we’ve found exciting and memorable flavours in every dish”.
Losing a star in 2018 has done little to dent enthusiasm for Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s “brilliant” gem occupying a beamed ex-tearoom in a pretty Cotswold village. The “reassuringly small menu reflects the fact that everything is cooked to order”, with “utterly delicious” and “interesting” results.
“Well worth a detour” – Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s outfit in a “tiny”, beamed former tea room in this picturesque Cotswold village; the pair make a “lovely team” (him at the pass, her out front), and the “wonderful freshness” and “intense flavours” of the cuisine make for a “special treat”.
Marcus & Kate Ashenford’s “tiny gastronomic haven” in an “intimate” old building (a former tea room) is a classic “husband cooks and wife is front of house” kind of place, and consistently delivers an “unpretentious” yet “fabulous” experience. Service is “friendly and welcoming” and the food is “honest, generous, creative, and stylishly plated” (“even from the reassuringly limited menu, we still found choosing difficult!”)
