Featured Gloucestershire Restaurants
Indian restaurant in Cheltenham
37 Bath Road - GL53
“Everything is elegant” at this “stylish and modern take on Indian cuisine”: the “setting oozes beautiful lighting and crystal clear glasses”, staff “go the extra mile” and the “artistic and appealing cuisine” delivers “excellent, refined flavours”.
. Le Champignon Sauvage
British, Modern restaurant in Cheltenham
24-28 Suffolk Rd - GL50
“Husband and wife have yet to miss a service” at this “sophisticated” and pioneering 30-year-old near the town centre, long renowned as one of the UK’s top culinary destinations. For its large fan club – foodies especially – it’s a “yardstick by which all else is measured” thanks to the dedication of chef David Everitt Matthias and his “wildly inventive” cuisine (which, for example, included foraged ingredients long before the current vogue for them); plus the “always interesting wine list”, about which his wife Helen is “exceptionally knowledgeable”. The ambience of this “self effacing, restrained and quiet” venue can – especially at lunch time – be somewhat “iffy” though; and ratings here nearly slipped due to a couple of unusually duff experiences reported this year.
. 5 North Street
British, Modern restaurant in Winchcombe
5 North St - GL54
“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”.
. Horse & Groom
British, Modern restaurant in Bourton On Hill
“What a find” – those who stumble across this Georgian gastropub, “in the heart of the Cotswolds”, and with a large rear garden, proclaim it a “fantastic” spot with a “destination restaurant”. It scooped GPG Pub of the Year in 2016 and “won worthily” by all accounts.
. Barnsley House
British, Modern restaurant in Barnsley
2016 Review: The “lovely” restaurant of this posh boutique hotel – sibling to The Village Pub just over the road – is “worth a visit even if you are not a resident”, thanks to its “exceptionally light” and “flavoursome” cuisine; “a tour round the famous garden adds to the experience” too.
. The Butcher’s Arms
British, Traditional restaurant in Eldersfield
Lime St - GL19
“Consistently wonderful food” wins very high ratings for James & Elizabeth Winter’s rural pub – a well-known foodie destination, where the cooking is considerably fancier than the cosy interior. “Be sure and book”.
