Featured Tetbury Restaurants
1. The Olive Tree, Queensberry Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Bath Russell St - BA1
Chris Cleghorn’s “very classy and well-composed” cuisine maintains this well-known basement dining room as the town’s most accoladed foodie hotspot (it’s the only restaurant in town with a Michelin star) and he offers a variety of menus (with vegan and vegetarian options) focused in the evenings on tasting menu formats, although – unusually – they allow you to pick out individual dishes from them if you don’t want ‘the full monty’ and to pay per plate. The dining room itself is well-appointed and pleasant, but the constraints of this basement space are griped about even in the most favourable of reports (“tables close together…”, “room is a bit spartan for food of this quality…”).
2. The Bath Priory British, Modern restaurant in Bath Weston Rd - BA1
“Wonderful food is amply delivered” at this posh country house hotel, riding high after the arrival of Michael Nizzero in January 2017, and where “a tour of the (“fab”) grounds by the head gardener following a meal makes for a perfect celebration and reason to return”; casual sister restaurant The Pantry is also worth a look.
3. Gumstool Inn, Calcot Manor British, Modern restaurant in Tetbury
With its “superior pub food in a delightful location” – a plush spa and hotel complex in the Cotswolds – this is far from your standard village boozer. But it has stood the test of time, and recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.
4. The Dining Room, Whatley Manor British, Modern restaurant in Easton Grey
Niall Keating put this Cotswold manor house (which, the history books tell us, was originally named ‘Twatley Manor’) ever-more firmly on the culinary map in October 2019, when it became one of 23 restaurants in the country with two Michelin Stars. All survey feedback on his eclectically inspired twelve-course tasting menu rates it between “very good” and “outstanding”, and this beautiful spot is a “great place for a romantic weekend away”.
5. The Potting Shed British, Traditional restaurant in Crudwell The St - SN16
“A superb pub, part of the Rectory Hotel” opposite, and likewise revamped by music biz owner Alex Payne a few years back. Whether it’s for the “first-class Sunday lunch (if you can get in)” or the “cosy” ambiance it’s “well worth a visit” by (nearly) all accounts.
6. Wilder British, Modern restaurant in Nailsworth Market Street - GL6
Sibling to nearby Wild Garlic, Matthew Bearshall’s more ambitious venture concentrates on a daily-changing eight-course tasting menu format. All locals agree that results are “skillful” in their realization, but opinions divide on the level of value – “outstanding” to some but “expensive for these parts” to others.
7. Jolly Nice Farm Shop British, Traditional restaurant in Frampton Mansell The Old White Horse Filling Station, Cirencester Road - GL6
“An atmospheric and charming farm shop (in a converted petrol station, on the A419) serving fabulous breakfasts and lunches with very tasty hamburgers from local meat”. “It’s been great to see JN progress from offering ice cream from an airstream caravan to butcher, deli, burger bar, Xmas tree seller...” (is there anything they can’t do?!).
8. The Bell at Sapperton British, Modern restaurant in Sapperton
A “charming, lovely and well-run village pub” that “has had its ups and downs, but seems to be on an ‘up’ at the moment”; and serving an “interesting but not over-ambitious menu”.
