If you're looking for fabulous food in a beautiful setting, the Cotswolds is the place to be! We have some wonderful, atmospheric restaurants serving the best of local, seasonal ingredients prepared with creative flair by some of England's leading chefs.
With one of the finest restaurants in the Cotswolds, Lords of the Manor Hotel has held a Michelin star for 8 consecutive years. The Cotswolds provides inspiration and ingredients for many of Head Chef Richard Picard-Edwards’ wonderful dishes. Without sourcing local for local’s sake, Lords of the Manor benefit from some excellent local and regional producers, fixing this Michelin star restaurant firmly in its Cotswolds territory. Local suppliers start with an excellent local cheesemaker, just down the lane.
Situated in the historic spa town of Cheltenham, Le Champignon Sauvage has won many accolades including its 2 Michelin Stars. David Everitt-Matthias’ outstanding food is a cross between the terroir and modern French, with very original touches, featuring the finest local ingredients and the bounty of local field and woodlands. Set menus start from £26 so this is a really affordable chance to try Michelin star cooking!
The Wild Rabbit is a reinvention of the traditional English inn – a place to eat, drink and sleep – and has recently been rewarded for its fantastic food with a Michelin star. Executive chef Tim Allen has put his own distinctive style to the menus, with seasonal dishes celebrating everything that is great about local produce, much of which is grown at nearby Daylesford Organic farm.
Classical French ideas inform the wonderful cooking at 5 North Street in the delightful Cotswold town of Winchcombe. Chef and owner Gus Ashenford, who trained under Michel Roux Snr at the 3 Michelin Star Waterside Inn, provides a unique take on modern British food. The best of seasonal produce is used to create flavoursome dishes and sensational flavours that are cooked with flair and creativity.
The Michelin star restaurant at the heart of The Bath Priory hotel offers a memorable culinary journey with a focus on fresh local produce, flavour and balance to create exciting, modern British dishes. You’ll also be rewarded with magnificent views across the hotel’s award-winning gardens.
