Eat & Drink
The restaurant does not serve dinner but your hosts keep an up-to-date list of great places to eat nearby. Stay in for morning coffee with toasted crumpets and wicked afternoon teas with homemade scones, cakes and pastries. The light lunchtime menu includes home made spicy Welsh rarebit and Cassoulet. All ingredients come from local suppliers, with granary bread, smoked salmon, clotted cream and fresh garden produce delivered each day are from Cotswold farms.
There’s an honour bar with a fine array of old malts, cognacs and Armagnacs, as well as home made damson gin and quince vodka. Prefer to stay upstairs? Have drinks served to your bedroom – or bathroom. Enjoy a glass of champers in your bubble filled tub.
Full English breakfast is served until 9:30am. Try the smoked haddock, home poached fruit compotes, special-recipe muesli and local honey.
Available morning and evening.
