Originally an old malthouse, this intimate pub/restaurant-with-rooms in the tiny village of Nether Westcote has recently been updated & thoughtfully refurbished. An informal bar offers
cask-conditioned ales, deep leather sofas & a huge inglenook fireplace, while two elegant, but informal dining spaces serve a decent, but pricey range of dishes made with locally produced
ingredients – including herbs & vegetables from the pub’s own kitchen garden. Specialities such as slow-cooked tenderloin of pork with homemade black pudding, damson & white beans or
pan-fried hake with crushed bacon & squash, ruby chard & ceps are typical of the seasonal line-up, while the extensive global wine list includes 25 recommendations by the glass & some
unsung boutique names. Outside, a sunny, heated terrace shaded by a huge sycamore tree affords far-reaching views over the gorgeous Evenlode Valley.
This was an unexpected treat. On visiting family in the Cotswolds to then have a family meal at The Feathered Nest Country Inn, in the village of Nether Westcote, Oxfordshire. We were a large party of 11 people, so it would be interesting how they would accommodate us. The decor in the pub/inn is eclectic, with some saddles as bar stools, a bit of taxidermy around, a bit pub like, a bit more restaurant like, cosy and yet slightly decadent.saddles as bar stools at the Feathered Nest It was also possible to BYO, which as a large party, we did – a mixture of Rhone wines, Hermitage, Condrieu… definitely on the favourite list. And as we were shown to our table I realised that all the waiting staff were of French origin… I did have to remind myself that I was in the middle of the Cotswolds, in United Kingdom! And to stop dropping into English with a slight French intonation!...
