Standing proud beside the green, this combination of rural pub, bar & dining room isn’t short on character. It’s what most people hope to find in a Cotswold village drenched in scenic charm, & the kitchen is fully tuned in to its surroundings. Local produce crops up regularly on a smart menu that mixes modern British & European classics. A warm salad of dandelion leaves, smoked eel, lardons & beetroot followed by char-grilled lamb steak with garlic roasties, wild rocket & salsa verde is typical of the style. Chef/patron Sebastian Snow used to run Snow’s on the Green in London’s Brook Green & brings a level of quality & service that is exceptionally high for a country pub. The basics are carefully done, the details punctiliously attended to & the whole experience is immensely satisfying. If you’re not up for the full works, the bar menu is tip-top.
