Best Gastro / Rural Pubs in Cotswolds


Just a quick message for recommendations on the best pubs in the area that serve good food for lunch and dinner. Staying with family in cottage in Burford in a few weeks. Won't be travelling any further west than Cirencester or Cheltenham so village / market town pubs welcomed.

We enjoyed The Five Alls in Filkins(1/2 way between Burford & Lechlade). Great for outdoor dining. Had very good fish at the Inn For All Seasons (on 40A at Windrush). Enjoyed the Plough Inn in Ford but a little touristy at lunch.

for dinner, consider the Dial House in Bourton on the Water - they have a tasting menu which is excellent, and fixed price 3 course meal is £35 per head. Beautiful old town house in centre of chocolate box village.

I was recently impressed by the food and drink - but gobsmacked by the view - at the Feathered Nest in Nether Westcote, which is close to Burford, but feels like it's worlds away.

It's tricky to escape most dinner times without a fairly stiffish bill. But the bar menu at lunch times is good value, and the view's as good.

Our fave of the moment for food is the Ebrington Arms, in Ebrington near Chipping Campden.

Another vote for the Ebrington Arms. The Wheatsheaf in Northleach has just received very good reviews too.
