I booked the Gourmet Package for my husband's birthday due to some great reviews of the restaurant food and the nice-looking taster menu online.
First up, the hotel itself is utterly gorgeous - right on the main street in Moreton in typical Cotswold style; tourists were taking photos of it. On arrival we were given a mini tour and found it also boasts a beautiful back sun-catching patio and landscaped garden. We opted to have our Cream Tea (included in the package) on the patio in the sunshine and it was bliss - made better due to the unbelieveably fluffy and warm scones.
The dinner was absolutely great. We've had a few tasting menus in the past, including Michelin ones, and this I think was actually my favourite. The menus were personalised and presented to us in the bar to look over, and we had the choice on the evening of the standard menu or the seasonal Asparagus menu - the special one did look interesting but we decided on the standard due to some particularly tasty looking dishes.
Included in the package we had was the wine tasting flight, which we both enjoyed immensely. All the whites particularly were much more acidic than we would usually have chosen but they went very well with their courses. Special mention needs to go to the pigeon course which was the best pigeon I have eaten, and the two-lamb course which I purposely ate slowly to make it last longer. The cheese board also offered a selection of very local (i.e. the next village over!) cheeses which was nice to try.
I'm not going to lie; this was pretty darn expensive (watch out for the £16 service charge for the restaurant dinner that wasn't included in the package but was included in our bill). But overall we had a really wonderful stay and were talking about how great the dinner was days later.
