“Russell's Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

I booked a night here for my partner's birthday and was expecting a nice place, but was incredibly pleasantly surprised just how lovely Russell's is. We were warmly welcomed by the bar staff who were really relaxed, friendly and helpful. We gratefully accepted an upgrade to the wonderful feature kingsize room in the eaves, which was immaculate. The honesty bar have the most amazing coffee machine and the drinks/snacks are well priced...makes a nice change! We loved our meal of risotto and the rib-eye steak, which was excellent value for money. We reluctantly checked out after a great breakfast. We loved it here and it comes in a very, very close second to Cowley Manor, which is way more expensive. Big thanks to Andrew and the team.

We stayed at Russells for 2 nights and the room was beautiful, spacious and great facilities. The breakfast was lovely and would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 overlooking the front and it was just lovely.

We spent one night here on our way to Wales. As soon as we got there the service was fantastic with one of the waiters coming out to take our bags from the car. We had a lovely 3 course dinner; my duck starter was a taste sensation. Broadway itself is a lovely village and I am sad we didn't have more time to explore it. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room and it was fantastic.

My girlfriend and I ate at Russell's recently and were both very impressed by the quality of the food. I had scallops to start which had a fantastic sauce, although my girlfriend was slightly disappointed with her asparagus and quail eggs. Whilst the main ingredients were faultless, the accompanying salad was ordinary and the goat cheese powder tasteless. However things improved dramatically when the mains were served. The inventive take on paella I had with seared monkfish, paella deep-fried in a ball and a rich sauce was one of the best dishes I've had anywhere! My girlfriend's turbot was also sublime. Dessert was again amazing with the most incredible flavours and the cheeseboard top notch. The only slight negative was that two random bottles of wine had been added to our bill my mistake, although the polite and attentive waitresses apologised profusely and soon corrected the bill. Overall I would definitely recommend Russell's for a top drawer meal that at times can astound.

Visited here for Dinner with friends from USA. We all thought is was very good and much better than expected. The menu choice was excellent and its very popular with visitors and locals alike and I hope to visit again when next in the area

Probably the best place to eat in Broadway !

A massive thank you to everyone for making the first leg of our honeymoon road trip so memorable.

We stayed in the feature room which was incredible and loved the Buddha on our way up the stairs!

We were greeted by Katrina who was so bubbly and friendly it set the whole tone for our stay. The young gentleman behind the bar was also equally as friendly as was Alice and the beautiful lady who served us breakfast outside in the sunshine the following morning. Bliss!

As for the food, one word. WOW!!!

Thank you all once again and we will definitely be paying you a return visit
