“Almost excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

This highly popular restaurant ( do book in advance) almost totally fulfilled our expectations. The food was well cooked and imaginatively served. The wine was excelelnt and the price very reasonable. But why oh why does Joel allow his butter to be served with his excellent bread in prepacked plastic packing? Really a third-class let-down.

“Best restaurant in Chipping Campden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

As eating out is limited in the village we went to Joels on our last night and were not disappointed. Lovely setting and decor with efficient friendly service. The food was excellent and not overly priced for a quality restaurant.

“Joel is a fabulous chef. The food is superb, and the dining experience is fabulous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2012

There is a wide variety of food at Joel's. It can be a dining experience, or a "dinner" experience. There are places to eat inside and out. When you walk in, you have the feeling, its going to be good!! You will not be disappointed! I would love to go back!

“Excellent Food, ate there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

This was probably the best food we had in Chipping Campden. Maybe a little pricey, but we couldn't complain about the service, or the food. After the first night we ate there we immediately booked for another night as all six of us really enjoyed our meals. I would advise booking ahead as if the weather doesn't allow the outside tables to be used, inside space is quite limited.
