Local Pubs & Restaurants

We are very lucky to have an enormous number of great pubs and restaurants locally.
Here are our top local recommendations.

Wheatsheaf Inn, Northleach

The Wheatsheaf, Northleach
Sam and Georgie Pearman took on The Wheatsheaf 6-7 years ago and have created probably the best pub in the Cotswolds.  It has become so popular, in fact, that reservations are now usually necessary, Luckily only two miles away from us.
Telephone: +44 (0) 1451 860244

Plough Inn, Cold Aston

The Plough, Cold AstonThe Plough is back after a two-year hiatus.  Great news.  The Averys have refurbished and re-opened our local which is only a two-mile walk via Bang-Up Lane which makes a pleasant Summer meander, or a four mile car journey. Kitchen closed on Sunday evenings and all day Monday. Telephone: +44 (0) 1451 822602

The Old Butchers, Stow-on-the-Wold

The Old ButchersPete and Louise Robinson returned to The Old Butchers halfway down Park Street in Stow-on-the-Wold in June 2014 and we hope that it now becomes one of our top local recommendations again. We shall keep it under review! Telephone: +44 (0) 1451 831700

If you would like to grab a bite in Bourton-on-the-Water we recommend The Croft at the Chester House Hotel and The Rose Tree.

The Rose Tree is also just by the river and often presents a better option than Bourton's more cafe-style eateries. Telephone: +44 (0) 1451 820635
