Best way to find the Edgemoor Inn is to slowly follow the snake lke curves of the A4173, Gloucester / Stroud road to the village of Edge. the pub / restaurant is slightly set back on a tight cornerand has a very steep approach to the car park. That said, we followed the Sat Nav route for a fun tripdown increasingluy narrowing country lanes, which were topped with Cotswold stone.
We had a friendly welcome, and choice of window seats on an early but wet Monday.
The weather brightened, and the menus did not disappoint either.
The Edgemoor Inn has a good kitchen with some lovely local produce. Our choices of Lamb shanks, meat pies, and salmon were just right for this occaision.
We also had superb views across the Slad and Painswick valleys; no traffic in sight, and a landscape before us that seemed untouched since the late1920s "Cider with Rosie" days of local poet, Laurie Lee.
Edge is well named with great views froom the Inn across this picturesque and untouched corner of rural England; indeed we were able to work out the way that Sat Nav had chosen for us - a route seemingly from the past.
Desset followed with farmhouse size portions, matched by ploughmans ( horseman sized) cheese and biscuits /good local ales, and well choosen wines were complimented by friendly efficent service.
This small family get together was transformed into a memorable occaision for our special guest. She really apprecitated both the tranquil pastoral views, the meal and the products of this magical part of Gloucestershire.
Great day out/ excellent food/ drinks and service.
