Description: Located in the luxurious Cotswold House in the centre of Chipping Campden, The Cotswold Grill is the hub of the hotel, serving drinks and meals throughout the day. The more laidback sister of the elegant Dinning Room, The Cotswold Grill boasts the same kitchen team, under the expert guidance of Head Chef Dave Watts, winner of the Good Food Guide Chef to Watch Award. The Cotswold Grill has its own street entrance, an open fire and bar, and a separate area for private dining overlooking the stunning glass sculpture. The epicentre of The Cotswold Grills chic and contemporary decor is the sweeping bar, which is the perfect place to read the papers and enjoy a cocktail or coffee before sitting down for your meal.

“Best steak ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Great meal in the Grill, which is far nicer than name suggests! Nice ambiance, friendly and helpful staff. Soup was beautifully served with a touch of theatre. Had a rib eye steak which was best steak I had ever had, melt in the mouth. Not cheap, but good value.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Cannot agree with all the people hating on the Cotswold Grill. Had a wonderful lunch there, staff were friendly and attentive without being at all invasive. The menu isn't expansive but the food was perfectly executed (in particular a treacle tart) and the portions were pretty good value. A great experience and in a truly exceptional location

“Would not recommend.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Travelling through the town and thought that the restaurant looked nice. However, the food was bland, service very slow and one side dish failed to materialise. No apology forthcoming so I asked for optional service charge to be removed from my bill. Still no apology!

“Almost there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food here is excellent throughout, and the service is very attentive.

An excellent place for us to share a dinner with our friends, and the wine was a wide selection, reasonably priced.

The only niggle was that the bread had to be paid for, and the portions of cheese, given the price, were very small.

However, that apart, each course was well prepared and delicious, and the four of us all had different choices, so they do a good spread.

We all would return, and would all return.

“Better options in Chipping Campden”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Ate here in Sept. '13 because we thought the menu looked good. Food was nothing special. Terrible fish and chips. Service was also not so great.
