Fabulous food and warm service in a wonderfully styled eclectic restaurant set in a beautiful cotswold mansion. A unique experience well worth seeking out.

“Lovely meal, trainee staff”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The meal itself was very good and they were obviously trying really hard to impress creatively. The staff however seemed very new and inexperienced. One waitress managed to knock a glass of very expensive white wine over and just sort of giggled and offered to replace with a glass of house white...not ideal. Other than that would definitely recommend!

“Cotswolds88 well worth a visit!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I was staying in the area on the 7th of October and had heard some great things about the food at the Juniper restaurant within the Cotswolds88 Hotel so I booked a table for me and a guest. The food was first class and the setting was brilliant but what really stood out was the service I received. I have been to many "top restaurants" and frankly the service levels have been mixed but from arrival to leaving the staff here were first rate. Anyway what you really want to know is how was the food(it is a restaurant after all) well I had the scallops and pork belly starter 10/10 and would highly recommend followed by the Venison main which was cooked to perfection and for dessert I had the coffee cheesecake(not to my personal taste nut my guest devoured it!)

To Summarize - well worth a visit, try the scallop and pork belly starter, the price isn't cheap but you get what you pay for and the service and setting are amazing!

“Excellent food.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We came for a meal at the Cotswold 88 following a review in the daily mail. We were staying at a near by hotel for my husbands birthday and fancied somewhere a bit special to eat. We were not disappointed, superb food, lovely atmosphere. Canapés were served to us in the bar area whilst we enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail, followed by a goats cheese mouse before at our table, before our 3 course meal. We will definitely be back, next time to stay at the hotel as well!
