Our third visit to this super restaurant in Chipping Campden. It was Cheltenham Festival week so the place was heaving with racegoers who had had a good day's racing and no doubt a few pints of Guiness along the way! This did not deter our hosts who as usual were very welcoming and acoomodating. Beware: The portions are huge - even for Yorkshire folk! Large choice on the menu and special board - I had the lamb kebab (we always have the Meze to start with and share it) and this was delicious - it could almost have fed two of us.
We will definitely be returning to see Michael again - possibly on a Saturday night for the traditional greek plate smashing!

We recently held a party here for 48 people, where we took over the whole restaurant.
The service, food and accommodating nature of Sarah and Michael, made our evening very enjoyable.
We had the Meze menu, with a selection of delicious starters served to our table with warm pitta bread. The main course consisted of grilled meats and beef kleftico(?spelling) served with Greek salad and lovely homemade French fries.
The dessert selection was good and my chocolate torte was delicious.
Once we'd eaten, the dancing started and then the plate smashing began!!
There was also a curious option of climbing through a wall, which was great fun, even if a little odd! Everyone joined in though and a great evening was had by all.

Food was nice, not great, and over priced. A starter and main each and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and £90 lighter. It was not worth that and I wish we had gone somewhere else

I want to dip into my bag of superlatives to describe our spontaneous choice of lunch today at Michael's in the lovely Cotswold village of Chipping Norton...but taking to heart that more is less, I wll just say this was wonderful.
From the greeting by the owner, Michael, to the French Sauvigon, to the Mediterranean mesi ...to the gracious service and the friendly clientele...every moment, evey bite, every sip was a delight. A wonderful experience.
Make haste to this wonderful restaurant....and enjoy.
PS: the table linen was of the greatest quality. Shows a commitment to making the dining experience just that...an expereience.
