Description: The sybarites among you may well have heard of Gloucestershire's Three Choirs vineyard, England's most noted wine producer. And if you're loving the wine, you'll be rather excited to hear that you can dine among the vines too. The Three choirs restaurant is as English as you'd expect from one of the biggest local names on the shop shelves. Burgandy red walls surround black leather seating, tartan upholstered bucket chairs and brick pillars, a mix of classic and modern which touches on the eccentric. Head Chef Darren Leonard has created a menu which ensures that your experience is as much about the dining as the drinking - thoroughly British and totally indulgent.

We dined here last year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves so a return visit was a no-brainer.

I opted for the smoked mackerel pate for my starter. This was tasty, particularly the horseradish foam - though it would have benefited from some bread to eat it with. My main was a Gruyere cheese and leek tart. This was also well cooked and tasty.

My partner chose the chicken and chorizo as his starter. He thoroughly enjoyed this.He then selected the pork for his main. Although he enjoyed it he wished it had been cooked for a little longer - it had a hint of pink which is not to his liking.

For dessert I selected a pot of tea and my partner opted for the strawberry pavlova. The meringue had a shop-brought appearance and taste, which was a little bit of a let down. But the strawberries and cream made up for that.

As you would expect the wine was amazing. All-in-all a fair visit which would not deter us from visiting again.

Went for a meal here in a party of just 2.

Beautiful evening where we sat out having drinks looking over the valley and vineyards. Very attentive staff who helped us choose which of their English wines was close to a Cab Sauv. Their knowledge was spot on and a lovely wine was prescribed and duly enjoyed.

The decor, ambiance and attention to detail all pay off to give, a chilled, relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.

The menu is varied and interesting and the food superb. Portion sizes are adequate but a little on the small size. Big eaters would be disappointed, but as we are not we came away not still hungry, had our son been with us, he would have been. Look at the online menu and all we had was really beautifully done.

We had 2 starters, 2 mains and 1 desert, with a bottle of wine and coffee it was £100 plus tip.

We would go again, but if we were a party of 6 i.e. son, daughter and other halves this could easily have been £400, so it's for something special.

It was very busy and so book to avoid disappointment.

This is actually the closest restaurant to where we live, but we tend to visit only on special occasions. Each time the staff are attentive, the food excellent, and the setting and view unbeatable.

We didn't do the vineyard tour but did the wine tasting instead which was great. We could choose 5 wines each to taste and then we swapped round and tasted each other's. We then made decisions and bought 3 whites and the Rose. Lots of lovely wine.
Then we went in to have lunch and drank one of our favourite white wines. The lunch was good and the sofa where we could recover from all the wine and drink coffee were also good.
It's best to decide who is going to be the driver or go in a taxi.

Book onto one of the daily tours - fascinating tour of the vineyard and winery with an expert explaining the whole process - with a taste of the wines produced along the way. Then, wander round yourself through the vineyard along their nature trail and listen to more info on the vines and history at each of the arboretums along the paths. There ample parking, an excellent restaurant and of course, a shop!
