The dining room is apalling - tons of over ornate pine, very 70s/pseudo Swiss - reminds me of a tawdry restaurant just off Leicester Square circa. 1971. The room is incongruous within the context of fine Cotswold buildings
Food is a mixed bag...a starter of egg, pancetta and lambs lettuce was awful - sloppy egg spooned over a plate of lettuce with shreds of pancetta - a poorly conceived dish. A duck terrine was Ok but served straight from the fridge which put paid to any flavour. Beef was good served with a poor cauliflower cheese, boiled carrots and a fondant potato (why?)...roast is one of those things that shouldn't be messed with too much - good roast potatoes would go much better than 'cheffy' fondants. Yorkshires were average.
Sweets were a mixed bag - Choc tart= good deep, bitter chocolate filling, very poor pastry and nice accompaniments. A deconstructed Lemon Meringue was another ill conceived idea - a really high quality traditional LM would beat it hands down rather than all this foamy, gloopy , s nonsense with shards of meringue served in a glass.
Service is good. You can get a really good Sunday lunch in many places within 20 miles of here that would leave this standing and save you money -.
