Places To Eat

This area has earned itself a well-deserved reputation as a foodie destination, for both the quality of eateries throughout the area and the array of produce on offer. You will be sure to find a lovely cafe, pub or restaurant in most of the towns and villages throughout the Cotswolds and, if it’s fine dining you’re after, there is a sprinkling of Michelin stars too. Here are a few places that we can personally recommend and all within a short driving distance of us:

With a varied menu, there is something for everyone to enjoy and you may even spot an internationally famous film star passing through. The Castle boasts an impressive open balcony (ask for a table by the window) and an attractive garden for al fresco dining. Afternoon Teas are also available.

Indian Queen at Wroxton

Telephone: 01295 678888 | Postcode: OX15 6HX (9 minute drive)

For freshly cooked and delicious authentic Indian cuisine; this place does not disappoint. Be sure to try the chicken shashlik and lamb madras!

Please note: We would advise booking in advance for all of them, especially if you are planning to visit at the weekend.
