In the dining room, exposed timber and Cotswold stone create an intimate setting, and there are also tables on the terrace and in the garden with its fire pits and painted wooden planters. As for the food, expect the best of British and European produce from head chef Adam Abbot, previously of the Wild Rabbit and the Slaughters Manor House.
