Food & Drink Experiences
Discover the flavours of the Cotswold countryside
While we all have different tastes, we assure you that the Cotswolds has very good taste. From local, country pubs to Michelin-starred fine dining, you are spoilt for choice no matter where you are staying. Visit award-winning Daylesford Organic Farm, the Three Choirs Vineyard, or simply the bakers down the road that everyone talks about.
Most experiences we list are seasonal, with menus changing as well as the opening hours, but we simply think this makes them all the better so you can visit the same place more than once and still discover and taste something new. And, in case we forgot to mention, many of our experiences are available to be delivered right to your cottage door.
Do you love to eat, drink and socialise? So does the Cotswolds.
