The Wheatsheaf Inn
Set in a charming Cotswolds village, this stylishly decked out old coaching inn is a real hidden gem. In good weather, you'll want to grab a seat in the spacious gardens, but dining inside is no hardship. Choose between the cosy bar with its painted stone walls or the spacious main dining room with polished wood floors, rugs, open fire place, button back leather banquettes, sturdy wooden chairs and some striking modern art. Heading up the kitchens is experienced and talented chef Anthony Ely, formerly of The Square and U2's The Clarence in Dublin who uses local seasonal produce from the best suppliers to create unpretentious rustic and delicious dishes including twice baked Cheddar soufflé with spinach and grain mustard and rump of Cotswold lamb with braised peas and lettuce and wild garlic pesto.
