Start with confit of duck or goat's cheese souffle, followed perhaps by whole baked lemon sole with caper crushed potatoes or pork belly with apple mash and pak choi. De-lish desserts include honey and hazelnut tart.

See & Do
Land your own trout (and ask the chef to cook it for dinner) at nearby Bibury trout farm, and wander along Armitage Row – a fairytake line of cottages thought to be the oldest in England. Batsford Arboretum near Moreton-in-Marsh is one of the jewels of the Cotswolds. Broadway Tower, high above the village of the same name, offers outstanding views while Hailes Abbey at Winchcombe is in a lovely wooded setting.
Join the crowd for a match at the Beaufort Polo Club. The royal princes are often spotted here.
