Our Inspector's View

Set in Shurdington, on the verdant outskirts of leafy Cheltenham, The Greenway is an Elizabethan manor house of Cotswold stone, its façade half-hidden in clambering ivy. Up-to-the-minute spa facilities are always a draw, while the Garden Restaurant is named after its soothing view, with a majestic stone fireplace and venerable oak panelling adding lustre. Marcus McGuinness is a model modern-day practitioner, overseeing a thriving kitchen garden, engaging in forays into the countryside to gather wild provender, and sourcing thoroughbred prime materials, before turning it all into elegant, eye-catching dishes of striking character. Start with gratin of Cornish crab and white port, with sea buckthorn and ‘piggy cake’, before moving on to poached and roast Cornish brill with pumpkin, hazelnuts, mussels and sage, or spiced Goosnargh duck breast with quince, smoked eel and confit beetroot. Soufflés often feature at dessert – witness a fine dark chocolate version with coffee sorbet and whisky custard.

About The area

Discover Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire is home to a variety of landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages, roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watered by Britain’s longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring, and beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.

Throughout the county you are never far away from the past. Neolithic burial chambers are widespread, and so too are the remains of Roman villas, many of which retain the fine mosaic work produced by Cirencester workshops. There are several examples of Saxon building, while in the Stroud valleys abandoned mills and canals are the mark left by the Industrial Revolution. Gloucestershire has always been known for its abbeys, but most of them have disappeared or lie in ruins. However, few counties can equal the churches that remain here. These are many and diverse, from the ‘wool’ churches in Chipping Campden and Northleach, to the cathedral at Gloucester, the abbey church at Tewkesbury or remote St Mary’s, standing alone near Dymock.
