“Finely tuned seasonal dishes” - AA Inspector
In the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, this charming little restaurant occupies two rooms, one of which has an open view of the kitchen. Neutral colours, chunky tables and flagstone floors add to the rustic look but the food is modern, big on flavour and deceptively complex. When they are in season, you might begin with Jersey Royals – skin on pieces cooked in seaweed butter – with a home-made salad cream and sea lettuce. Then it could be a carefully cooked, juicy piece of Isle of Gigha halibut with Wye Valley asparagus, crème fraîche and a drizzle of verdant lovage oil.

About the area
The sparkle of sunlight on a gentle river as it meanders through beautiful countryside; the reflections of sailing boats on a lake; relaxing with a pint in the garden of an old English pub in a picturesque village; brightly coloured narrow boats making their way through a flight of lock gates; the imposing silhouette of an historic castle. These are the scenes that make Warwickshire a delight.
There may be few seriously high hills in this fertile plain, but it is an area full of attractive walking in rolling countryside, blessed with a fascinating history and wonderful places and buildings to visit. This is Shakespeare’s county, and the footprint of the famous Bard appears almost everywhere. He was born and brought up around the beautiful Warwickshire town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and many of his plays draw upon his own experiences in the area.
Warwickshire has a history that embraces the Civil War, castles and large country houses are scattered over the county. Warwick Castle is the home of the Earl of Warwick, Kenilworth Castle was a stronghold for lords and kings of England in the 11th and 12th centuries, and so the list goes on.
