The Lygon Bar & Grill

Since the extensive refurbishment at The Lygon Arms which was completed in Summer 2016, the Lygon Bar & Grill has become one of our favourite restaurants on date night. The great hall has always been beautiful and it’s a special space to enjoy. There is a lovely menu with plenty of choice - we particularly like the twice baked cheese souffle starter.


For main course we have had a perfectly cooked chateaubriand to share and on another occasion delicious Dover sole and an equally tasty bubble & squeak with hollandaise sauce & a poached egg. The traditional crumble pudding is scrummy and so is the tiramisu. There is also a vegan menu available as well as the vegetarian options. Choose one of the cosy lounges for a coffee or something stronger - the barkeeper will have lots of cocktails to tempt you! To book online or check the latest menus visit I’m looking forward to trying the beef wellington one day soon….


Buckland Manor Restaurant

We chose Buckland Manor for our date night on Tuesday as it was our Wedding Anniversary.  It's a very beautiful and romantic hotel which serves truly scrumptious food.

From the canapes with pre-dinner drinks, through all the courses and extra tasting dishes to the petit fours, everything we ate was delicious, interesting and stunningly presented. I chose Oxford blue pana cotta with Buckland vegetable and a nettle pesto to start; melt in the mouth Duck with with cripsy wonton for my main course; and raspberry soufflé for dessert.

Head Chef Will Guthrie and his team are certainly well deserving of the ‘Hotel Restaurant of the Year’ award they won at the Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards earlier this year.

Excellent service and even a pretty sunset through the window by our table made for a lovely and memorable evening.
