Bronze Winner 2017
Pub Restaurant category – sponsored by FarmFrites

Judges comments - July/August 2017

'A beautiful location, remote in the Cotswold hills. Extremely welcoming, top marks for hospitality. When I said I was coeliac it was received with a confident smile and I was informed that the menu is gluten free, although they do serve gluten-containing foods. We were also given the specials - a printed slip and everything on that was gluten free too. In addition, we could choose from the pub menu too which included gluten-free pies.'

'It is not an overly exciting menu but a good offer none the less. I really liked that the fried squid, which was made GF for everyone. There were also three kinds of gluten-free pies, all made fresh in the kitchen, really delicious. The dessert offer was slightly disappointing – only three GF choices which included ice cream and cream brulée. I wanted a dairy free dessert so was offered the toffee pudding (checked with chef who altered the dish) with a sorbet.'
