Dominic Wood heads up the young and passionate team in this 17th-century countryside pub that once had its own smithy. You’ll find it in the pretty Cotswold village of Asthall, where the Mitford sisters were raised. The church is worth a visit, and the manor often hosts public events. There’s a large selection of gin (65 and counting), well-conditioned cask ales, craft beers and ciders plus around 20 wines by the glass. The ambitious kitchen uses only the finest, fresh local ingredients to dishes such as seared pigeon breast, blackberry and Puy lentils; pea and broad bean risotto; and sage and wild boar burger.
