Originally an old malthouse in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with wonderful views over the Evenlode Valley, the Feathered Nest has come a long way since Tony and Amanda Timmer took over a down-at-heel pub and treated it to a classy makeover. Nowadays, the Nest combines the functions of country pub, upmarket restaurant and hotel. The bar is a real feature, with saddles as bar stools, and elsewhere flagstone floors, beams and an inglenook add character, while the restaurant is on two levels. The sophisticated cooking really sets the place apart, as this kitchen produces vibrant, balanced and inventive dishes based on sound techniques and quality seasonal produce. Wild sea trout is served with elderflower gel and flowers, gooseberries, Avruga caviar and cucamelon (combining the flavours of cucumber and lime) to make a light, tasty and diverting summer starter, while winter may bring on consommé with game tortellini, buckwheat, Madeira and truffle. Main courses might take in rack of lamb, of stunning flavour, in a light crust with broad beans, watercress and pine nuts with exemplary sauces of black garlic and lamb jus, or you might look to the charcoal grill for a no-nonsense rib-eye steak with skinny chips, béarnaise sauce and bone marrow. Fish fans could opt for equally well-considered turbot fillet with brown shrimp tortellini, chanterelles, samphire and borage. Puddings make an impact too: consider half a coconut shell containing lime-infused coconut cream with tapioca and diced mango accompanied by mango ice cream, or an ethereally light morello cherry soufflé with Valrhona Manjari chocolate sauce. With over 240 bins covering the Old and New Worlds, the wine list is a pretty impressive piece of work too.
