A 'reinvention of the British inn', say Daylesford Organic, the owners. You can decide for yourself when you visit this rather upmarket, 18th-century Cotswolds pub, with its stripped-back walls, open fires and simple, hand-crafted furniture. Food is available from the rustic-chic bar - Lancashire hot pot with cucumber and red onion slaw and smashed fresh mint, for example - as well as the expansive restaurant, where a spanking-new open kitchen makes an eye-catching feature set against all the exposed stone and timbers. Britain, France and the Mediterranean all have their say in an eclectic menu, beginning with a two-way serving of mackerel involving a seared fillet with mint-infused pickled cucumber and rhubarb purée, and tartare with horseradish cream. Next up, sirloin and glazed rib of organic beef appear alongside slow-roasted bacon, onion purée, mushrooms infused with Chardonnay vinegar, and red wine sauce in a full-throttle dish that hangs together convincingly. For dessert, the palate-cleansing effect of a well-risen passionfruit soufflé is boosted further by passionfruit sauce poured in at the table, and offset by silky iced coconut. Or you might leave the final word to the cheese board and try Daylesford's tangy organic cheddar, aged for at least eight months. French wines hold sway, including a selection from Daylesford's own vineyard.
