Michelin Star Restaurant in the Cotswolds

As one of the finest restaurants in the Cotswolds, we have held a Michelin star for eight consecutive years and are established as one of the best restaurants in Gloucestershire – indeed the Sunday Times include us in their review-based listing of the top 100 restaurants in Britain.

Our guests consider us a hotel with a terrific restaurant, others see us as one of the finest Michelin star restaurants with rooms! We’re happy either way, but there is no doubt that our restaurant, under Head Chef and brigade, forms the heart and soul of the hotel.

One of the finest restaurants in Gloucestershire

Exquisite Dining, French Influence, Cotswold Terroir

Without sourcing local for local’s sake, our Head Chef benefits from some excellent local and regional producers, fixing this Michelin star restaurant firmly in its Cotswolds territory. Local suppliers start with an excellent local cheesemaker, just down the lane.

‘Top 20’ Most Romantic Dining Rooms – The Times

Looking out over a private walled garden, the Lords’ dining room is everything that a Michelin star restaurant in the Cotswolds should be. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the bar or drawing room, then surrender yourself to our expert team of waiting staff, including our talented sommelier. Jeremie Guirard is guardian to some 1000 wine bins, carefully stored in the Lords’ 17th century cellars – do pop down for a look if you’re staying with us. Dinner is a beautifully paced piece of theatre, with various tasting menus available.

Afternoon Tea, Saturday Luncheon; Sunday Lunch and Private Dining

Afternoon Tea Gift Voucher

Afternoon Tea is a delight at Lords of the Manor – served on tiered trays with scones, finger sandwiches and cakes and a particularly fine selection of teas.

New for 2016, we are offering Saturday restaurant lunches – details here.

Sunday lunch is a Cotswold institution, three courses done properly – so much so that we have launched a Lunch Like A Lord card, with rewards for regular Sunday lunchers. Pick up a card on your next visit – don’t forget to allow time to explore our walled garden and lawns before or after lunch.

Lords of the Manor Private Dining

The hotel has a number of private dining rooms suitable for dining, from 4 to 50 guests.

Private Dining

Private dining at Lords of the Manor is a pleasing mix of the impressive (impeccable service and fine dining) and the charming, with the Lord’s often commented-on combination of warmth and hospitality to the fore.

Beyond the main restaurant, our dining options are the Conservatory (for 30), the Library (8), the Drawing Room (14) and the Pantry (9). The pantry is very popular for small dinner parties, a private room with the original bakery oven door featured.
