The Most Widely Acclaimed Restaurant in the Cotswolds
Experience our fine dining Cotswolds Restaurant
An established culinary destination and a much sought-after fine dining Cotswolds restaurant, at Lords of the Manor we combine excellent service and decadent dishes to deliver a truly special dining experience.
Listed in the Sunday Times’ Top 100 restaurants in Britain, and named as one of the Top 20 Most Romantic Dining Rooms by The Times and consistently recognised by the Good Food Guide, you truly don’t want to miss out on experiencing the finest restaurant in the Cotswolds.
Under Head Chef Charles Smith and his dedicated brigade, it’s clear that the passion and creativity of the kitchen truly forms the heart and soul of the hotel. Charles’ career is described by The Good Food Guide as one ‘of the blessed’ due to his stints at Thomas Keller’s Per Se (New York) and Alyn Williams’ The Westbury. Indulge in exquisite dishes that utilise Chef’s passion for sourcing the best producers. The cuisine combines French influence and Cotswold terroir, there’s no competition when it comes to our restaurant in the Cotswolds.
Looking out over a private walled garden, the Lords’ dining room is everything that a fine restaurant in the Cotswolds should be. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the bar or drawing room, before letting our expert team of waiting staff take care of you. Hundreds of wine bins are carefully stored in the Lords’ 17th-century cellars – our Sommelier would be delighted to show you around.
Dinner is a beautifully paced piece of theatre; with various tasting menus available, we’re certain you haven’t experienced anything like dining at Lords of the Manor.
Head Chef at Lords of the Manor is Charles Smith. Charles joined us after gaining experience at Petrus by Marcus Wareing, Per Se (at the time rated the best restaurant in New York, rated 10th in the world), Kitchen Table, Fera at Claridges, and most recently the Michelin Starred Alyn Williams at The Westbury.
Charles relishes the opportunities that Lords of the Manor’s rural setting offers and says that he simply aims to follow the seasons and to stay in touch with what is happening outside the kitchen in terms of producers and suppliers.Find out More
