The
Experience

You don’t expect to find locals clamouring for a table in a country pub on a cold Tuesday in February, but different rules apply here. Emily, once junior sous-chef at the famous Fat Duck, is doing her own splendid thing and it’s small wonder the locals approve. The tithe barn is an exquisite dining room, its ceilings open to ancient rafters, where attentive staff deliver sublime food. Try Adlington chicken breast and ballotine with local apricots, sweetcorn and runner beans followed by white chocolate burnt custard with cobnut caramel, raspberry ice cream and macaroon. Provenance is king here, so expect the best local ingredients cooked to perfection by a talented (and award-winning) team. There’s a terrace for summer dining, and fruit trees, herbs and lavender in the garden. Charming bedrooms (which can be booked in adjoining pairs for families) have super-comfy beds with feather duvets and pillows, Egyptian cotton linen, armchairs, books and mini bars, and sparkling bathrooms with Neal’s Yard potions. Arrive by train straight from London to be met by a bus that delivers you to the door. The Daylesford Organic farm shop/café is close. Exceptional.
