Dining is available in both the informal Bistro On The Square, alongside fine dining dinner service in Fig Restaurant.

Noel Arms Hotel

Noel Arms Hotel is one of the oldest Cotswold inns and steeped in history. They even say that Charles II stayed here during the English Civil War. Things are a bit more relaxed these days. You can put your feet up in front of the log fire in the bar, and read the papers.

Treat yourself to a homemade cake in the excellent coffee shop, as well as enjoying the restaurant and bar, which features the very best produce from the Cotswolds. You can't leave without trying one of Chef Indunil's famous curries. So good that he has been named Best Pub Curry Chef Award at the Great British Pub Food Awards on three occasions.

Lords of the Manor Hotel

Lords of the Manor is the perfect destination for guests who wish to experience a truly enchanting getaway. This privately owned hotel can be found in the quaint Cotswold village of Upper Slaughter near Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold. Boasting idyllic scenery at every turn, this hotel sits at the heart of the village and showcases all that is loved most in the area.

It’s not difficult to see why it was recently named the Good Hotel Guide’s best Hotel with Gardens. Set in eight acres of lawns and grandiose gardens, this Cotswolds hotel dates back to 1649 and the honey-colored stone of the manor instantly evokes nostalgia for decadent pastimes without compromising on modern comforts.

Feathers Hotel

It’s not easy to find a seventeenth-century townhouse that embodies the best of boutique living and chic décor. Luckily for you, The Feathers is just that, an independent Oxfordshire hotel that is bursting with Cotswold charm and Oxfordshire heritage, not forgetting unique rooms and delicious food.

Combining the best of Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds, you’ll find The Feathers in the heart of the historic market town of Woodstock, close enough to the places that interest you most. You can share in the spoils of the superb location. When you’re not in awe of Blenheim Palace or punting in Oxford, you can take to the Cotswold hills or treat yourself to some retail therapy in Bicester Village.
