Russell's

César award in 2006

On one of the longest, most picturesque High Streets in England, Andrew Riley’s restaurant-with-rooms occupies the former showroom of pioneering furniture designer Sir Gordon Russell. Next door is a museum dedicated to his work. ‘Excellent food; great value for money,’ says a returning visitor this year. Behind the historic Cotswold stone exterior, interiors are contemporary and chic. In the air-conditioned bedrooms, modern styling blends with original architectural features. ‘We enjoyed our huge suite, which had a whirlpool bath.’ A room in the loft (facing the high street and hills) has A-frame beams, a king-size bed, a seating area with two armchairs; a natural stone bathroom. There is an honesty bar on the landing. An iron and ironing board are available on request. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the L-shaped dining room (bare floorboards, exposed beams). Neil Clarke cooks a daily-changing menu of modern dishes, perhaps pressed head pig terrine, red wine-glazed salsify; Bibury trout, soused beetroot, saffron potatoes. Another comment: ‘Excellent in pretty well all respects.’ (Tom and Sarah Mann)
  • There is no garden, and it is rightly described as a restaurant-with-rooms, but most of its rooms are special in their own way. We stayed in two. They were clean, with excellent furniture, though we have had better mattresses. Though the building overlooks the main street we were unbothered by traffic noise. The breakfast is comprehensive and served accurately. Dinner has a short fixed menu and a carte. The presentation and quality of the food are exceptional. The long wine list has a choice of reasonably priced house wines. The staff take trouble to please.
