Good Hotel Guide Review

In a ‘delightful’ 300-year-old Cotswold malthouse, Tony and Amanda Timmer continue to receive feathers in their cap. ‘A truly amazing hotel/restaurant/pub – call it what you will, it scores highly in each category.’ Mingle with locals in the pub (flagstone floors, sofas, log fire, cask-conditioned ales), then head into the ‘pretty’ dining room to savour the ‘excellent’ cooking of Raymond Blanc protégé Kuba Winkowski. ‘The chef deserves much wider recognition for his wonderful dishes. My stand-out dish was a plate of lobster so beautifully arranged that it could have been a work of art. The flavours were stunning.’ Up the stairs, modern, country-style bedrooms are ‘thoughtfully equipped’ with fresh flowers, books and magazines. ‘Spacious and comfortable, our room, Cuckoo’s Den, looked over the garden and rolling country. The bathroom had an efficient walk-in shower, and a roll-top bath under the eaves (not easily accessible for a tall person).’ After a ‘tasty’ breakfast, stroll through ‘meadows filled with wild flowers, orchids and all manner of butterflies’. (John Holland, and others)

'A truly amazing hotel/restaurant/pub - call it what you will, it scores highly in each category. Our special two night midweek break was a delight. Our room - 'Cuckoo's Den' - was spacious and comfortable with a view over the garden and rolling country. We had an efficient walk-in shower and a rolltop bath (under the eaves and not easily accessible for a tall person). My wife and I had just stayed a night in Marlow and had a great dinner at The Hand and Flowers (2 Michelin stars) with friends, so when I say that our food at the Feathered Nest was very bit as good, I am praising it very highly, indeed. My stand-out dish was a plate of lobster so beautifully arranged that it could have been a work of art and the flavours were stunning. Chef Kuba Winkowski, a protegée of Raymond Blanc, deserves much wider recognition for his wonderful dishes served in a pretty dining room overlooking the Cotswolds countryside. There are local walks through meadows filled with wild flowers and orchids and all manner of butterflies. We will definitely be back. ' - John Holland - July, 2015
