Food is such a joyful part of getting away for a few days, whether it's prefaced with a nice long walk in the countryside or a glittering ride past city sites. Chefs including Hywel Jones, Raymond Blanc, Gary Jones and Matt Weedon feature on the roster of celebrated names at the UK's hotels, inns and pubs-with-rooms, while the destinations themselves offer beauty, charm and a delicious welcome. From a graciously restored Palladian mansion surrounded by manicured gardens and Cotswold countryside to a 15th-century Oxfordshire manor that has a been setting the standard for excellence in all areas for decades, from a thatch-roofed pub-with-rooms to a surprisingly dynamic village inn. The variety of places serving food and drink innovative and commendable enough to deserve this coveted award, spans the length and breadth of the UK.
