Good Hotel Guide Review

Far-reaching views across sheep-spotted countryside spool away from this ‘splendid’ 300-year-old malthouse-turned-restaurant-with-rooms above the Evenlode valley. The panorama is an additional feather in the cap for owners Tony and Amanda Timmer, who gain praise for their ‘warm welcome’ and ‘thoughtful hospitality’ – as does their ‘Michelin-quality’ restaurant. Raymond Blanc protégé chef Kuba Winkowski ‘bakes, ferments, churns, cures, dry ages and smokes’ everything in his ‘stand-out’ cuisine. His food is served in the ‘pretty dining room’ or out on the terrace and a minimalist approach is taken: scallops, air-dried ham, escabèche; celeriac, morels, egg yolk, wild garlic. ‘His wonderful cooking deserves much wider recognition.’ Downstairs, hand-pulled pints and a crackling fire in the popular, traditional pub (flagstone floors, sofas, cask-conditioned ales). Upstairs, ‘well-equipped, spacious’ bedrooms with a modern-rustic style; fresh flowers, plenty of books and magazines. ‘Our room was lovely; we appreciated the strong walk-in shower, but the bath under the eaves was impractical for a tall person.’ Next morning, a ‘tasty breakfast’. (JH, and others)

Guest comments

'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
