Good Hotel Guide Review

‘However you look at it, it’s truly a delight.’ Guide readers find nothing to ruffle their feathers at Tony and Amanda Timmer’s ‘delightful’ restaurant-with-rooms. The rustic 300-year-old Cotswold malthouse sets a high standard, with a warm welcome and ‘Michelin-quality food’. In the ‘attractive’ dining room looking out across the Evenlode valley, Raymond Blanc protégé Kuba Winkowski creates ‘stand-out dishes that could be works of art’. Among his ‘stunning’, minimalist plates: scallop, langoustine, pork belly, sea urchin; fallow deer, beetroot, salsify, miso, cocoa bean. On a fine day, ask to eat on the garden terrace, under the old sycamore tree. Wind down with a nightcap by the fire in the bar, then head upstairs to one of the ‘spacious, comfortable’ bedrooms. Decorated in a modern rustic style, and with views of rolling countryside, each is ‘thoughtfully equipped’ with fresh flowers, books, magazines; an ‘efficient’ walk-in shower (most have a separate bathtub as well). Wake to a ‘delicious’ breakfast, then head out on a ramble through wild flower meadows filled with ‘all manner of butterflies’. (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
