When it comes to high society, a Cotswold village pub is proving to be making the head-lines.
The Kings Head, at Bledington near Stow on the Wold, has made it into the Tatler Restaurant Guide 2011.
The 16th century village green hostelry, run by Archie and Nicola Orr-Ewing for 11 years, is only one of 11 out-of-London Restaurants.
It rubs shoulder with the likes of gastronomic giants including Le Manoir Aux Quat Salsons, near Oxford and The Bath Priory. Tatler dubs the Inn as “picture-postcard perfect” underlining its “legendary status in the Cotswolds” and “fantastically chic rooms”.
Mentioning its great food, wine list and real ales it adds: “It’s hard to beat a glass (or bottle) of Laurent-Perrier in front of the log fire on a cold winter day”. Delighted Nicola said: “We try to hold our own. There’s a lot of attention to detail – we have good quality , affordable food, freindly staff and a great ambience.”
